Call For Papers

Call for Papers
Third International Workshop on Requirements Patterns (RePa’13)
July 15, 2013, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In conjunction with the 21th IEEE Requirements Engineering Conference

Getting requirements right is critical to the success of just about any software development project, and yet oftentimes challenging and in need of a large amount of knowledge and experience. "Patterns" have been used to capture knowledge of software development, concerning software architectures, designs, and more recently requirements engineering too. This workshop provides an open forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experience, regarding pattern-based approaches to capturing, organizing, and reusing all aspects of requirements engineering-related knowledge, from both process and product perspectives.

RePa’13 Workshop invites two types of submissions: papers on specific patterns and technical papers. The accepted papers will be available in a proceedings published by the IEEE Digital Library.

Papers on Specific Patterns:
A pattern paper presents one or more related requirements process/product patterns, including, but not limited to:

- Requirements modeling patterns
- Requirements engineering process/activities patterns
- Application/domain-specific requirements patterns
- Application/domain-independent requirements patterns
- Functional requirements (FRs) patterns
- Non-functional requirements (NFRs) patterns
- Goal patterns
- Social aspect patterns
- Scenario patterns (e.g. use cases, user stories)
- Workflow patterns
- Business patterns
- Analysis patterns
- Problem patterns (e.g. anti-patterns, mis-use patterns, fault patterns, attack patterns)
- Requirements to architecture/design mapping patterns

Technical Papers:
A technical paper may be a full or position research paper, an experience report, an empirical study, or a case study that reports findings on requirements pattern-related topics, including, but not limited to:

- Pattern capturing
- Pattern harvesting and mining
- Pattern cataloging (e.g. by categories)
- Pattern organization (e.g. by relationships such as uses, meta-pattern/occurrence, generalization/specialization, aggregation/decomposition)
- Pattern searching, identification, and selection
- Pattern reuse and application
- Pattern quality
- Pattern management
- Tool support
