The First Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES)

Auckland, New Zealand

28-29 April 2014

The Inaugural Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES) will be held at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Auckland, New Zealand.
Requirements Engineering is now a well established discipline of research and practice in software and systems development. The importance of developing and following effective RE practices has long been recognised by researchers and practitioners alike. In the last 21 years the International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE) has established an annual venue for exchange of ideas and has supported the RE community worldwide. The main aim of this symposium is to develop and expand the RE research and practice community specifically in the Asia Pacific region and to foster collaborations among researchers and practitioners in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. We also welcome participants and presentations from other parts of the world.
We invite submissions on all aspects of Requirements Engineering. In particular, those papers that present novel ideas, methods, tools, and techniques for improving and enhancing RE products and processes are welcome. We are also interested in reflections on current industrial RE practices and also encourage researchers and practitioners from fields other than RE such as Business Analysis, Software Engineering, Information Systems, Systems Engineering, Service Sciences, Human Computer Interaction, Social Sciences, and Management to submit papers.
Structure: The two-day event will include:
· Keynote talks
· Research track sessions, accepted research papers will be presented
· Industry track sessions, case studies and reflections will be presented
· Invited presentations based on a substantial body of previously published work with special relevance to Industry

Papers submitted to the APRES should contain original contributions. APRES international program committee will review and select the papers to be presented.

The proceedings of the first Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES 2014) will be published by the Springer as a volume of Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS):

The authors are advised to apply Springer conference paper templates, which can be found in the author’s instruction page here:

Authors should use the following link to Easychair system to submit their papers:

We invite original research and industry paper submissions in all areas of RE including elicitation, modelling, analysis, specification, validation and management. Following the categories of RE’14, we accept Technical Solution papers that describe and validate better solutions to requirements problems, Scientific Evaluation papers that evaluate existing problem situations or proposed solutions by scientific means and Vision papers that explore successes and challenges of requirements practices, or present research roadmaps. Industry submissions include application of RE techniques in real-world settings, problems encountered in practice and reports on innovative approaches to RE practice in industrial or government settings.
We invite original submissions in the following categories:
· Full research paper (up to 15 page)

· Full industry paper (up to 15 pages)

· Research previews (reporting research results at an early stage) or vision papers (up to 6 pages)
