The 2015 Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES 2015)
Wuhan, China,19-­‐20 Oct 2015

Theme: Requirements Engineering for Big Data Applications

Following its success in New Zealand, the Second Edition of the Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES 2015) will be held at Wuhan University, in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. Wuhan is a beautiful historical city, sits in central China, with the Yangzi River running across the city landscape.

The importance of developing and following effective requirements engineering practices has long been recognised by researchers and practitioners alike, especially when facing latest advancements in socio-­technological needs in various industrial sectors, such as, e-commerce, manufacturing and healthcare, this year, we hope to concentrate our discussion on RE for Big Data Applications. Requirements Engineering (RE) as an established discipline of research and practice in software and systems development has established an RE community worldwide. According to the growing interest in RE research and practice, the APRES symposia is to develop and expand the RE research and practice community specifically in the Asia Pacific region and to foster collaborations among local researchers and practitioners in Asia and Oceania Area. 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, processes and practices are most welcome. We are also interested in reflections on current industrial RE practices and also encourage researchers and practitioners from fields that is cross-­‐cutting with RE such as Business Analysis, Software Engineering, Information Systems, Data and Systems Engineering, Service Sciences, Human Computer Interaction, Social Sciences, and Management to join the forum.

The two-­‐day event will include:
• Keynote talks
• Research track sessions, accepted research papers will be presented
• Industry track sessions, tool demos, case studies 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 2015) will be published by the Springer as a volume of Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-­‐Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings. The authors are advised to apply Springer conference paper templates for formatting their papers, which can be found in the author’s instruction page here:­‐164-­‐6-­‐793341-­‐0

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’15, 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 (10-15 page)
• Full industry paper (10-­15 pages) or Industry Demo Abstract (2-­‐6 pages)
• Research previews reporting early stage research results (10-­‐12 pages)
• Vision papers (4-6 pages)
