Call For Papers

The objective of the RET workshop is to explore the interaction of Requirements
Engineering (RE) and Testing, in research and industry, and the challenges that
result from this interaction. RET provides a forum for exchanging ideas and best
practices for aligning RE and testing, and helps foster industry-academia
collaboration on this topic. The workshop encourages participant interaction
through panel discussions of presented papers, and by an interactive session
during which the participants together define a roadmap for research in the area
of RET.
Submissions should either discuss challenges involved in RET alignment, or
propose approaches on how to best align RET. This can include processes,
practices, artifacts, methods, techniques, tools and softer aspects like the
communication between roles in the development lifecycle. We particularly
encourage submissions from industrial practitioners or those working with
industrial partners.

RET'16 solicits papers that discuss both RE and Testing aspects, and the
interaction between them. The list of suggested topics is based on the mapping
exercise conducted during RET'14:
- Processes and practices for supporting RET alignment
- Requirements-based testing processes and techniques, e.g. optimizing testing
according to req. prioritization
- Testability of requirements, impact of requirements quality to test quality
- Model-based testing, test-driven and behavior-driven development
- Traceability between requirements and tests, also including requirements
evolution and regression testing
- Metrics for assessing and monitoring RET alignment
- Context-specific RET alignment, e.g. for OSS development, continuous deployment,
safety-critical systems
- RET at different phases of the development lifecycle
- Scalability of RET alignment, RET for big data
- RET alignment for non-functional and quality requirements
- Organizational aspects of RET alignment, including training and education
- Automation techniques to support RET (e.g. based on machine learning,
information retrieval)
- Collaboration and communication between requirements engineers and testers
- "Good enough" RET alignment, balancing effort and return of investment
- Empirical research on RET alignment
- Tools supporting RET alignment, e.g. management, visualization, monitoring

We invite submission of papers of the following types:
* Technical Papers (max. 15 pages): Full papers presenting research results or
industrial practices related to the coordination of Requirements Engineering and
* Position papers (max. 6 pages): Short papers introducing challenges, visions,
positions or preliminary results within the scope of the workshop. Experience
reports and papers on open challenges in industry are also welcome.
Technical papers will be evaluated with respect to the research contribution of
the work, with preference being given to work that significantly relates
requirements engineering and testing. Position papers are short papers that
present early results and outline challenges and positions related to the
relationship between RE and testing, and will be evaluated according to their
ability to generate discussion and suggest interesting areas for future
research. Work related to industrial problems or motivated from an industrial
context is especially welcome.

Authors should submit through the RET'16 submission site
( Papers must be written in
English and conform to the REFSQ 2016 Springer LNCS format and submission
guidelines. For details see the workshop site. All papers will undergo a
rigorous review by at least three members of the program committee. Accepted
papers will be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings.
Extended versions of invited papers will be considered for publication in a special
issue of The Journal of Information System Modeling and Design.
