REFSQ 2019 : 25th International Working Conference on Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality


Conference Series : Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality
When Mar 18, 2019 - Mar 21, 2019
Where Essen, Germany.
Abstract Registration Due Sep 24, 2018
Submission Deadline Oct 2, 2018

Call For Papers

Requirements Engineering (RE) is a critical factor for developing high-quality and successful software, systems, and services. The REFSQ working conference series is a well-established leading international forum for discussing current and state-of-the-art RE practices, now celebrating its 25th edition: REFSQ started in 1994 and has been organized as a stand-alone conference since 2010. In April 2019, we again welcome participants to attend REFSQ'19 in Essen, Germany.

REFSQ 2019 seeks reports of novel ideas and techniques that enhance the quality of RE’s products and processes, reflections on current research and industrial RE practices, as well as new views on RE. We invite submissions on any aspect of RE. We encourage researchers and practitioners from the fields of RE, software engineering, information systems, service science, embedded systems, and product management to present original work. Contributions from further related areas such as systems engineering, economics, and management are also very welcome for the insights they provide to RE. The special theme of REFSQ’19 is “Laying the foundation for Speed and Flexibility in Development” and we seek contributions related to increased pace of developing, deploying, using, and evolving software based systems and services.

We invite original submissions in several categories:

- Technical design papers (15 pages) describe and explain new artefact design, i.e. novel solutions for requirements-related problems or significant improvements of existing solutions.

- Scientific evaluation papers (15 pages) investigate existing real-world problems, evaluate existing real-world implemented artifacts, or validate newly designed artifacts, e.g. by means such as case studies, experiments, simulation, surveys, systematic literature reviews, mapping studies, or action research.

- Vision papers (6 pages) state where the research in the field should be heading.

- Research previews (6 pages) describe well-defined research ideas at an early stage of investigation which may not be fully developed.

Please submit your paper through the EasyChair system.
