Conference Overview

RE'17 will offer an extensive program of interest to academia, government and industry. It will include several distinguished keynote speakers and three conference days full of papers, panels, posters and demos. A series of exciting tutorials to develop skills in and advance awareness of requirements engineering practices is of particular interest to industry. Two days of workshops as well as doctoral symposium offer forums for participants to present cutting-edge techniques and approaches in particular fields.

RE'17 follows the theme
"Desperately Seeking Less": The Role of Simplicity and Complementarity in Requirements

Call for Contributions

RE'17 invites original submissions of research papers, RE@Next!, industry papers, and data track papers in all areas of RE including elicitation, specification, modeling, analysis, verification and evolution. Categories of research papers include Technical Solution papers that describe and validate better solutions to requirements-related problems, Scientific Evaluation papers that evaluate existing problem situations, real-world artifacts or proposed solutions by scientific means, and Perspective papers that explore successes and challenges of requirements practices and research agendas or present research roadmaps, possibly derived from a literature review. RE@Next! papers are short communications that describe the current status of ongoing research. Industry papers report on the application of RE techniques in real-world settings, present problems or challenges encountered in practice and report on innovative approaches to RE practice in industrial or government settings. Data track papers are described above. RE'17 welcomes submissions also for workshops, tutorials, panels and interactive events, posters and tool demos and the doctoral symposium.

The RE Conference is celebrating its 25th edition! RE'17 invites submissions for a special session: the RE Silver Jubilee.

Extended versions of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Requirements Engineering Journal.


Conference Venue

The mythical city of Lisbon

The historical city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, carries many colorful legends. With its fado music, its colors and accent, Lisbon is a friendly and tolerant city by tradition. An amalgam of 800 years of cultural influences mingle with modern trends and life style, creating intricate and spectacular contrasts. Spread across seven hills always opening a window towards the majestic Tagus River. With its heart and soul in the Mediterranean and a history linked to the Atlantic, Lisbon is one of Europe’s most intriguing cities. This is the city from where the great explorers set off to discover new continents in the 15th century, and continues as visionary and as cosmopolitan today; its monuments and stunning architecture is now the backdrop to vibrant creativity, culture and business. With so much to offer, Lisbon gives a warm welcome to all RE 2017 participants.
