As software development is now part of the global economy, requirements
engineering is the key bridge between the customer and supplier.
Understanding and translating users' needs into effective solutions has
always been vital; however, as development is outsourced, requirements
have to reflect cultures and languages and local needs. Furthermore,
understanding requirements becomes a collaborative activity across time
and space. The IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference
provides the premier international forum for researchers, educators and
industrial practitioners to present and discuss the most recent
innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in the field of
requirements engineering.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
  - requirements elicitation, analysis, documentation, validation and
  - requirements specification languages, methods, processes and tools;
  - requirements management, traceability, viewpoints, prioritization and
  - modelling of requirements (formal and informal), goals and domains;
  - prototyping, simulation and animation;
  - evolution of requirements over time, product families and
  - relating requirements to business goals, products, architecture and
  - social, cultural, global, personal and cognitive factors in
     requirements engineering;
  - domain-specific problems, experiences and solutions.

We will invite submissions of high quality papers in four categories:

Technical solution papers present solutions for requirements-related
problems which are novel or significantly improve existing solutions. A
technical solution paper must include a preliminary validation of the
proposed solution.

Scientific evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or
validate/refute proposed solutions with scientific means, i.e. by
empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, formal
analyses, mathematical proofs, etc. Scientific reflection on problems
and practices in industry also falls into this category.

Industrial practice and experience papers present problems or challenges
encountered in practice, discuss insights, innovations in industrial
practice, success and failure stories. The focus is on 'what' and on
lessons learned, not on an in-depth analysis of 'why'. Otherwise,
consider submitting a scientific evaluation paper.

Theory/vision papers propose and illustrate new views and theories
underpinning RE, present creative new ideas, rethink current notions,
etc. Please note that this is not a forum for research proposals or
immature technical solution papers.

More details about the paper categories and corresponding review
evaluation criteria submission dates are provided on the conference

Papers must describe original work not submitted or presented at other
forums. Accepted papers will be published in an IEEE CS Press Conference
Proceedings and will be available in the IEEE CS Digital Library.

Submissions will be handled electronically at the RE'07 submission site.
Authors without web access must make advance arrangements with the
Program Chair at least one week before the deadline. Technical solution
and scientific evaluation papers must not exceed 10 pages. Industrial
practice and theory/vision papers must not exceed 6 pages. Submissions
must be formatted according to the IEEE CS proceedings format (see for instructions and
templates). More detail on submission procedures will be available on
the conference website.

We also invite proposals for tutorials, workshops, panels, doctoral
symposium contributions, posters, videos, and research demonstrations.
