                 Call for Participation and Contributions

   15th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'07)

                   October 15th-19th 2007, Delhi, India
                           http://www.re07.org

            "Understanding Requirements in the Global Economy"
________________________________________________________________________

Why should I be interested in Requirements Engineering ?

   - It is about the difficult part of software development - delivering
     system people really want
   - It's practical about processes, tools, and advice on process and
     quality improvement for software systems
   - It's key for the global software industry, understanding to create
     successful systems world wide

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, industrial
practitioners and students to present and discuss the most recent
innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in the field of
requirements engineering.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Ivar Jacobsen
   Dr Jacobsen is the creator of 'Use cases' and co founder of the Object
   oriented design movement, UML and the Rational Unified Process.

Anthony Finkelstein
   Professor Anthony Finkelstein is one of the founders of Requirements
   Engineering discipline and organised the 1st IEEE Symposium on
   Requirements engineering in 1993. he is a world leading authority on
   many aspects of RE.

Kris Gopalakrishnan
   Kris Gopalakirshnan is President and co-founder or InfoSys, one of the
   leading software companies in India who are at the leading edge of
   delivering global software service. Kris is one of the leaders in
   India's success in off shore software development.

LOCATION
RE'07 will be hosted in the Habitat World Convention Centre which
provides excellent facilities with an environment of Indian culture.
October in Delhi is the best time to come to India, pleasantly warm and
sunny. Delhi offers first class hotel and tourism opportunities.

Attending RE'07 will give you:
   - International state of the art research
   - World wide perspective on Industrial experience and best practice
   - Discussion, networking, opportunities to learn from the world's key
     researchers and industrialists.

RE'07 include research and industrial experience papers on :
requirements elicitation, analysis, documentation, validation and
verification; requirements specification languages, methods, processes
and tools; requirements management, traceability, viewpoints,
prioritization and negotiation; modelling of requirements (formal and
informal), goals and domains; prototyping, simulation and animation;
evolution of requirements over time, product families and variability;
relating requirements to business goals, products, architecture and
testing; social, cultural, global, personal and cognitive factors in
requirements engineering; domain-specific problems, experiences and
solutions.

CONTRIBUTIONS YOU CAN STILL SUBMIT

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

IMPORTANT DATES
Doctoral symposium, poster and other submissions    May 11, 2007

POSTERS, DEMOS AND EXHIBITS
RE'07 is extending the traditional poster session to promote more
interaction and discussion. We invite proposals that emphasise
interaction with conference participants and provide for an engaging
experience.

POSTERS present late-breaking research or work in progress. We encourage
submission of posters that are augmented with a video of an ethnographic
study or with examples of the use of rich media in requirements
engineering, including requirements visualizations, multimedia
requirements documents, scenarios, storyboards and vision/concept
materials. Additionally, we seek proposals on how to run well designed
experiments or role-play exercises during requirements sessions, or
experience in interactively exploring problems and use of emerging
techniques and tools, and to share approaches to teaching and training.

We particularly encourage the submission of posters augmented with:
   * Video samples from ethnographic studies;
   * Examples of the use of rich media in Requirements Engineering,
     including requirements visualizations, multimedia requirements
     documents, scenarios, storyboards and vision/concept materials.

We also seek proposals from research teams who would like to run
interactive sessions during the poster session. These sessions may take
one of the following forms:
   * An experiment or role-playing exercise to demonstrate techniques or
     tools in Requirements Engineering during the poster session;
   * The interactive exploration of a problem space during the poster
     session;
   * The hands-on use of emerging research techniques (e.g. how to do i*
     modeling) during the poster session;
   * Sharing successful approaches to the teaching and training of
     Requirements Engineering topics.

DEMOS provide the opportunity for research teams and vendors to
demonstrate their prototypes or tools. We seek proposals that further
give the audience the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with these
technologies or interactively demonstrate how to use popular
requirements engineering techniques, e.g. participants may try the tools
in an experiment-like and role-playing setting. All accepted demos
should be supported by an accompanying poster display. For more
information contact Olly Gotel & Daniela Damian

DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
The RE'07 Doctoral Symposium is a one-day closed workshop that gives
doctoral students the opportunity to present their research and receive
feedback in a constructive and international atmosphere. A panel of
leading researchers give feedback on presentations and discuss students'
research directions.

Who should participate: Student participants should consider
participating in the Doctoral Symposium at least six months before
completion of their dissertation to receive feedback on completed work,
or earlier when they settled on a research area or thesis topic to gain
advice on shaping the thesis direction, and feedback on preliminary
results.

Submissions: a short paper (2-3 pages up to 1500 words maximum)
describing your dissertation research. An expectation and benefits
statement (1 page, 500 words maximum) describing what advice you like to
receive and the benefits you expect to gain from attending the doctoral
consortium. You should seek your supervisor's guidance when preparing
this statement. Your paper should state
   * the problem to be solved in your thesis (justify why this problem is
     important and make clear that previous research has not yet solved
     that problem),
   * your research hypothesis (claim),
   * the expected contributions of your dissertation research,
   * summary of results (if appropriate).
