In parallel to the scientific program, RE'09 has a track that  
specifically addresses practitioners, featuring invited talks by  
industrial experts, mini-tutorials, tool experience talks and  
industrial practice papers.

Companies who wish to exhibit and demonstrate requirements engineering  
support tools should contact Richard Welke (rwelke at ceprin.org).
Space will be available in the exhibition area and tool demonstrations  
will be scheduled during coffee breaks and as part of the  
demonstrations session. There will be charge for commercial tool  
exhibits depending on the space required. Exhibition proposals will be  
considered whilst there is room in the conference exhibition space.

The Doctoral Symposium is a one-day workshop that gives Doctoral  
students the opportunity to present their research and receive  
feedback in a constructive and international atmosphere.

We are looking for Masters and PhD students to help us run the  
conference. In return for about 12-16 hours of their time, student  
volunteers will receive a complimentary registration. Apply by June 15  
to Carl Stucke (cstucke at gsu.edu).


The world is becoming ever more dependent on software intensive  
systems. They are central to our economy, to our society, to the  
services we depend upon and, increasingly to the very survival of the  
global ecosystem. Despite many failures, some of them very well  
publicized, the engineering of such systems has improved consistently  
over the past few decades. However many challenges remain. Every  
computer-based system involves relating the myriad, informal facets of  
the real world to the intricate and formal specifics of a software  
system. Understanding potentials or details of software systems is not  
expected of stakeholders, who have their own specialized concerns.  
Similarly, the eager and technologically capable developers are not  
expected to understand the nuances of the many domains where software  
applies. Requirements Engineering (RE) is the essential capability  
that can bridge the two perspectives. The RE activity is multi- 
disciplinary. When defining the requirements of major systems we must  
bring to bear expertise from a wide range of specialisms such as Human- 
Computer Interaction, Systems Modeling, and Security. The RE research  
field builds the effective bridges between these and other sub- 
disciplines of the Computer Science and Information Systems fields.  
The many computer-based system needs of business and society are often  
contradictory, inadequately defined, and rapidly changing. RE helps  
stakeholders communicate, helping to reconcile their conflicts,  
clarify their goals, and reflect their priorities. If our society is  
to seek a better future we will need all of the models, methods, and  
tools that RE can provide.
