Second International Workshop on the Twin Peaks of Requirements and
Architecture (TwinPeaks 2013)
May 21, 2013, San Francisco, USA

In conjunction with the 35th International Conference on Software
Engineering (ICSE 2013)


Separating requirements engineering and architecture design is neither
feasible nor reasonable as requirements and architecture impact each other.
The Twin Peaks draws attention to this synergistic relationship between
requirements and architectural design. It emphasizes the need to
progressively discover and specify requirements while concurrently exploring
alternative architectural decisions. Bridging requirements engineering and
software architecture has been explored in the requirements and architecture
communities, but mostly independently. Thus, TwinPeaks 2013 provides a forum
for practitioners and researchers from both communities to jointly explore
the issues and challenges related to the interplay between requirements and
architecture across all phases of the software development lifecycle. These
challenges are particularly evident in agile and lean development
environments, or when new requirements are introduced into existing and
well-established architectures. The workshop will explore techniques for
specifying architecturally significant requirements, for creating, and
assessing architectures, and for managing and visualizing the interplay
between requirements and architectures. It will also identify open research
challenges for delivering robust and effective architectures that satisfy
stakeholders concerns, at continually increasing levels of scale,
complexity, and delivery speed.

We welcome research papers (6 to 8 pages), position papers (3 to 5 pages),
experience papers (4 to 6 pages), and pedagogical papers (4-6 pages).
