Call for Papers The First Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium
(APRES) Auckland, New Zealand

28-29 April 2014

*www.apres2014.org <http://www.apres2014.org>*

The Inaugural Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES) will
be held at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Auckland, New

Requirements Engineering is now a well established discipline of research
and practice in software and systems development. The importance of
developing and following effective RE practices has long been recognised by
researchers and practitioners alike. In the last 21 years the International
Requirements Engineering Conference (RE) has established an annual venue
for exchange of ideas and has supported the RE community worldwide. The
main aim of this symposium is to develop and expand the RE research and
practice community specifically in the Asia Pacific region and to foster
collaborations among researchers and practitioners in Asia, Australia, and
New Zealand. We also welcome participants and presentations from other
parts of the world.

We invite submissions on all aspects of Requirements Engineering. In
particular, those papers that present novel ideas, methods, tools, and
techniques for improving and enhancing RE products and processes are
welcome. We are also interested in reflections on current industrial RE
practices and also encourage researchers and practitioners from fields
other than RE such as Business Analysis, Software Engineering, Information
Systems, Systems Engineering, Service Sciences, Human Computer Interaction,
Social Sciences, and Management to submit papers.

*Structure: *The two-day event will include:

·        Keynote talks

·       Research track sessions, accepted research papers will be presented

·       Industry track sessions, case studies and reflections will be

·       Invited presentations based on a substantial body of previously
published work with special relevance to Industry

*Submissions: *

Papers submitted to the APRES should contain original contributions. APRES
international program committee will review and select the papers to be
presented. The Symposium proceedings will be published by a well-known
publisher after the event. Papers must conform to the formatting
instructions that will be provided on the APRES web site and will be
submitted using Easychair system. Submissions should be in PDF, on A4 page
size and formatted in LNCS style, see link for details:


We invite original research and industry paper submissions in all areas of
RE including elicitation, modelling, analysis, specification, validation
and management. Following the categories of RE’14 <http://www.re14.org>, we
accept Technical Solution papers that describe and validate better
solutions to requirements problems, Scientific Evaluation papers that
evaluate existing problem situations or proposed solutions by scientific
means and Vision papers that explore successes and challenges of
requirements practices, or present research roadmaps. Industry submissions
include application of RE techniques in real-world settings, problems
encountered in practice and reports on innovative approaches to RE practice
in industrial or government settings.

We invite original submissions in the following categories:

·      Full research paper (up to 15 page)

·      Full industry paper (up to 15 pages)

·      Research previews (reporting research results at an early stage) or
vision papers (up to 6 pages)
