For the past twenty-eight years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has been a primary
gathering forum for applied computer scientists,computer engineers,
software engineers, and application
developers from around the world.

The Seventh Edition of the Requirements Engineering Track (RE-Track'14) is
part of the 29th ACM
Symposium on Applied Computing. SAC 2014 is hosted by Seoul National
University, Kyungpook National
University, Soongsil University, and Dongguk University. SAC 2014 will held
in the historic city of Gyeongju,
 known as the Museum without Walls

Requirement Engineering is defined as the branch of Software Engineering
concerned with the real-world goals
for, functions of, and constraints on software systems; it is also
concerned with the relationship of these factors
to precise specifications of software behaviour and to their evolution over
time and across software families.
Requirements engineering is increasingly recognized as a critically
important activity in any systems engineering

The arising of many complex software applications in many multidisciplinary
domains, the speed with which they
need to be developed, and the degree to which they are expected to change,
all play a role in determining how the
systems development process should be conducted. Independently of the
nature of the software, the elicitation,
analysis, negotiation, specification, validation and management of
requirements are fundamental for the development
of quality in complex software. Only by fully understanding stakeholders'
needs, and documenting them in a concise,
 and unambiguous way, can consistently deliver quality products designed to
meet the complexities of our advanced
information society.

However, there area number of inherent difficulties in the RE process. The
existing methods for requirements specification
are far from being  completely satisfactory. Requirements must be
measurable, testable, related to identified business
and other field needs or opportunities, and defined to a level of detail
sufficient for system design. The demand for better,
faster, and more usable software systems will continue, and RE will
therefore continue to evolve in order to deal with different
 development scenarios which must be considered. Besides that, many new
areas are being investigated by requirements
engineering community (such as: aspect-oriented or agents-oriented
development, COTS-based systems, use of simulation
techniques, autonomic system) to achieve better ways for leading with the
involved complexity.

The objective of this track is to explore different advances in requirement
engineering in a general way, its relation with different
 areas, reducing the gap between software engineering solutions and the way
one specific domain of knowledge was seen up
 to given point.


These are the main areas of concern in Requirements Engineering:
* Requirements Engineering for Scientific Areas
* Requirements elicitation, analysis, documentation
* Requirements specification languages, methods, processes, and tools
* Requirements management, traceability, viewpoints
* Modelling of requirements, goals, and domains
* Non-functional requirements
* Requirements engineering and software architecture
* Aspect-oriented requirements engineering
* Agent-oriented requirements engineering
* Requirements for COTS-based systems
* Case studies and experiences based on requirements engineering
* Social, cultural, and cognitive factors in requirements engineering
* Requirements engineering: education and Training
* Requirements and Simulation
* Requirements and Autonomic Systems
* Requirements Reuse


Authors are invited to submit original papers in all areas of Requirement

The program committee will blindly review submissions to that track.
The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the
self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind
review. The paper should not exceed 6 pages in ACM format.
Please note that the maximum page length for the conference is 6 pages
(without extra-fee), 8 is the maximum (with extra-fee).

Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper
formats, such as US letter and A4. Papers should not be submitted to
more than one ACM-SAC track.

Paper submissions should be done electronically through the website
at www.softconf.com/c/sac2014/. Further information may be found at:
