*Call for Papers*

*1st Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Self-adaptive and Autonomous
Systems (RESA) to be held on April 7th 2014 in conjunction with REFSQ 2014
(April 07-10), in Essen, Germany*


The RESA workshop will look at the research issues related to software
systems that are aware and even reason about their requirements and goals
at runtime. Such capabilities would bring benefits not just for the case of
self-adaptive and autonomous systems but would also help in the development
of self-explaining systems, and in testing and debugging. In particular,
the workshop aims to:

   - Combine research ideas from requirements engineering, requirements
   monitoring, computational reflection, model-driven engineering, and
   self-adaptive, autonomic, and self-aware systems.
   - Provide a "state-of-the-research" assessment expressed in terms of
   research issues, challenges, and achievements. This assessment can be used
   to guide research in the area for both academia and industry.
   - Build a network of researchers in RE for Self-adaptive Systems.
   - Plan and promote further events on this emerging area.

RESA'14 will be held in Essen, Germany, as one of the workshops of the 20th
International Working Conference on Requirements Engineering: Foundation
for Software Quality (REFSQ  2014).

*Important Dates*

Submission deadline:                   January 15, 2014

Author Notification:                      February 15, 2014

Camera Ready Copy:                   March 12, 2014

Workshop:                                   April 7th, 2014

*List of topics*

The research topics we will aim to discuss include:

-      Representation of Runtime Requirements (RR) for self-adaptive and
autonomous systems

-      Reasoning over runtime requirements

-      Requirements-awareness

-      The role of uncertainty

-      Computational reflection and runtime requirements

-      The relationships between requirements models at different phases of
the SE lifecycle

-      The relationship of RR to other SE phases

-      Runtime requirements’ traceability

-      Methodologies incorporating requirements-awareness and RR

-      Requirements monitoring

-      Diagnosis of railed requirements (including self-explaining systems)

*Publications and Format of Papers*

The RESA 2014 proceedings will be published in CEUR-WS (www.ceur-ws.org).

Submissions should be in PDF, on A4 page size and formatted in LNCS style.
See Springer’s Information for LNCS Authors for details (notice that for
the submission, only the instructions about the layout of the paper itself
are relevant – the copyright form etc. is only needed for the camera-ready
version, in the event of your paper’s acceptance).

We invite original submissions as either full papers (13-15 pages) and
short/position/vision papers (6-8 pages).


Papers should be submitted using EasyChair at

*Selection process*

The selection of papers will be based on their relevance to the workshop,
research rigour, innovation, potential for industrial applicability, and
quality of writing. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three (3)
reviewers, and authors will be notified about acceptance before the REFSQ
2014 early registration deadline.

The workshop co-chairs will not submit papers of their own.
