**EXTENSION**: Deadline April 30th - Poster and Tool Demo at RE Conference

**Please distribute in your mailing list and research group!**

The 23rd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'15) continues the effort of the RE series by holding a posters & demos session to promote interaction and discussion among conference participants.

The intention is for conference participants to be able to mingle and interact with a variety of poster presenters, tool demonstrators, practitioners of techniques, and producers of artifacts.


We invite submissions of high-quality extended abstracts for posters and tool demos. We particularly encourage submissions related to the conference topics: posters and demos about massive scale Requirements Engineering. However, contributions related to all facets of requirements engineering are also welcome.

Posters may present late-breaking research or work in progress. A poster can help attract interest and give a rapid overview of what your research is all about. Demos provide the opportunity to showcase any innovative tools or research prototypes.

At the conference, the work described in the extended abstract will be presented as a poster or as a demo. We seek demos that explicitly give the audience the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with these technologies or which demonstrate interactively how a requirements engineering tool, method or technique can be applied (e.g., participants may try out the tools in an experiment-like and role-playing setting).

We particularly encourage the submission of posters or demos that are augmented with:

A live demo of proposed requirements engineering tools;
Video samples from industrial or educational application of requirements engineering techniques;
Games exploring the main concepts of the requirement engineering tool, method, or technique; or
Examples of the use of rich media in requirements engineering, including requirements visualizations, multimedia requirements documents, scenarios, storyboards, and vision/concept materials.

Dates: 24-28 August 2015                
Location:  Ottawa, Canada
Website:  http://re15.org/pages/submission/posters_tooldemos/

Poster authors are invited to submit original extended abstracts describing work and results that have not been submitted for review or publication elsewhere. Extended abstracts for demos should describe tools, techniques, or methods for requirements engineering, including references, contributions, and how the work relates to other industrial or research efforts. Extended abstracts may include a small number of references, or one or two helpful figures.


Extended abstracts for both posters and demos must be written in English, not exceed 2 pages, and conform to the IEEE formatting instructions.

An attachment with a maximum of 2 additional pages must be included in the submission. The attachment must clearly state how the work described in the extended abstract is to be presented at the conference, emphasizing interaction potential and explaining how an engaging participant experience will be achieved. The attachment may contain images of screenshots, should include an email address, and could include a URL leading to more information about the work, e.g., a preliminary version of the video for a poster or demo.

The extended abstract and its attachment as one file in PDF format via EasyChair:  https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=23222493.4V8j2gOAnX6tjYgB;timeout=1

Accepted Posters and Demos

Accepted posters and demos will be given space in an exhibit area as well as dedicated time slots in the main conference program. Authors will have designated hours during which they are expected to be at their assigned space to present their work. Printed posters must be brought on-site to the conference. Note that the maximum size of a poster is A0. Videos and demos for presentations and all required hardware and software must be brought on-site to the conference.

Each accepted poster and demo will be published in the RE'15 proceedings as a 2-page extended abstract. You will receive an IEEE author kit with instructions on how to submit the final camera-ready version of your extended abstract. At least one author must register for the conference. Failure to register to the conference and present the poster or demo at the conference will result in the removal of the extended abstract from the RE'15 proceedings; more specifically, it will not appear in the IEEE Digital Library.

Additional material is required to advertise posters and demos on the conference website. Authors of accepted posters or demos are strongly encouraged to summarize their presented work in an up to 1-minute video clip aimed at piquing the interest of conference participants. Videos with sound should use subtitles in English, to facilitate silent viewing. A URL leading to this additional material is to be sent by email to the Posters and Demos chairs at least two weeks before the conference.
