REFSQ’17 -- 23rd International Working Conference on
Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality

February 27 - March 2, 2017, Essen, Germany



REFSQ 2017 will feature presentations of novel ideas and techniques that 
enhance the quality of RE’s products and processes, reflections on 
current research and industrial RE practices, as well as new views on 
RE. Researchers and practitioners will present original work from 
(amongst others) RE, software engineering, information systems, service 
science, embedded systems, and product management fields.

RE methods, tools and processes are nowadays expected to support 
engineering diverse types of systems of different scale and complexity 
and are applied in diverse domains. The special theme of REFSQ’17 is "My 
RE" to emphasize an important issue: how can RE evolve to deal with this 
diversity, still keeping its ultimate objective: understanding what is 
the right software system and helping developing it in the right way.
