                                CALL FOR PAPERS
       The Third Edition of Requirements Engineering Track (RE-TRACK´10 )
    at The 25th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2010)
                              Sierre, Switzerland
                              March 22-26, 2010

For the past twenty-four 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 Third Edition of the Requirements Engineering Track (RE-Track'10)
is part of the SAC 2010, sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group
on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by  University of Applied
Sciences, Western Switzerland (HES-SO) and Ecole Polytechnique
Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Further details may be found
at: http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2010/.

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 process.

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

All deadlines will be strictly enforced.

September 8, 2009: Paper submissions (submission deadline is strict)
October 19, 2009: Author notification
November 2, 2009: Camera-Ready Copy
March 22-26, 2010: 25th ACM SAC, Sierre, Switzerland


Authors are invited to submit ORIGINAL and UNPUBLISHED 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
paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to
facilitate the double blind review. The paper should not exceed 5
pages in ACM format.
Please note that the maximum page length for the conference is 5 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
http://sac.cs.iupui.edu/SAC2010.Further information may be found at:
