Call for Workshops and Tutorials
The 23rd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'15)
Ottawa, Canada, August 24-28, 2015
We invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 23rd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'15) that will take place in Ottawa, Canada during August 24-28, 2015.
RE'15 Workshops will facilitate the exchange of new ideas in all areas related to requirements engineering research and practice. A variety of formats can be considered, ranging from traditional research paper presentations to extremely interactive and participatory sessions. We particularly invite proposals that cover controversial viewpoints, emerging technology drivers or transformative ideas aimed at changing basic assumptions about requirements engineering, where a focused dialogue among participants may lead to interesting follow-on research, empirical investigations or industrial practice improvement.
RE Workshop organizers are responsible for establishing a program committee, collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time, and ensuring a transparent and fair selection process, organizing selected papers into sessions, and assigning session chairs. An RE workshop is either a full day, or a two days event, and takes place on August 24, 2015 (Monday) and August 25 (Tuesday), the first two days of RE'?'15.
Important dates for RE'15 workshops:
* Jan. 26, 2015: Workshop Proposal submissions due
* Feb. 20, 2015: Workshop Proposal notification
* Aug. 24-25, 2015: Workshops day
(All Deadlines are 23:59 Baker Island Time.)
Please see the formatting and submission guidelines below when preparing a proposal.
Formatting Guidelines: Workshop proposals must not exceed four pages in length, and must be submitted electronically in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).
Proposals should contain the following eight sections as titled and answer these questions clearly:
1. Motivation and Objectives
* 2-3 sentences with the motivation and objectives of the workshop topic. If your workshop is accepted then this description will be used as early publicity for the workshop.
* A short paragraph detailing the anticipated outcomes of the workshop (e.g., open research problems to pursue, validation objectives, empirical studies etc.).
2. Format and Services
* What will be the format for the workshop, e.g., paper presentations, keynotes, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, combination thereof? There are four 1.5-hours sessions in a typical full day workshop.
* How many days? (1 or 2)
* What special services are needed? Standard services include a room, projector and a student volunteer to assist with the room.
3. Target Audience
* What type of background should the workshop attendees have?
* What mix of industry and research participants is being sought?
* What is the range of attendees desired for the workshop (minimum and maximum)?
* Is the workshop open to the public or by invitation only?
* What type of evaluation process will be used to decide accepted papers?
* How many people will be on the program committee? Please list names of PC members if the committee has been tentatively invited.
* Workshop proceedings will be published in the IEEE Digital Library. If you wish to use a different publishing plan, then describe how you intend to disseminate workshop proceedings.
5. Workshop History
* Have you offered this workshop before? If so, please provide a history of the venues, dates, and approximate attendance numbers.
6. Organizers' Bios
* Please provide a brief 2-3-sentence biography for each of the workshop organizers that highlight their qualifications with respect to the workshop. Mention also the experience in organizing scientific events and workshops in particular.
Please submit your workshop proposal in PDF format via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=re15workshops.)
All workshop proposals will be reviewed by three members of the Workshop Selection Committee. Acceptance will be based on:
* Evaluation of the workshop's potential to advance the state of requirements engineering research and/or practice
* Relevance to requirements engineering and topics targeted for RE'15
* Potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants
* Organizers ability to lead a successful workshop
All participants, including workshop organizers and invited speakers, must pay registration fees for the workshop.

Call for Tutorials
The 23rd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'15) tutorial program will highlight tutorials on a variety of requirements-related topics of interest to industry, academic, and government to help attendees increase their knowledge, skills, and awareness of established and emerging requirements engineering practices. Tutorial attendees can expect to leave a tutorial with new ideas and skills applicable to their profession or research area.
We invite you to submit proposals for full day (7-hour) or half-day (3.5-hour) tutorials. In addition to the topics listed below, we welcome proposals on any topic in requirements engineering and business requirements analysis.
Please see the formatting and submission guidelines below when preparing a proposal.
Proposers should send an e-mail to both RE'15 Tutorial Co-Chairs, Anna Perini and Michael C. Panis, no later than Monday, February 16, 2015, to declare their intent to submit a proposal.
