RE2021
Mon 20 - Fri 24 September 2021
The 29th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’21) is the premier international forum for industrial practitioners, researchers, educators, and students for discussing the most recent innovations, experiences, and concerns in the discipline of Requirements Engineering. The RE’21 industry track will feature full industry papers, presentation-only contributions, invited presentations, and interactive formats.

 

We invite both practitioners and researchers with significant industry experience to submit original contributions reporting on requirements engineering challenges and innovations within industrial, government, and open-source settings.

 

Full industry papers may be up to 10 pages long, plus 1 additional page for references, and will be peer-reviewed. The accepted papers will be included in the IEEE proceedings for the conference and presented at RE’21.

 

Presentation-only submissions recognize that practitioners often perform innovative work that would be valuable to share but do not publish it in paper form. We, therefore, accept presentations of strong work performed in the industry at RE’21 based on the submission of a 300-words extended abstract and draft slides (full paper not necessary). These presentations will not be eligible for publication in the conference proceedings.

 

RE’21 will provide you with an opportunity to share interests and discuss ideas with fellow practitioners and researchers. You will join the global network of requirements engineering experts across industry and academia and have a chance to influence the development of the field.

Call for Papers

The industry track accepts the following types of industrial contributions:

Problem statement papers describe a significant challenge that has been encountered in industry and has not been satisfactorily solved. Vision papers propose a solution and a research or innovation roadmap for addressing a significant challenge experienced in the industry. Experience report papers report on the innovative application of a concept, method, or framework in one or several interesting industrial contexts, including the lessons learned. As mentioned above, the track welcomes full industry papers and presentation-only submissions.

 

New in RE 2021!

RE 2021's Industrial Innovation Track is keen to receive your reflections about the state of RE practice. We invite "Reflection" submissions in both the presentation-only and full-paper categories. While Reflection submissions are not limited to the past authors of the RE Industry and Industrial Innovation tracks, we have a particular interest in hearing from this group of authors. Reflection submissions can, for example, reflect on (i) how the authors' previously published work has evolved in an industrial context, (ii) whether such work has seen wider industrial adoption since it was published, and (iii) how the observations in such work have changed due to additional insights.
 
The RE 2021's Industrial Innovation Track is equally keen to hear from RE practitioners, be those veteran or new authors, about how they have been adapting their requirements elicitation, prioritization, validation and verification activities to the circumstances posed by the pandemic. Obviously, for COVID-related reflection submissions, the criterion about reflecting vis-a-vis previously published work does not apply. While eagerly looking forward to a post-pandemic world, we believe there is a lot to be learned from this ongoing crisis. While memories are still fresh, we would like this knowledge to be disseminated to the RE community and documented as much as possible. If you have a nice story to tell about how you are doing RE during COVID, we are all ears!

Guidelines for Full Industry Papers

Industry papers must be based on a strong connection to the industrial context. They should adhere to the following guidelines.

 

Clearly describe the context of the problem and why a practical solution is important to the industry. Indicate who has been impacted, for how long time, how new the problem is, and what the trigger of the problem is.

 

Identify prior work. You are not expected to have performed a systematic literature review as you would for the research track. However, identify if you are applying your own or someone else’s previously published ideas. Cite this related work.
 
Explain what you did and the results you have obtained. What were the environment and the problem that you have investigated? How did you develop and apply any solutions? What were the results, impact, and lessons learned? Provide concise descriptions and rationales for your choices.
 
Describe your findings with supporting data, and do not base your arguments on just your personal opinion or conjecture. Industry track papers may be based on topics for which there was originally no expectation of writing a paper and consequently no controlled data gathering. Use the data you have and collect inputs and opinions from those who were involved.
 
Discuss what makes your contribution innovative. significant, and useful for industry. To explain what is new, compare your results with relevant alternatives. If the findings were negative, provide a thorough discussion of the potential causes of failure, and ideally a perspective on how to solve them.

What is the Difference between Research and Industry Track Papers?

Authors sometimes ask for guidance as to the track to which they should submit their paper.

Both Research and Industry Track papers are expected to meet the same high standards required by IEEE for published papers, but they are evaluated using different criteria. To ensure its best chance for acceptance, a paper must be submitted to the appropriate track. The following examples are by no means exhaustive, but shall provide

Example papers that should be submitted to the Research Track

  • A review of previous research or literature on a given topic
  • A proposed new technique that industry could employ in the future, based on interviews with a company’s employees and analysis of data
  • A proposed new technique that industry could employ in the future, based on a trial in an industrial setting with simulated data
  • An exploration of the history, successes, and challenges of requirements related practices and/or vision of future directions based on the author’s work with practitioners

Example papers that could be submitted to the Research or Industry Track

  • An analysis of the state of the art across multiple companies
  • A description of the practices of a particular company by an employee or non-employee (e.g. a consultant or independent researcher)

Example papers that should be submitted to the Industry Track

  • A proposed new technique that industry could employ in the future, based on a practitioner’s work experience
  • A proposed new technique that industry could employ in the future, based on a trial in an industrial setting performed by practitioners doing their daily work
  • The deployment of an existing or new technique to practitioners doing their daily work, regardless of failure or success
  • An exploration of the history, successes, and challenges of requirements related practices and/or vision of future directions based on the author’s work as a practitioner

Topics of Interest

Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

Innovation with Requirements Engineering
