The 29th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’21) will continue the successful tutorial program of the RE conference series. RE’21 tutorials will focus on a variety of requirements-related topics of interest to industry, academia, and government.
We invite you to submit proposals for full-day ( approx. 7-hour) or half-day (approx. 3.5-hour) tutorials.

Call for Tutorial Proposals

We welcome tutorial proposals related to requirements engineering and business requirements analysis, including but not limited to the topics below:

Requirements elicitation, analysis, documentation, verification, and validation
Requirements management, traceability, viewpoints, prioritization, and negotiation
Evolution of requirements over time and across product families
Requirements specification languages, methods, processes, and tools

Relating requirements to business goals, architecture, design, implementation, and testing
Social, cultural, global, personal, and cognitive factors
Domain-specific problems, experiences, and solutions
Managing requirements-related complexity (e.g., problem complexity, solution complexity, organizational complexity, etc.)
Requirements engineering as part of agile development processes
Requirements engineering for service-oriented and cloud/fog computing systems
Requirements related to safety, reliability, security, privacy and digital forensics
Requirements engineering for Big Data / Machine-Learning / AI systems
Data mining for requirements engineering
Requirements engineering for sustainability
Distributed requirements engineering

The presenters should be prepared to deliver the tutorial online, following the RE21 guidelines. On-site tutorial delivery may also be possible, depending on the situation of the pandemic in September 2021

Tutorial Proposal Evaluation Criteria

Evaluation criteria include the quality of the proposal, the tutorial’s anticipated benefit for prospective participants, its fit within the program as a whole, and the qualification and experience of the presenter(s).

Tutorial proposals should not exceed two pages (not counting appendices) and must be submitted electronically as PDF. Tutorial proposals should contain the following information:

Title and Abstract:
The abstract should be between 140 and 250 words. If the proposal is accepted, the title and abstract will appear in advertisements and on the conference website.

Motivation and Objectives:
2-3 sentences describing the motivation for why this topic is relevant to the main conference. If your tutorial has particular applicability to practitioners from industry, describe this relevance in another 2-3 sentences. If your tutorial is accepted, then this description will be used as early publicity for the tutorial.

Full-day (6-hour) or half-day (3-hour).

Outline of Topics:
Envision topics (e.g., in the form of a table of contents of the tutorial) Please indicate the number and type of interactive activities (such as exercises) for tutorial attendees and motivation of why such activities have been chosen.

Target Audience:
What type of background should the tutorial attendees have? What is the envisioned number of attendees desired for the tutorial (minimum and maximum)?

Tutorial History:
Have you offered this tutorial before? If so, please provide a history of the venues, dates, and approximate attendance numbers.

Presenters’ Bios:
Provide the name and a brief (2-3 sentence) biography for each of the tutorial presenters that highlights their qualifications with respect to the tutorial.

Plans for promoting the tutorial and attracting participants.

Provide two to four sample slides from the tutorial.
