The objective of the RE 2022 Posters and Tool Demonstrations Track is to demonstrate and discuss the very early methods and new or mature tools that advance RE research and practice. This is a highly interactive track, which gives an opportunity to researchers and practitioners to practically demonstrate and try out their methods and tools with the attendees.

**NEW THIS YEAR** The Posters and Tool Demonstrations Track welcomes the addition of a new Student Research Competition! Students can submit a poster and abstract of their original research to be selected for the competition and evaluated by our judges at RE'22!

Call for Posters & Tool Demos

Posters may present late-breaking research or work in progress. A poster can help attract interest and give a rapid overview of what your research is all about. Submissions can focus on any area in the scope of the RE conference. Evaluation criteria include clarity of the submission, comparison to the state-of-the-art, expected interest to the conference attendees, as well as novelty and feasibility of the idea.

We seek posters & demos that explicitly give the audience the opportunity to gain interactive experience on how a requirements engineering tool, method or technique can be applied.
We welcome submissions that incorporate engaging media, including (but not limited to) for instance:
A hands on (online) live demo of proposed requirements engineering tools for attendees to try out;
Video samples from the industrial or educational application of requirements engineering techniques; Games exploring the main concepts of the requirement engineering tool, method, or technique; or
Examples of the use of rich media in requirements engineering, including requirements visualizations,
Multimedia requirements documents, scenarios, storyboards, and concept materials.

Submission:

Poster and Tool Demo authors are invited to submit an original extended abstract (max 2 pages) that has not been submitted for review or publication elsewhere. The submissions must convey the following: the intended users of the tool/method; the RE challenge addressed; the methodology (and tool) that underpins it; any method validation or tool evaluation pilots/studies conducted to date, and how the work relates to other industrial or research efforts.
Additionally, Tool Demo submissions are required to submit a link to a 5-minutes video demonstration of the tool as described in the extended abstract. Upload the video to any publicly accessible platform (e.g., Youtube or Vimeo) and add the link at the end of your 2-page abstract, as well as in the ‘Abstract’ field on Easychair.

Note: this video submission replaces the annex required in previous years.

Submission Instructions in a Nutshell:

Submit an Extended Abstract (and optional Video) by May 19th, 2022
Submissions are SINGLE-Blind
Submissions must be English, in IEEE format
Submit via EasyChair (select RE’22 Poster/Tool Demos track, then Poster or Demo topic)

Student Research Competition

The RE Student Research Competition will consist of two categories of competition, graduate (i.e., Master or PhD) and undergraduate (i.e., Bachelor’s students), with winners chosen based on judging during the conference. A submission to the Student Research Competition should describe recently completed or ongoing student research in any area of Requirements Engineering. All graduate submissions must represent a student’s individual research contribution—neither supervisors or other students are allowed as co-authors. Undergraduate submissions may represent individual or team research contributions. The author submitting the abstract must still be a student at the time the abstract is due. A student’s status (undergraduate or graduate) is determined based on their registration status as of the abstract submission deadline.

Submission:

Students will submit an abstract of at most 250 words and a draft of their associated research poster, which will be reviewed to determine acceptance into the competition at RE. If accepted, an abstract of 250 words will be published in the conference proceedings.

Each submission should include the author’s name, affiliation, and email address; research advisor’s name; category (undergraduate or graduate); research title; and an abstract (max 250 words).

All posters this year will only be online and do not need to be printed. Poster submissions must be a landscape poster using a 3x4 ratio. We recommend a 3’ x 4’ or 36” x 48” poster size. The poster submission should be max 150 MB, saved as PDF. Students may want to consider including the following information on the poster:

Problem and Motivation : This section should clearly state the problem being addressed and explain the reasons for seeking a solution to this problem.

Background and Related Work : This section should describe the specialized (but pertinent) background necessary to appreciate the work. Include references to the literature where appropriate, and briefly explain where your work departs from that done by others.

Approach and Uniqueness : This section should describe your approach in attacking the problem and should clearly state how your approach is novel.

Results and Contributions : This section should clearly show how the results of your work contribute to requirements engineering and should explain the significance of those results.

Your submission should be uploaded using EasyChair, the online submission system.

Selection Process

No more than three research projects will be accepted from a single institution and no more than two of those can be in a single category (graduate and undergraduate). Institutions are determined by the location of the research advisor. Submissions for the research competition should describe the results of recently completed or ongoing requirements engineering research conducted primarily by students.

At the Conference

Judges will include researchers and practitioners attending the RE conference. Students’ research will be evaluated on the quality and significance of the work, and the quality and clarity of both an oral and visual presentation.

At RE, the first round of the competition evaluates the research during a poster presentation. Those students who are selected by the judges to advance will present their poster as part of the research track on the final day of the conference. The top winners in each categories as determined by the judges’ evaluation, will receive the Best Poster award.

By RE policy, at least one student author is required to register (as a student) and attend in order to present the poster.
