Tutorial 1: Writing Effective Requirements
Presenter: Michael C. Panis (Teradyne, Inc.)
Abstract: even organizations that apply requirements engineering processes do not always provide the necessary training to employees so that they can clearly communicate requirements. This tutorial focuses on some of the techniques and skills necessary to ensure written requirements will be interpreted as intended.
Duration: 5 hours
Date: Tuesday, August 16, 2022 (full-day)
Tutorial 2: NLP for RE
Abstract: the NLP for RE tutorial aims to provide the basics of how NLP (Natural Language Processing) could be used to process data for automation. It considers various instances that could be used to get started with applied NLP inclusive of data gathering, preprocessing, modeling and evaluation. We teach you how to apply various NLP techniques to a data set you bring with you or example systems we have as a backup. The take-aways from the tutorial are 1) How to gather data from public repositories such as utilizing REST-API’s, 2) Pre-processing requirements utilizing various NLP techniques 3) Develop a classification ML model for requirement dependencies.
Duration: 3 hours
Date: This tutorial is asynchronous and flexible. Gouri will organize a live QA on Monday, August 15, 2022 9.00pm to midnight, Melbourne time (UTC +10).
Tutorial 3: Requirements Elicitation Interviews: a Hands-on Tutorial with the SaPeer Method
Abstract: Requirements elicitation interviews are the most commonly used elicitation technique. Thus, they are a fundamental pillar for the quality of software, since misunderstandings and omissions in this phase could be transferred to the requirements specification, the design, and even the final product, before being detected. Given the importance of elicitation interviews, approaches have been proposed to improve their quality. One of the approaches, called SaPeer (Self-Assessment and Peer Review), argues on the importance of reviewing requirements elicitation interviews for mistakes, as done for other requirements artefacts. In this tutorial, participants will learn the SaPeer method, and how to apply it for teaching interviews to students. Furthermore, they will learn how to conduct requirements elicitation interviews, and the typical mistakes to avoid. They will have the possibility to experience a requirements elicitation interview themselves, and assess the quality of their own interview. The tutorial is oriented to young researchers who want to learn the art of interviewing, and to educators, who will learn an effective method to teach this art.
Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Date: Monday, August 15, 2002, 7pm to 9.20pm, Melbourne time (UTC +10)
