RE’22 workshops provide opportunities for small-group discussions on topics in requirements engineering research and practice. Workshops also provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at an early stage, before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication.

Call for Workshop Proposals


Goal and Scope

We invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 30th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’22). RE is the premier forum for presenting and discussing requirements engineering research and practice. Due to COVID-19, all workshops will be virtual events.

RE’22 workshops will allow participants to exchange new ideas in all areas related to requirements engineering research and practice. A variety of workshop formats can be considered, ranging from traditional paper presentations and discussions to highly interactive and participatory sessions without formal paper presentations. Proposers are encouraged to consider topics aligned with the research themes of RE’22. We particularly invite workshop proposals that cover controversial viewpoints, emerging technology drivers or transformative ideas that have the potential to change basic assumptions about requirements engineering. Discussions at workshops may lead to interesting follow-up research, empirical investigations or improvement to industry practice.

An RE workshop can be a half-day, full-day or two-day event and will take place on the first two days of RE’22 (organizers need to consider time zones, e.g., a workshop on August 15, 2022 in Melbourne may be August 14 elsewhere).

NEW: Local Workshops (Optional)

RE’22 supports locally organized hybrid workshops, i.e., workshops where organizers gather at a location of their choice with some of the participants (as a “local hub”) and allow remote participation for other attendees that are at different places (potentially anywhere in the world). Workshop organizers who would like to offer such an opportunity must describe their intended hybrid setting explicitly in their workshop proposal in a dedicated section (see below for details). Please note the following:

RE’22 will only provide very basic support for local workshops. Any local arrangements and costs (e.g., catering during breaks) are to be arranged (and covered) by the organizers.
Attendees of a local workshop (that are part of the “local hub”) must still register for the workshop via RE’22 (local organizers have to make sure that all attendees are officially registered).
collecting and evaluating submissions, and notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time,
Local workshops must be accessible to the rest of the world, hence organizers need to plan for remote access (what platform, communication tools, etc.) and different time zones.
Plans for the hybrid setting and how remote participation for any RE’22 participant is enabled must be explicitly explained in the proposal.
The workshop proposal and call for papers must specify the time of the workshop, so that remote participants know how times apply to their time zone.

Submission of Proposals

Workshop proposals must not exceed four pages and must be submitted as one PDF using the IEEE conference template. Proposals should contain the following sections:

Header: Workshop title and acronym, contact information for the workshop organizers (name, affiliation, email) and the main contact
Workshop Motivation and Objectives: This section should explain the motivation and objectives of the workshop and related topics. This section should clarify the relation between the workshop’s topic and the conference’s main theme and the anticipated outcomes of the workshop (e.g., open research problems to pursue, empirical studies, etc.). If your workshop is accepted, then this description will be used for early publicity for the workshop.
Target Audience: What type of background should the workshop attendees have? Will there be a mix of industry and academic participants? What is the expected number of participants (minimum and maximum)? Is the workshop open to the public or by invitation only?
Workshop Format: Will the workshop be a half-day workshop or a full-day workshop? What will be the format for the workshop, e.g., paper presentations, keynotes, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, a combination, etc.? What are the plans for facilitating discussions between participants? How will the organizers support an online or hybrid event if needed?
Paper solicitation and selection: How will submissions and participation be encouraged? How will papers be selected? How many people will be on the program committee? Please list the names of PC members if the committee has been tentatively invited.
Proceedings : How many and what type of papers will be solicited (number of pages and type: extended abstracts, position and/or research papers, etc.)? What type of evaluation process will be used to decide on accepted papers? As in previous years, we are planning to publish the workshop proceedings in the IEEE Digital Library as a separate volume of the conference proceedings. If you wish to use a different publishing plan, then describe how you intend to disseminate the workshop proceedings.
Workshop History : Have you offered this workshop before? If so, please provide a history of the venues, dates, approximate attendance numbers, and link to the website (if still available). Required Services: What special services are needed? For example, standard services may include a student volunteer.
Local workshop details (if applicable) : Are you planning to offer a local workshop? If so, discuss the details as outlined in the section “Local Workshop” above.
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.

Proposals must be submitted via the EasyChair submission page (select “RE’22 Workshops” track).

EnviRE - Environment-Driven Requirements Engineering

With the rising influence of AI-based systems, we believe it is important and timely for our community to revisit one of the RE cornerstones, “requirements are located in the environment”. In the days of AI, IoT, and cyber-physical systems, the environment, in which the software operates, becomes more open and evolves rapidly with stakeholders’ changing needs. This workshop is aimed at bringing the interested researchers and practitioners together, exchanging ideas and visions, building a shared and evolving dataset, and exploring a set of open problems to pursue in the years to come.

REWBAH - 3rd International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Well-Being, Aging, and Health

The Third International Workshop on REWBAH fosters discussion related to requirements engineering resulting from the need to build software systems that not only support healthcare, but also promote well-being, encourage patients and the population in general to live according to healthy lifestyle recommendations, and address the specific needs of an aging population. This multidisciplinary workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers from relevant disciplines. Among other objectives, REWBAH aims to i) develop RE approaches that support multiple perspectives of well-being, aging, and health; ii) develop methods for defining and monitoring requirements of systems and services that promote well-being or health; and iii) identify open research and industry challenges, as well as validation objectives for proposed solutions.

RE4ES - 2nd International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Explainable Systems

Explainability has become a hot topic and communities from different areas of knowledge (e.g., machine learning, hci, philosophy, psychology, cyber-physical and recommender systems) have been researching it actively. Yet, the requirements engineering (RE) research community seems to be less concerned with the issue. At the same time, our community is extremely rich in methods and techniques that facilitate software development. This would add a lot of value to the explainability research and also ensure that we develop such techniques in parallel to the needs of other communities. Based on this motivation, we want to offer a workshop with three objectives: advancing RE for explainable systems, community building, and interdisciplinary exchange.

CrowdRE'22 - 6th International Workshop on Crowd-Based Requirements Engineering

Traditional requirements engineering (RE) techniques have difficulties scaling up to settings with thousands up to millions of users of a (software) product. Now that these users can easily interact among themselves and with the development company, they form a large and heterogeneous group that can be denoted as a ‘crowd’. Researchers have identified several issues with applying RE in the new crowd paradigm. Methods and tools are being investigated, but we see the need for more tailored and holistic approaches, focusing on Crowd-Based Requirements Engineering. The International Workshop on Crowd-Based Requirements Engineering (CrowdRE) aims to attract papers with novel and innovative ideas on involving the crowd and collecting, harmonizing, analyzing, and interpreting their user feedback. In this regard, CrowdRE intends to facilitate interactive discussions between scientists and representatives of industry in order to analyze the state of the art and to inspire each other in ways to move forward together.

AIRE 2022 - 9th International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Requirements Engineering

The primary purpose of this workshop is to explore synergies between Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Requirements Engineering (RE) in order to identify complex RE problems that could benefit from the application of AI techniques, and the other way round. AIRE also aims to strengthen the links in the community and foster the communication between industry and academia, as well as between researchers in this field. In addition, this workshop aims to build and share standard datasets that can help the community develop state of the art systems for RE. These datasets can also be used to compare different systems and approaches as in other communities like Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Finally, the workshop aims to make researchers showcase and compare their work through informal tool demonstrations. This way, we can interactively compare the state of the art, understand research gaps, and inspire new work.

MoDRE - 12th International Model-Driven Requirements Engineering Workshop

The 12th International Model-Driven Requirements Engineering (MoDRE) workshop continues to provide a forum to discuss the challenges of Model-Driven Development (MDD) for Requirements Engineering (RE). Building on the interest of MDD for design and implementation, RE may benefit from MDD techniques when properly balancing flexibility for capturing varied user needs with formal rigidity required for model transformations as well as high-level abstraction with information richness. MoDRE seeks to explore those areas of RE that have not yet been formalized sufficiently to be incorporated into an MDD environment as well as how RE models can benefit from emerging topics in the model-driven community, such as flexible, collaborative, and AI-enabled modeling. We would like to explore how MoDRE can benefit from research methods and techniques used in other disciplines, such as sociology, as well as how MoDRE can help to ensure human values, ethics, sustainability, equality, and fairness in software systems. We look forward to identifying new challenges for MoDRE, discussing on-going work and potential solutions, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of MDD approaches for RE, fostering stimulating discussions on the topic, and providing opportunities to apply MDD approaches for RE.
