The RE’11 - 19th IEEE International Conference on Requirements Engineering tutorial program will highlight tutorials on a variety of requirements-related topics of interest to industry, academia, and government to help attendees increase their knowledge, skills and awareness of established and emerging requirements engineering practices. Tutorial attendees can expect to leave a tutorial with new ideas and skills applicable to their profession or research area.

We solicit proposals for full day (7-hour) or half-day (3.5 hour) tutorials. In addition to the topics below, we welcome proposals on any topic in requirements engineering and business requirements analysis. For further information, please contact one of the RE’11 tutorial chairs:

Dr. Luisa Mich

Dr. Travis Breaux

  • Plans for promoting the tutorial.

We strongly encourage each proposal to include sample presentation materials, but this supplemental material must not exceed an additional 5 pages.

Sample Topics of Interest

  • Requirements elicitation, analysis, documentation, validation and verification
  • Requirements specification languages, methods, processes and tools
  • Requirements management, traceability, viewpoints, prioritization and negotiation
  • Modeling of requirements, goals and domains
  • Formal analysis and verification
  • Prototyping, simulation and animation
  • Evolution of requirements over time, product families and variability
  • Relating requirements to business goals, architecture and testing
  • Social, cultural, global, personal and cognitive factors
  • Domain-specific problems, experiences and solutions
  • Requirements in service-oriented environments
  • Software product management (incl. topics such as requirements valuation, requirements for product lines, release planning, road-mapping, product life-cycle management as it pertains to requirements, and market focus).

Also of interest are special topics related to the conference theme: requirements in motion – a world where change has become the only constant, requirements evolve continuously and inevitably.
