Call for Industry Contributions

The IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’11) is the premier international forum for researchers, educators, industrial practitioners, and students to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and concerns in the field of requirements engineering.

As industrial contributor you will benefit from new impulses by presenting and discussing how to implement requirements engineering practices. You will have the opportunity to share interests and expectations to influence the development of the field. RE’11 will give you the opportunity to join the global network of requirements engineering experts and industrials.

Topics of Interest

Contributions addressing all aspects of requirements engineering and business analysis in industrial, governmental, or any practical context are welcome. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Pragmatic requirements engineering: process efficiency, good-enough requirements, agile and lean approaches
  • Collaboration with stakeholders: stakeholder management, creativity, requirements elicitation and negotiation
  • Large-scale requirements engineering: complex systems, product lines, value chains, software ecosystems
  • Requirements specification: natural language, model-driven approaches, formal techniques
  • Software product management: innovation, market-driven requirements engineering, product planning
  • Global requirements engineering: dealing with distance, time, and cultural differences
  • Performance improvement: best practices, measurement, process development
  • Industry and research collaboration: learning from practice, training practitioners, technology transfer
  • Tools for requirements engineering: requirements modeling, requirements management, social networks


We invite original submissions of high quality papers in two categories:

  • Problem statements present problems or challenges encountered in practice.
  • Experience reports present successes or failures encountered in practice.

Papers can be submitted in two formats:

  • Full papers (up to 6 pages) will appear in the IEEE digital library and be presented by the authors.
  • Short papers (up to 2 pages) will appear in locally printed proceedings and be presented by the authors.

Longer papers can be submitted in the research track (research paper criteria apply). A mentoring program is available.

Submission Instructions

Your paper must be formatted according to the IEEE CPS formatting instructions. You find more information about this format here:


Any inquiries regarding the industry track can be directed to the chair of the industry track: Samuel Fricker.
