                                                                REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERING

                                An IEEE Software Technology Transfer Conference
                                April 15-18, 1996, Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society - Technical Council on Software Engineering
In Cooperation with Fujitsu and MCI

ICRE '96 is the second in a biennial series of conferences aimed at
bringing together practitioners and researchers to discuss software
requirements engineering related problems and results. Further, as a
technology transfer conference, it is designed to provide (1) practitioners
with an evaluation of promising requirements research and practice, and
(2) researchers with an exposure to real-world requirements problems.

Authors are invited to submit papers concerned with requirements theory
and/or practice.

- RESEARCH PAPERS should describe work that advances the
state-of-the-art of requirements technology and demonstrates the
applicability of the proposed solution to a realistic requirements problem.

- EXPERIENCE PAPERS should reflect on the nature of, and solutions to
real-world requirements problems.

While the distinction between research and experience papers is not
absolute, authors are encouraged to focus on one of these two aspects as
the primary theme of their contribution. In both cases, practical and
near-term applicability must be emphasized. Topics include, but are not
limited to:

- Requirements problems, techniques & tools
- Requirements definition, analysis & validation
- Defining the system-human interface requirements
- Prototyping, animation & visualization of requirements
- Business process relationship to system requirements
- Non-linear & heterogeneous requirements descriptions
- Supporting requirements elicitation & evolution
- Requirements engineering as a group activity
- Requirements engineering in legacy system migration
- Role of software architecture in requirements
- Advances in formal methods & their practical use
- Lessons from domain-specific requirements practices
- Requirements-based system testing
- Role of requirements standards

Special consideration will be given to promising experience papers. These
papers should present evidence to validate, modify or disprove current
views on the effectiveness of requirements technology in practice.
Practitioners who wish assistance in sharing their experiences may submit a
1-3 page, double-spaced, extended abstract to the program chair by June 2,
1995. The abstract should summarize problems addressed, lessons learned,
and recommendations proposed.The program committee will provide feedback
within six weeks of this submission to assist the author(s) in writing the
full length paper.

Proposals that focus on requirements engineering controversies are
encouraged, especially those that highlight the gulf between requirements
research and practice. Preference will be given to panels that consist of
members who have a significant presence in the field and present a
diversity of views on the topic chosen. Proposals should include the
title, a brief description of issues to be debated, the names of
prospective panel members, and a description of their roles.

Full length papers are limited to 6000 words, typed double spaced. They
should include a short (150 words) abstract, list of descriptive keywords,
specification of submission type (research/experience) and complete contact
information for the lead author. Authors should send six copies of their
abstracts, papers and panel proposals, in English, to one of the program
