[PVS] RE'09 Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals


17th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'09)
31 August - 4 September 2009, Atlanta, Georgia, USA


* Workshop and tutorial proposals due: March 9th, 2009.
* Workshop notifications: March 27th, 2009.
* Tutorial notifications: April 21st, 2009.


A series of workshops will be held in conjunction with RE'09 to encourage the exchange of ideas between academia, industry, and government participants. Workshops will be held on Monday, 31st August, and Tuesday, 1st September.

Workshop topics should be in line with the conference topics. Proposals should clearly state the topic and overall objectives of the workshop and should include short curriculum vitae of the proposed organizers.
We are particularly interested in workshop proposals that cover topics that may have controversial viewpoints or are new to the requirements engineering field, where focused dialogue among participants may lead to interesting follow-on research, empirical investigations or industrial practice improvement.

RE'09 Workshop Proposal Guidelines
All workshop proposals are expected to be approximately 2-4 pages in length and should contain the following information.

1) Objective of workshop
-- 2-3 sentences about the topic and objectives. (Note: If your workshop is accepted then this description will be used as early publicity for the workshop).
-- A more detailed discussion of the anticipated outcomes of the workshop (e.g., open research problems to pursue, validation objectives, empirical studies etc.)?

2) Targeted attendance
-- What type of background should the workshop attendees have?
-- What mix of industry and research participants is being sought?
-- What is the cap (max number of attendees) for the workshop?
-- Is the workshop open to the public or by invitation only?

3) Workshop paper format and evaluation
-- What type of papers are being solicited for the workshop (length, position, etc.)?
-- What type of evaluation process will be used (who will review the papers, how large will the PC be)?
-- We intend to publish workshop proceedings in the IEEE digital library. If you wish to follow a different publishing plan, then describe how you intend to disseminate workshop proceedings.

4) Workshop format
-- What will be the format for the workshop (e.g., paper presentations, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, combination thereof)?

5) Duration
-- 1 or 2 day?

6) History of the workshop
-- Have you offered this workshop before? If so, please provide a history of the venues, dates, and approximate attendance numbers.

7) Workshop proposer(s) background(s)
-- Brief bio of principal proposer(s) (Workshop chair or co-chairs)
-- List of workshop organizers (name, affiliation)

RE'09 Workshop Evaluation Criteria
Proposals will be evaluated by three members of our workshop committee based on the following criteria:
-- Relevance to requirements engineering and topics targeted for RE'09
-- Potential for attracting sufficient number of participants
-- Experience of proposer(s)

RE'09 Workshop Committee

Send RE'09 Workshop Proposals To...

All proposals should be sent (in PDF format) to Jane Cleland-Huang (jhuang@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) and Marjo Kauppinen (marjo.kauppinen@xxxxxx).


RE'09 is seeking proposals for full-day (6-hour) and half-day (3-hour) tutorials to be offered in conjunction with the RE'09 conference. The tutorial program provides conference participants the opportunity to complement the scientific program with an in depth exploration of requirements engineering topics; to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills; and to learn from some of the leaders in the field. A tutorial is a particularly effective mechanism for technology transfer, and we encourage proposals for tutorials targeted to practitioners seeking to improve their requirements engineering skills.
RE'09 encourages proposals for tutorials that have the potential to actively engage the participants through problem-solving group exercises or other creative alternatives to traditional lecture-only tutorials. Proposals for topics addressing the RE'09 theme about dealing with our increasing dependence on software intensive systems will be particularly welcome.

RE'09 Tutorial Proposal Guidelines
Tutorial proposals should be written in English and must include:
-- title,
-- abstract,
-- intended audience,
-- the name of each instructor,
-- brief biographical sketch for each instructor,
-- proposed length: half day, full day, or both,
-- an outline of topics for each proposed length, and
-- a description of why we should offer your tutorial, e.g., because it addresses the theme, etc.

A sample of presentation material, e.g., slides, is strongly encouraged as a supplement to the proposal, but the size of this supplement must not exceed five printed pages.
Please indicate whether the proposed tutorial has been given previously, and if so, where, when, and the approximate audience size and background of previous participants.

RE'09 Tutorial Evaluation Criteria
Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of anticipated interest and benefit to RE'09 participants. Tutorials may cover any topic of significant interest to participants including:
-- describing promising research results in greater depth than possible in a paper session,
-- teaching methods that are ready for practical application, and
-- teaching methods that have been used in practice and that can be applied immediately.

Send RE'09 Tutorial Proposals To...
Proposals of of up to 4 pages, not including the sample slides, can be submitted electronically as a single ASCII TXT file or PDF file to the RE'09 Tutorials Chair, Daniel Berry at dberry@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Proposals in other less portable formats, e.g., HTML, Word, RTF, etc. will not be looked at; the Tutorial Chair is tired of the extra work involved to view these other formats. If you do not get an acknowledgement from the Tutorial Chair within 24 hours, send him a simple text-only message telling him to look in his spam archive for your submission.
