THIRD IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERING

THEME : Putting Requirements Engineering to Practice

An IEEE Software Technology Transfer Conference

April 6-10, 1998, Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA


Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society - Technical Council on Software Engineering With Corporate
Support from Fujitsu and INCOSE


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

ICRE '98 with two pre-conference and two post-conference tutorials is the third 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. ICRE is the only conference to earn the designation "An IEEE Software Magazine Technology Transfer Conference " for meeting the stringent requirements concerning emphasis on technology transfer. Participants should leave the conference with unique understanding of (1) the challenges facing writers and maintainers of requirements documents for complex systems, (2) available short-term solutions to requirements problems, and (3) solutions that may be available in the future as well as pointers to short and long-term research directions.


Keynote Speakers


Edward Yourdon

Title: "Requirements Engineering for Y2000 Projects: Why Is It Harder Than It Seems?"

Gerald M. Weinberg

Title: "Experiencing Requirements"

Abstract:
This will be a chance to experience a requirements process in a new way, and to share experiences with the real requirements for a requirements process.

Biography:
Jerry Weinberg is the co-author (with Don Gause) of Exploring Requirements. He has written a number of other books on how people work and communicate.

Program


ICRE'98 Program includes papers on a wide range of requirements topics addressing theory and/or practice.

experience paper
evaluates the effectiveness of a requirements engineering technology, which may have begun as a research effort, in a real-world, industrial setting on non-trivial requirements engineering problems, and a
research paper
describes an innovative requirement engineering technology aimed at cracking previously unsolved problems in requirements engineering and demonstrates, perhaps by application to an exemplar, the usefulness of the technology in solving these problems.

The best papers in the conference will be considered for publication in IEEE Software.
