13th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference

Paris , France

High-quality requirements are at the heart of successful products, in that a product is successful if it effectively satisfies some essential need.

High-quality requirements are at the heart of successful products, in that a product is successful if it effectively satisfies some essential need. Engineering successful products involves understanding the needs of users, customers, and other stakeholders, as well as the contexts in which the product will be used; specifying, modelling, and analyzing the stakeholders’ requirements; and using these requirements to guide design decisions, to define acceptance criteria for evaluating the final product, and to constrain the product’s evolution. Requirements encompass more than desired functionality — users increasingly demand systems that are usable, reliable, secure, and responsive, while product developers expect to be able to adapt and enhance products rapidly, in response to users’ changing needs. As such, requirements activities are multi-disciplinary, drawing on research and experience in computer science, mathematics, engineering, human–computer interaction, and social and cognitive sciences.
RE’05 will bring together researchers, practitioners, and students to exchange problems, solutions, and experiences
concerning requirements. The conference will emphasize the crucial role that requirements play in the successful
development and delivery of systems, products, and services.
