2020-08-31 – RE’20: 28th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference

Conference on August 31 to September 4, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Theme: Requirements Engineering for a Digital World.

RE’20 is the premier international forum for researchers, practitioners, educators, and students to present and discuss the most recent innovations, experiences, and concerns in the discipline of requirements engineering. RE’20 will offer an extensive program of interest to academia, government and industry. It will include several distinguished keynote speakers and three conference days full of papers, panels, posters and demos. A series of exciting tutorials to develop skills in and advance awareness of requirements engineering practices is of particular interest to industry. Two days of workshops as well as doctoral symposium offer forums for participants to present cutting-edge techniques and approaches in particular fields.

Keynote Speakers

  • Francien Dechesne — Assistant Professor at the eLaw Center for Law and Digital Technologies (eLaw) of the Leiden Law School. Her research interest is the translation between ethical, legal and technical aspects of the application of digital technologies throughout society. Her current research focuses on fairness issues around so-called algorithmic decisions, and – more generally – responsible AI.
  • David Marcos — Leads Ethics Governance and Compliance for Microsoft’s Cloud & Artificial Intelligence division, driving the build-out of ethics governance for AI. Prior to this position, David was Chief Privacy Officer of Microsoft’s Cloud & Artificial Intelligence division, driving privacy governance and supporting build-out of privacy engineering solutions for GDPR.
  • Jeff Kramer — Professor of Computing at Imperial College London. His research work is primarily concerned with software engineering, with particular emphasis on evolving software architectures, behaviour analysis, the use of models in requirements elaboration and self organising adaptive software systems.

The transition toward a digital world entails numerous challenges for requirements engineering (RE), involving both classic and contemporary problems. An example of a classic problem is to specify digital systems that must satisfy requirements in the real world. Examples of contemporary problems are mining requirements from user feedback, intertwining requirements with digital design in innovative products, and how to specify and validate requirements for intelligent and self-learning systems. The challenges also include general problems during the transition toward a digital world such as managing uncertainty, establishing transparency and maintaining trust.

Call for Papers

We invite you to submit your latest work to RE’20 and to come to Zurich, a city in the heart of Europe which is both beautiful and easily reachable from everywhere in the world. Make RE’20 the highlight of your year: present your latest insights and learn about those of your colleagues in the field. Discuss, meet and network with experts, colleagues and friends – and enjoy the thrill of landscape, culture, shopping, and life in Zurich.
