A full day workshop collocated with WCRE, Pittsburgh,
on 7 November, 2005. See scheduleand the proceedings.
engineering aims at extracting many
kinds of information from existing software, such as requirements
specifications, design documents, and
system artifacts, and using
this information in system renovation and program understanding [WCRE].
reverse engineering methods
focus on recovering architecture and design of software products that are
often represented in standard formats such as UML, GXL or ADL. However,
few methods recover requirements
such as goals of the various stakeholders, non-functional requirements,
early aspects, variability tradeoffs and dynamic/emergent behavior of
a forum is needed to discuss the issues related to recovering
requirements. It can enable the reverse engineered software systems to
continuously adapt to the evolving functional requirements, and to be
reengineered to meet the non-functional requirements.
goal of this full day WCRE'05 workshop is to bring together researchers
and practitioners interested in developing methods and techniques for
Reverse Engineering to Requirements (RETR). The objective of the workshop
is to sketch the state-of-the-art of the RETR practice and to identify
current trends and fields of interest, possible paths of collaboration
and points of future research directions.
of RETR 2005 are asked to submit papers relating to the scope of the
workshop. Papers must be original and previously unpublished. The organizing
committee will oversee the reviewing process. Selection will be based on
originality, ability to stimulate discussion, and presentation quality.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to participate in the workshop.
Papers must be in WCRE 2005 submission format (i.e. IEEE Proceedings
style in accepted Postscript or PDF form), in AT MOST 6 pages. You can
submit your paper to retr(at)cs.toronto.edu.
All accepted position papers will be available electronically without
page limitation before the workshop.
