RE'01 Logo


Requirements Engineering (RE) lies at the heart of software development. RE is concerned with identifying the purpose of a software system, and the contexts in which it will be used. Hence, RE acts as the bridge between the real world needs of users, customers, and other constituencies affected by a software system, and the capabilities and opportunities afforded by software-intensive technologies. 

RE'01 is the fifth in a biennial series of international symposia on Requirements Engineering. The symposium will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share ideas and experiences, while enjoying the hospitality of the oldest and grandest hotel in Toronto. The symposium will include a technical paper track, with refereed papers describing novel research, experience reports, and surveys. The program also includes keynote speakers, panel sessions, state-of-the-art tutorials, and an exhibition, which includes companies with RE tools and services, book publishers, and other related exhibitors. We also have a series of demos of research tools, and a doctoral workshop for PhD students. 

If you are working in the area of RE, or are just interested in finding out more about the field, we would like to welcome you to join us in Toronto in August 2001.

New!The Preliminary Program and schedule are now available.

New!Registration is now open. See the registration page for details.
