Submission of papers will be entirely electronic. To submit a paper,
please visit the RE'01 Paper
Submission site. You will need to prepare a PDF file containing
your paper formatted according to the standard IEEE proceedings format.
We also request that you submit an abstract (ASCII text) one week
before the full paper deadline, to help us with allocating reviewers.
To help you format your paper, you may need:
- Abstracts should be submitted by 15th February 2001
- Full papers are due by 22nd February 2001
- Authors notifications will be send out by 2nd May 2001
- Camera-ready copy will be due by 1st June 2001
- Author's Guidelines
for preparing papers in IEEE proceedings format
- A page layout template showing the page margins. Available
in: MSWord or Postscript
- Full instructions fomatted according the this template. Available
in MSWord or Postscript
- A set of LaTeX templates:
- latex8.sty -- the style
- latex8.tex -- the main
- latex8.bib -- the sample
- latex8.bst -- the bibliography
main macro set
- latex8.ps -- this file,
when printed out, will give you a sample of how your paper should
look when it's finished.
RE'01 invites submission of high-quality posters describing novel
research or experience in Requirements Engineering. The Poster programme
complements the main programme by offering an opportunity for authors
to present late-breaking or as-yet incomplete research results, or
Poster authors are required to submit a two-page proposal summarizing
the work and the results. Poster proposals will be judged on relevance,
originality and significance. The proposal should describe the substance
of the work, not how it will physically or visually appear in the
poster format. It may include a small number of references, and
even a figure or two. It is advisable to include a email address
and a URL leading to more information about the work. Accepted
proposals will be given poster space in an exhibit area during the
symposium. At least one author must register for the conference.
There will be designated hours during which the author(s) are expected
to be at their posters to present their work. If the symposium schedule
allows, poster presenters may be given an opportunity to 'advertise'
their posters in 5-10 minutes during a special session/track. Depending
on the availability of print space in the proceedings, selected
poster descriptions (proposals) may be included in the proceedings.
Submissions of the poster proposal should be in PDF format (no
more than 2 pages), conforming to same formatting requirements as
for paper submissions (described above), and be camera-ready for
possible inclusion in the proceedings. Please send submissions by
email attachment to Eric Yu,
RE’01 Posters and Demos Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Submission deadline: 14th May.
- Notification of Acceptance: 1st June.
a Research Demo
RE'01 invites submissions of high quality research demonstrations
presenting recent research results or supporting tools.
A one-page proposal describing the demo is required. Demo proposals
will be judged primarily on relevance. Accepted proposals will be
given display space in an exhibit area during the symposium.
At least one person must register for the conference for each demo.
There will be designated hours during which the demonstration is
expected to be viewable at the display space. Demonstrators are
expected to bring their own laptops or computers with monitors.
Power outlets will be available. Other requirements (e.g., Internet
connection) must be prearranged with the organizers.
Submissions should be in PDF format. Please send submissions by
email to Eric Yu, RE’01 Posters
and Demos Chair, at email@example.com.
Please note that RE'01 will also have a Tool Exhibition featuring
- Submission deadline: 14th May.
- Notification of Acceptance: 1st June.
a Doctoral Workshop Paper
Deadline for Doctoral Workshop papers has been extended to 1 June
(also available: a printable
call for submissions for the doctoral workshop in pdf)
The goal of the Doctoral Workshop is to bring together PhD students
working on foundations, techniques, tools and applications to requirements
engineering and give them the opportunity to present and discuss
their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. The
workshop aims to provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants’
current research and guidance on future research directions; and
develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative
research. The workshop and RE'01 will also provide an opportunity
for student participants to interact with established researchers
and others in the wider requirements engineering community. The
RE'01 Doctoral Workshop is a one day workshop to be held August
Students should consider participating in the doctoral workshop
at least six months before completion of their dissertation, but
after having settled on a research area or thesis topic. Each prospective
student participant will submit a package of materials for consideration
by the doctoral symposium committee. The committee will select participants
on the basis of their anticipated contribution to the symposium
goals as well as the potential benefit to students. Among the criteria
that will be considered in reviewing submissions are:
To apply as a student participant in the Doctoral Workshop, prepare
a submission package consisting of three parts listed below. Each
of these parts must be submitted electronically by the listed deadlines.
- the potential quality of the research and its relevance to
- the stage of the research (The organisers will seek to select
students across a range of research stages); and
- diversity of background, research topic, and approach.
- General Information:
Research Abstract: Submit an abstract describing your dissertation
research. Your abstract should be at least 3 pages, but not more
than 5 pages long, when prepared according to the format guidelines
below. The research abstract should clearly indicate the:
- Name of student, University and department, full mailing
address, telephone, fax, email address;
- Name of thesis advisor, University and department, full mailing
address, telephone, fax, email address
- Brief description of research topic (25 words or less)
It is important to describe a plan for evaluating your work and
presenting credible evidence of your results to the research community.
Students at relatively early stages of their research will have
some difficulty addressing some of these areas. Nonetheless, each
prospective student participant should address them as well as possible.
Letter of Recommendation: Ask your thesis advisor to submit
a letter of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The letter of recommendation must include a detailed assessment
of the current status of your thesis research and an expected
date for thesis submission.
Submission Format: The general information packet and letter of recommendation
should be plain ASCII text with no markup. Research abstracts must
be submitted in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Each research
abstract must be a single file. Typeset abstracts should be set in
12 point type with 1 inch margins on all sides for 8.5 by 11 inch
sized paper. Please submit these by email directly to Annie
Antón, RE’01 Doctoral Workshop Chair, at email@example.com
- title of your work
- research area or sub-area of your work (10 words or less).
- problem to be solved. The importance of the problem should
- justification that prior research has not solved the problem.
- research hypothesis (claim) and details of the proposed solution.
- expected contributions of your dissertation research. Progress
in solving the stated problem should be the major contribution.
- Submission Deadline: 1 June 2001
- Author Notification: 29 June 2001
- Camera-Ready Copy Due: 15 July 2001
- Doctoral Symposium: 28 August 2001
a Tutorial Proposal
RE ’01 is seeking tutorials to be offered on August 27 and 28, 2001
in conjunction with the symposium. Tutorials can focus on promising
requirements engineering research results, requirements engineering
methods that are ready to transition to practical application, or
requirements engineering methods that have been used in practice and
can be applied immediately.
Tutorial proposals should include:
Please indicate whether this tutorial has been given previously, and
if so, where, when, and the approximate audience size. If given previously,
please include a sample of the tutorial material in addition to the
- Topic (title),
- Intended audience,
- Instructor name(s)
- brief bio sketch(es),
- proposed length (half day or full day).
Proposals of no more than 2-3 pages are to be submitted electronically
