Call For Papers

Requirements Engineering (RE) is a dominant factor that influences the quality of software, systems and services. The REFSQ working conference series is well established as one of the leading international forums for discussing RE and its many relations to quality. The first REFSQ took place in 1994, and since 2010 REFSQ has been organised as a stand-alone conference. In April 2014, we again welcome participants to attend REFSQ'14, which will be held in Essen, Germany. Details will be published on the website soon:
Working Conference Format

Working Conference Format
REFSQ has a long tradition of being a highly structured and interactive forum. Each session is organised in order to provoke discussion among the presenters of papers, pre-assigned discussants, and all the other participants.

REFSQ'14 seeks reports of novel ideas and techniques that enhance the quality of RE’s products and processes, as well as reflections on current research and industrial RE practices. We invite submissions on any aspect of RE. We encourage researchers and practitioners from the RE, software engineering, information systems, service science, and embedded systems fields to present original work. We have chosen “Games for RE and RE for Games” as the special theme for REFSQ'14. In addition to general papers on RE and quality, we therefore encourage submissions that highlight the interplay of RE with related disciplines such as software architecture, quality assurance, user interface design, project management, and agile software development. Contributions from further related areas such as systems engineering, economics, and management are also very welcome for the insights they provide to RE.

Paper Categories
We invite original submissions in various categories:
– Full research papers (up to 15 pages), including solution papers, empirical studies, surveys, and comparative studies
– Experience reports (up to 15 pages), describing positive and negative experiences
– Vision papers (up to 6 pages) stating where the research in the field should be heading towards
– Problem statements (up to 6 pages) describing open issues of practical or theoretical nature
– Research previews (up to 6 pages) reporting research results at an early stage

Papers should be submitted using EasyChair at

Workshop Proposals
If you would like to organize a workshop in association with REFSQ, you are incited to submit your workshop proposal no later than Wednesday, October 9, 2013. More information can be found on the REFSQ website:

Other Events
REFSQ'14 will also call for submissions for:
– Workshops focussing on topics related to REFSQ
– A poster session for researchers to present their most recent work
– A doctoral symposium in which PhD students present their research
– Empirical studies to be run during REFSQ in collaboration with companies

The REFSQ'14 proceedings will be published in Springer’s LNCS series.
