Call For Papers

UsARE 2017 -
3rd International Workshop on Usability and Accessibility focused Requirements Engineering
September 04, 2017, Lisbon, Portugal

In conjunction with the 25th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2017)

Usability and accessibility issues are common causes for software failing to meet user requirements. However, requirements engineers often focus on functional requirements and may not sufficiently consider usability and accessibility requirements. This high risk practice can lead to project and software failure. Conversely, when poorly done, improving the usability and accessibility requirements during development can be very costly, time consuming, and even ineffective. Targeting these concerns, the workshop addresses the integration of system usability and accessibility requirements into the requirements engineering process, including processes for managing and controlling the evaluation of these requirements in a systematic way.

The UsARE 2017 workshop is dedicated to observations, concepts, approaches, frameworks and practices that promote understanding, facilitating, and increasing the awareness of the role of system usability and accessibility requirements and their proper integration into requirement engineering.

The UsARE 2017 workshop strongly encourages submissions that focus on usability and accessibility requirements for IOT (Internet of Things) including mobile and wearable computing, but submissions on other relevant topics are also welcome.

Topics of interest for paper submissions include, but are not limited to methodologies, frameworks, concepts, and tool support for:

- User-centered requirements engineering
* Elicitation, representation, and negotiation of usability and accessibility requirements
* Evaluation of usability and accessibility requirements
- Impacts of RE and usability/accessibility considerations on software design and development processes and products
- Usability and accessibility requirements management
- RE at run-time for usable and accessible, adaptable and adaptive systems
- Usability and accessibility requirements for mobile and distributed apps and services

Papers are solicited in the following categories:

- Research papers (technical solutions and empirical studies)
- Practice papers (experience reports and problem statements)
- Tool demonstration papers
- Case studies and best practices

Full papers (up to 7 pages) including references and short/position/vision papers (up to 4 pages) including references are accepted.

Submissions must be written in English and conform to the (IEE 2016 formatting instructions: Submissions must be in PDF format and submitted electronically via EasyChair (

All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work and must not have been submitted elsewhere for publication. The selection of papers will be based on workshop relevance, academic rigor, innovation, industrial applicability, quality of writing and for their ability to trigger discussions.

Accepted papers will be included in the UsARE 2017 Proceedings published by IEEE and will be available online in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to register for the workshop.

Submission deadline: Friday, June 16, 2017 (Extended!)
Notification of acceptance: Friday, June 30, 2017
Camera-ready submission: Friday, July 14, 2017
Workshop: Monday, September 04, 2017

Note that all submission deadlines are firm. All submission deadlines are 23:59 any where in the world.
