  • Requirements engineering education and training;
  • Requirements engineering for specific software development paradigms, such as the agent-driven, aspect-driven, model-driven, or service-driven;
  • Requirements engineering for specific fields, such as safety-critical, web-based, or mobile applications systems;
  • Requirements engineering in agile methodologies;
  • Requirements specification languages, methods, processes, and tools;
  • Model-driven software engineering;
  • Regulatory compliance.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be submitted through the Easychair submission system in PDF only, according to the LNCS format. Submissions must be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English.

Submissions for the Regular Research Track must present original results on research, teaching and industrial viewpoints on all aspects of Requirements Engineering. The selection process will consider applicability and relevance to Requirements Engineering, originality, and clarity.

The WER-RT uses a double-blind review process. All submissions (and supplemental materials) must be appropriately anonymized according to the following guidelines: Authors' names and affiliations should not be visible anywhere in the paper. Acknowledgments should be anonymized or removed for the review process. Self-citations should be included where necessary but must use the third person. For example, "as shown in our previous user study [2]" is not allowed, while "as shown in Smith et al. [2]" is acceptable (in this case, the citation [2] does NOT break anonymization). Logos and other organizational affiliations in images should be blurred. Follow these guidelines to avoid submissions being desk rejected without review.

Full Papers should not exceed 14 pages, formatted according to the LNCS page format format.

Short papers not exceeding 7 pages are also accepted.

Any paper that: exceeds the page limit, is not within the scope of the conference, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review. All submissions are going to be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee.

All accepted papers will be published with Open Access through the WERpapers repository.

Abstracts extended (not exceeding 4 pages) are also welcome. They can be used by authors to validate their ideas, and they will be presented at the event. Nevertheless, they will not be published in the proceedings of the event.
