Call for papers


Engineering approaches are or should be grounded on sound elaborated systems models, enterprise architectures, ontologies, and information logistics representations. Engineering approaches should also support transparency, reliability, and security in the whole lifecycle of the system. Currently engineering approaches are designed and are mainly applied to large enterprises that have relatively long change cycle times. When the changes are more frequent and higher flexibility is required, it is necessary to adopt continuous engineering approaches; especially during the requirements stage. Continuous requirements engineering is proposed to combine rigid engineering principles with agility, emergence, and spontaneity to support sustainability and viability of systems.

Managing of smaller scale enterprises in a turbulent environment also requires new approaches, methods, and tools to make them capable of embracing the growing variety of opportunities and challenges offered by a fast changing environment. Thus, continuous requirements engineering can be a solution here if integrated with management and design approaches applicable for smaller scale enterprises.

The aim of this workshop is to support continuous requirements engineering approaches, methods, models, and tools for multi-scale fast changing enterprises and both predictable and unpredictable configurations of enterprise networks. Reports about new ideas and of experience in this context will be presented and discussed. Also welcomed are reports about continuous requirements engineering approaches that have not yet been applied to continuous engineering but have the potential to do so. A cross-pollination of experiences in modeling and requirements management is assumed.


There are three types of submissions: position papers, research papers and reports. All types should treat a topic from the workshop themes.

  • Position papers (2-6 pages): Such papers should state the position of the authors regarding any topic of the workshop.
  • Reports (5-8 pages): Experience reports and case studies are expected to be submitted in this category.
  • Research papers (5-15 pages): Research papers should describe innovative approaches.
The call for paper can be downloaded as pdf-file.

Publication

Workshop contributions will be published in the in the joint REFSQ workshop proceedings at CEUR.

Papers should be formatted following the LNCS formatting guidelines of Springer (templates are available here). Submissions will be collected via the at: EasyChair online submission system. Selected extended papers can be published in the International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design and/or Journal Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling CSIMQ in a regular or special issue.
