Come to RE 2013 in Rio!

“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.”
– Coco Chanel

In 2013, the IEEE International Requirements Engineering (RE) conference will be held for the 21st time. To mark this coming of age, the special theme of the annual conference will be RE@21: Keeping Requirements on Track, and there is arguably no better place for a 21st birthday celebration than Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. Turning 21, it is the perfect time to examine the contribution of the RE conference series to the state of the art in RE research and practice (to explore trends, patterns, progress and stumbling blocks), and to ensure that we set off toward the future in the right direction and with renewed vigor.

Join us in Rio! Whether you are an academic, industry and business practitioner, instructor or student, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to contribute to the conference, through: papers, tutorials, workshops, posters, tool demos, panels, debates, and a doctoral symposium. If you don’t have the time or inclination to prepare anything in advance, just come along to learn the latest about what is happening in RE from the keynote speakers and your peers, and enjoy the many interactive events we have planned to network and share your opinions. We have a superb and energetic international team behind RE’13, working for you, so contact them if you have ideas or questions.

So, get thinking about how you can participate right now and start dreaming about your trip to Brasil. According to TripAdvisor, Rio is the number one destination in Brasil, so bring your partner and friends along too. But why stop there? You’d be crazy not to use the opportunity to explore more of this amazing and varied country, sample feijoada on Saturday, and (of course) enjoy caipirinha nightly.

Please help us spread the news about RE’13. Link to the RE’13 website and check it regularly for updates and news over the months ahead.

Dates: 15th – 19th July, 2013
