RE 2013 is long over, and attention in Rio has naturally turned to the World Cup and Olympics. What we leave behind for posterity are the IEEE Conference Proceedings, which you can download here. So, be sure to check out the RE 2013 papers and get writing for the upcoming conferences in the Requirements Engineering area:
- RE 2014: The 22nd International Requirements Engineering Conference will be held in Sweden (Karlskrona) from 25-29 August. The RE 2014 conference program is available here and you can register now.
- REFSQ 2015: The International Working Conference on Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality is entering its 21st year! This Germany-based classic will be held 23-26 March 2015. Papers are due in October (see the CfP).
- RE-Track @ SAC 2015: There is a Requirements Engineering Track as part of the 30th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing. This will be held 13-17 April 2015 in Salamanca, Spain. Papers are due in September (see the CfP).

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.

Dates: 15th – 19th July, 2013
The 19th International Working Conference on Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality (REFSQ 2013) will be held in Essen, Germany on 8th–11th April 2013. The REFSQ 2013 CfP is out: abstracts and papers are due 5th and 12th November 2012.
“REFSQ 2013 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 “Interdisciplinary RE” as the special theme for REFSQ’13. 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.”
