Call for Proposals

The 26th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'18) continues the effort of the RE series by holding a posters and demos session to promote interaction and discussion among conference participants.

The intention is for conference participants to be able to mingle and interact with a variety of poster presenters, tool demonstrators, practitioners of techniques, and producers of artefacts.


We invite submissions of high-quality extended abstracts for posters and tool demos. We particularly encourage submissions related to the conference topics: posters and demos about the main theme of the conference “Crossing Boundaries and Increasing Impact”. However, contributions related to all facets of requirements engineering are also welcome

Posters may present late-breaking research or work in progress. A poster can help attract interest and give a rapid overview of what your research is all about. Demos provide the opportunity to showcase any innovative tools or research prototypes

At the conference, the work described in the extended abstract will be presented as a poster or as a demo. We seek demos that explicitly give the audience the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with these technologies or which demonstrate interactively how a requirements engineering tool, method or technique can be applied (e.g., participants may try out the tools in an experiment-like and role-playing setting)

We particularly encourage the submission of posters or demos that are augmented with:

    • A live demo of proposed requirements engineering tools;
    • Video samples from industrial or educational application of requirements engineering techniques;
    • Games exploring the main concepts of the requirement engineering tool, method, or technique; or
    • Examples of the use of rich media in requirements engineering, including requirements visualizations, multimedia requirements documents, scenarios, storyboards, and vision/concept materials.

Submission Process

Poster authors are invited to submit original extended abstracts describing work and results that have not been submitted for review or publication elsewhere. Extended abstracts for demos should describe tools, techniques, or methods for requirements engineering, including references, contributions, and how the work relates to other industrial or research efforts. Extended abstracts may include a small number of references, or one or two helpful figures.

Extended abstracts for both posters and demos must be written in English, not exceed 2 pages, and conform to the IEEE formatting instructions.

An attachment with a maximum of 2 additional pages must be included in the submission. The attachment must clearly state how the work described in the extended abstract is to be presented at the conference, emphasizing interaction potential and explaining how an engaging participant experience will be achieved. The attachment may contain images of screenshots, should include an email address, and could include a URL leading to more information about the work, e.g., a preliminary version of the video for a poster or demo.

The extended abstract and its attachment must be submitted as one file in pdf format via EasyChair, the total length of which must not exceed 2 + 2 pages.

Inspiration for Creating Posters

Review Process

Poster and demo submissions will be reviewed by a committee, and based on:

    • The quality, relevance, originality, significance, and soundness of the contribution presented in the extended abstract;
    • The visual and pedagogic quality of the poster or demo; and
    • Potential for fostering interaction with the audience.

We consider that both deliverables (extended abstract and poster/demo) are important. The extended abstract is useful for people reading the proceedings. The poster or demo is essential to carry your point to the conference's participants (your primary target). Making a poster or giving a demo is a superb opportunity to develop the skills for an effective presentation.
