Requirements Engineering is now a well-established discipline of research and practice in software and systems development. The importance of developing and following effective RE practices has long been recognised by researchers and practitioners alike. In Asia-Pacific region, the requirements engineering is also getting more and more attention due to increasing reliance on software intensive systems.

The main aim of APRES (Asia-Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium) is to develop and expand the RE research and practice community specifically in the Asia Pacific region and brings together researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government to share the state of the art and practice in requirements engineering, and to explore emerging challenges in requirements engineering innovation and foster collaboration. We also welcome participants and presentations from other parts of the world.

Call For Papers

Call for Papers and Relevant Topics (but are not limited to) We invite original research and industry paper submissions in all areas of RE including elicitation, modelling, analysis, specification, validation and management. We accept papers in the following two categories.
  1. Research Papers
  2. We accept Technical Solution papers that describe and validate better solutions to requirements problems, Scientific Evaluation papers that evaluate existing problem situations or proposed solutions by scientific means and Vision papers that explore successes and challenges of requirements practices, or present research roadmaps.
  3. Industry Experience Papers
  4. Industry experience papers include application of RE techniques in real-world settings, problems encountered in practice and reports on innovative approaches to RE practice in industrial or government settings.
The papers may address the following topics, but are not limited to:
  • Needs and challenges of RE(Requirements Engineering)
  • Processes and methodology for RE
  • Exploitation of graphical/visual and/or formal representation in RE
  • Implementation of new requirements engineering methods in RE
  • Tool support selection, customization and environment for RE
  • Introduction of new techniques, such as artificial intelligence and big data analytics, to RE
  • Experience, case studies and lessons learned in RE in practices
