RE Education and Training: Can Academia and Industry Learn Together?
A quick update on deadlines for papers for this year’s RE’12, which will be held in Chicago:
June 18, 2012 – Paper submission (extended deadline)
July 16, 2012 – Author notification
August 6, 2012 – Camera ready material
To learn more about topics for this year’s RE’12, see details in our May 23 blog post here.
Papers will be accepted in the following formats:
Position papers (3-5 pages): Short papers stating the position of the author(s) on any of the topics within the scope of the workshop. For example, position papers could describe experiences with a particular method for teaching an RE related skill within an industrial context, or could describe an innovative approach to incorporating RE education into the degree curriculum. Position papers will be evaluated based on their potential for generating discussion, and on the originality of the positions expressed.
Full papers (8-10 pages): Full papers describing requirements engineering educational techniques, survey results, or experiential reports. For example, a full paper might describe a specific technique for teaching an RE skill and include a case study describing its implementation and evaluation of its effectiveness as well as lessons learnt. As another example, a full paper might describe a mature tool for supporting RE training.
Pedagogical activity papers (2-4 pages + supporting documentation): Pedagogical papers will describe a teaching activity and provide all of the materials needed to reproduce that activity in the classroom. Authors of full and position papers, plus anyone else interested in attending the workshop are encouraged to also submit a pedagogical activity. Teaching activities will be documented using a predefined format, and will focus on one or more RE skills, define target audience and learning goals, provide step-by-step guidelines for conducting the activity, include student hand-outs or associated slides, describe the context of the activity, and briefly comment on its prior use in the classroom.
