International Workshop on Requirements Engineering and Testing
Requirements Engineering and Testing are both important areas within software engineering, each with their research communities and set of practitioners. The coordination of these two fields affects the efficiency and the effectiveness of the entire software development cycle and its lead time, making this an important topic from a business perspective. While much work has been done in the respective fields of Requirements Engineering (RE) and Testing, there exists much more that can be done to increase the connection between the RE and the Testing process.
The objective of RET is to explore the interaction of Requirements Engineering (RE) and Testing, in research and industry, and the challenges that result from this interaction. We hope RET will provide a much needed forum for exchanging ideas and best practices for aligning RE and testing, and in particular can help foster industry-academia collaboration on this topic. RET expects submissions exploring how to best align RE and testing. This can include processes, practices, artifacts, methods, techniques, tools and softer aspects like the communication between roles in the engineering process. Submissions can vary from short position papers outlining observed problems, to short papers employing case studies, experiments, experience reports, etc. We particularly encourage submissions from industrial practitioners or those working with industrial partners.
