For its thirteenth birthday, REFSQ evolves into a working conference!

However, REFSQ will perpetuate its tradition of being a highly structured and interactive forum for researchers and practitioners to address the problem of ensuring software quality through requirements engineering (RE).

RE is as integral to the assurance of software quality now as it was when the first REFSQ took place in 1994. Compared to 1994, our understanding of RE has improved, while newer and better methods and tools are available to practitioners. At the same time, however, new challenges have emerged.

REFSQ’07 seeks reports of innovative work in RE that enhance the quality of software and systems, particularly where challenged by new development paradigms or technologies. We encourage researchers and practitioners from the RE, software engineering, information systems, and embedded systems fields to present original work. Contributions from cognate areas such as formal methods, systems engineering, economics and management and social sciences are very welcome for the insights they provide in RE.
