The REFSQ working conference is the leading European conference series on requirements engineering. It is the goal of REFSQ to foster the creation of a strong European RE community across industry and academia. Since 1994, Requirements Engineering continued to be a dominant factor influencing the quality of software, systems and services. REFSQ seeks contributions which report on novel ideas and techniques that enhance the quality of RE’s products and processes, as well as reflections on current research. REFSQ has a long tradition of being a highly structured and interactive forum. The special format of each session includes the three roles presenter, discussant, and session chair, yielding into highly interactive sessions, filled with discussions among the excellent researchers and industry experts. In addition to the high-quality scientific program, REFSQ also features a highly interactive Industry Track, Workshops and a Reserach Methodology Track.

About Essen

With about 570,000 inhabitants, Essen is one of Germany’s ten largest cities. During the last century the Ruhr city became above all known for having the largest coal and steel industry on the European continent; it is much older than Berlin or Munich and even at that time could look back on a 1000 year history. "Change through culture - culture through change": the theme that palpably characterises the entire region and the city of Essen has also convinced Brussels. Essen, along with the Ruhr District, has been nominated by the European Commission as the European Capital of Culture of 2010. Essen offers easy access to Berlin, Paris and London by plane in about one hour. Cologne and Duesseldorf can be reached by train in less than an hour.
