Requirements Engineering (RE) is a dominant factor that influences the quality of software, systems and services. The REFSQ working conference series is well established as one of the leading international forums for discussing RE and its many relations to quality. This edition's special theme is "I heard it first at REFSQ", aiming to promote a discussion on new views on RE and thus contributing to lay the ground for future research and practice improvements.


REFSQ'16 also includes a forum to present posters and demonstrate tools covering any aspect of RE. It gives researchers the chance to present their most recent work and obtain early feedback on ongoing research. Posters may cover any topic in scope of the conference and should present (progress towards) a scientific result and should not be advertisements for commercial products. While posters need not describe completed work, they should at least present some preliminary results. The tools track provides researchers as well as practitioners with the opportunity to show how they support and enable the use of requirements solutions in practice, making the solutions more usable and useful. We encourage to discuss experiences and lessons learned when using the tool in practice.


Poster presentation

In addition to the poster session, the posters will be on display in the coffee hall outside the REFSQ'16 lecture rooms. There will also be brief and informal presentations of the posters. Well-crafted posters will present the work well by themselves, but authors of posters are encouraged to be available to describe and discuss their work during coffee break. The poster dimension will normally be A0, with poster content mounted on rectangular poster board we will provide. At least one of the poster authors must be registered at the conference and present the poster, in order to have the work published in the proceedings.


Tool demonstration

Tools will be presented at desks using your own laptop and screens provided by the REFSQ organizers. At least one of the tool authors must be registered at the conference and present the tool, in order to have the work published in the proceedings.



For the submission of the papers the general REFSQ submission guidelines apply. All submissions are limited to 2 pages in LNCS format. Submit to:
