The D4RE workshops aims to bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in discussing the question “What can requirements engineering learn from other disciplines?”

The overall goal of the workshop is to raise awareness for this interesting topic in the RE community and foster future collaborations across the boundaries of requirements engineering and software engineering. Together with people from academia and industry we aim to develop a body of best practices from other disciplines and their possible synergies with RE. The overall workshop concept is based on our initial findings from literature reviews as well as on a creativity session conducted with 30 participants. These findings will be supplemented with new ideas gained during workshop discussions and will be elaborated in more detail with the workshop participants in breakout sessions.

The outcomes of the workshop will include a set of promising ideas intended to serve as “inspiration” for people from academia and research when it comes to addressing current RE-related challenges. Moreover, we aim to elaborate synergies between best practices identified from other disciplines and RE-related activities in greater detail and identify future research and collaboration strategies with regard to the workshop.

Target audience

The workshop is open to the public and invites both researchers and practitioners who have an interest in sharing experiences and ideas and in learning from other disciplines. No special background knowledge is required. Rather, a diversity of people with different backgrounds is even desired and will enrich the  workshop.
