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.

In this fifth edition, we aim to further enrich our existing body of valuable synergy ideas that we elaborated in the previous successful workshop editions. Moreover, as a special issue, we aim to collaboratively work with input from real experts to get inspired by completely new disciplines such as sports, medicine and psychology.

The workshop results are intended to serve as “inspiration” for the development of new RE methods when it comes to addressing current RE-related challenges and to foster future collaborations across the boundaries of RE with other disciplines.

The workshop will be held as a virtual event.

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.
