Overview – 2020


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 fourth 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 of this fourth edition, we aim to explicitly examine the reverse synergy direction by discussing the question “What can other disciplines learn from RE?”. 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.

Please check our interesting and interactive program.

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.

We would especially like to invite any spouses accompanying our RE community members to Zurich to attend our workshop and to share their experience from their daily work, which might differ considerably from the RE discipline.
