Sessions First D4RE Edition

The workshop is intended as a one-day workshop organized into four 90-minutes sessions.

9:00 – 10:30: SESSION I: OPENING

The first opening session is intended to give an introduction to the workshop participants and to provide the participants with the chance to introduce themselves and share their expectations for the workshop. Furthermore, an opening talk entitled “Ideas Made of Steal” will be given by one of the organizers (Marcus Trapp). In this talk, lots of illustrative real-world examples will be presented in an entertaining way, showing that successful and innovative ideas and products of famous artists, scientists, etc. have actually been “stolen” but adapted by others. The overall key message of the talk is to encourage people to look at others’ work, steal existing ideas BUT add something new to these “stolen ideas”.

10:30 – 11:00: BREAK


In the presentation session, the authors of accepted papers will present their ideas, experiences and lessons learned. The length of the presentations will be only 5 minutes. Moreover, prepared results taken from a previously conducted creativity will be presented to the workshop participants by the workshop organizers. These results comprise specifications of inspirational ideas taken from other disciplines and initial hypothetical synergy possibilities for the RE domain. Supplemented by new ideas from the authors of accepted papers, these ideas will be the subject of the subsequent breakout session.

The presentation schedule is planned as follows:

  • 11:00 – 11:05 Meira Levy and Irit Hadar: „Multidisciplinary Requirements Engineering for Addressing Social-Oriented Concerns“
  • 11:05 – 11:10 Christopher Lankeit, Jan Michael, Christian Henke and Ansgar Trächtler: „Holistic Requirements for Interdisciplinary Development Processes“
  • 11:10 – 11:15 Mahdi Ghasemi: „What Requirements Engineering can Learn from Process Mining“
  • 11:15 – 11:20 Alex Dekhtyar and Jane Hayes: „Automating Requirements Traceability: Two Decades of Learning from KDD“
  • 11:20 – 11:25 Marcin Ocieszak, Krzysztof Wnuk and David Callele: „On the use of Financial Valuation Techniques in Requirements Engineering“
  • 11:25 – 11:30 Oliver Karras and Kurt Schneider: „Software Professionals are No Directors: What Constitutes a Good Video?“
  • 11:30 – 11:35 Richa Sharma and Smita Ghaisas: „About Auteuring Requirements- Lessons from Filmmaking“
  • 11:35 – 11:40 Zachary J. Oster: „Improving Requirements Elicitation through Listening Research“
  • 11:40 – 11:45 Natalia Mannov: „Freud, Kierkegaard, and Gamification in RE“
  • 11:45 – 12:30 Introduction to breakout session (by organizers)

12:30 –  14:00: LUNCH BREAK

14:00 – 15:30: SESSION III: BREAKOUT

The goal of the breakout session is to collaboratively work on selected ideas (based on prioritization by the workshop participants) and elaborate the synergies with RE-related activities in more detail. To achieve this, we consider dividing the participants into working groups of 4-6 people. Each group will be provided with suitable techniques and material to collaboratively discuss and document findings related to a set of leading questions. Afterwards, each group will then present the elaborated group work results and the insights they gained during their discussions to all workshop participants.

15:30 –  16:00: BREAK

16:00 – 17:30: SESSION IV: BREAKOUT (cont.) & WRAP-UP

The workshop will be closed with a wrap-up session. The goal of this wrap-up session is to agree on a future research agenda, identify collaborations between industry and academia (e.g., communities, networking), and elicit new ideas for future workshops
