1st International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Investigating and Countering Crime

September 12, 2016, Beijing, China


Co-located with the 24th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference, 12-16 September 2016 - Beijing, China.


We invite two types of submissions:

1)  Proceeding submissions may take any of the following forms:

  • Research and experience papers (8 pages) intended to make all participants aware of existing and on-going research in this area.
  • Position papers (4 pages) presenting preliminary research into new requirements engineering techniques.
  • Vision papers (4 pages) exploring challenges of requirements practices or presenting research roadmaps.

Papers under this category should not have been submitted for review or published elsewhere.

2)   Practitioner discussion submissions are intended to encourage participation from crime analysts, police officers and developers of investigative software and security systems, who can offer an informed opinion about practical challenges that should be primarily addressed. Submissions under this category require a title, abstract of no more than 500 words and author information. The inclusion of accepted abstracts in the proceedings will be at the discretion of the authors.

All submitted papers must be written in English and must follow RE 2016 formatting guidelines. Submissions are accepted via Easy Chair. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Digital Library. Authors of best proceedings papers will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their papers to the IET Software journal.
