The Inaugural Asia Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium (APRES) will be held at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Auckland, New Zealand. Requirements Engineering is now a well established discipline of research and practice in software and systems development. The importance of developing and following effective RE practices has long been recognised by researchers and practitioners alike.
In the last 21 years the International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE) has established an annual venue for exchange of ideas and has supported the RE community worldwide. The main aim of this symposium is to develop and expand the RE research and practice community specifically in the Asia Pacific region and to foster collaborations among researchers and practitioners in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. We also welcome participants and presentations from other parts of the world.
We invite submissions on all aspects of Requirements Engineering. In particular, those papers that present novel ideas, methods, tools, and techniques for improving and enhancing RE products and processes are welcome. We are also interested in reflections on current industrial RE practices and also encourage researchers and practitioners from fields other than RE such as Business Analysis, Software Engineering, Information Systems, Systems Engineering, Service Sciences, Human Computer Interaction, Social Sciences, and Management to submit papers.
