Proceedings of Workshop on Requirements Engineering

A cada ano, o WER convida a apresentação de trabalhos descrevendo novas pesquisas ou experiências no campo da Engenharia de Requisitos. Trabalhos que apresentem resultados originais em ambos os pontos de vista de pesquisa, ensino e indústria em todos os aspectos da Engenharia de Requisitos são bem-vindos. O processo de seleção considerara a aplicabilidade e relevância para Engenharia de Requisitos, originalidade e clareza. Todos os artigos devem ser submetidos através do sistema de submissão somente em PDF, de acordo com o formato LNCS. Os artigos devem ser escritos em português, espanhol ou inglês. Qualquer artigo que: exceda o limite de páginas, não esteja no escopo da conferência ou não siga as diretrizes de formatação poderá ser rejeitado sem revisão.
