The Third Asia-Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium




In Asia-Pacific region, the requirements engineering is getting more and more important due to the rapid growth of the demand of software development.
APRES (Asia-Pacific Requirements Engineering Symposium) brings together researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government to share the state of the art and practice in requirements engineering, and to explore emerging challenges in requirements engineering innovation. APRES 2016 will be held in Nagoya, where is known as Nagoya castle, and a heart of Japanese quality engineering, including one of the world largest community of the automotive industry.
APRES will offer an extensive program of both research and practice in all the area of requirements engineering.

Call for Papers and Relevant Topics (but are not limited to)

We invite original research and industry paper submissions in all areas of RE including elicitation, modelling, analysis, specification, validation and management. We accept Technical Solution papers that describe and validate better solutions to requirements problems, Scientific Evaluation papers that evaluate existing problem situations or proposed solutions by scientific means and Vision papers that explore successes and challenges of requirements practices, or present research roadmaps. Industry submissions include application of RE techniques in real-world settings, problems encountered in practice and reports on innovative approaches to RE practice in industrial or government settings.

  • Needs and challenges of RE(Requirements Engineering)
  • Processes and methodology for RE
  • Exploitation of graphical/visual and/or formal representation in RE
  • Implementation of new requirements engineering methods in RE
  • Tool support selection, customization and environment for RE
  • Introduction of new techniques, such as artificial intelligence and big data analytics, to RE
  • Experience, case studies and lessons learned in RE in practices



The proceedings of the APRES 2016 will be published by the Springer as a volume of Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.
