IFIP 2.9
 IFIP 2.9 Requirements Engineering    

IFIP Working Group 2.9 Software Requirements Engineering was established in 1993. It is a working group within TC-2 (Software: Theory and Practice), which in turn is a technical committee of IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing)

 Aims and Scopes    

WG2.9 - Software Requirements Engineering
Established 1995



The aim of the Working Group is to develop a better understanding of:

  • the elicitation, specification, analysis and management of the requirements for large and complex software intensive systems;
  • the interpretation and documentation of those requirements in such a way as to permit the developer to construct a system which will satisfy them. 


The Scope of the WG includes all aspects of requirements engineering. Some examples of areas of special interest are:

  • formal representation schemes and requirements modelling;
  • descriptions of the requirements engineering process;
  • tools and environments to support requirements engineering;
  • requirements engineering methods;
  • requirements analysis and validation;
  • requirements elicitation, acquisition and formalisation;
  • methods and tools for verification of an implementation's compliance with requirements;
  • reuse and adaptation of requirements;
  • domain modelling and analysis;
  • requirements engineering for distributed, safety-critical, composite, real-time and embedded systems. 
Upcoming Annual Meeting -- Cancun, Mexico -- 7-11 February 2011 -- posted:Thursday, August 26, 2010
IFIP Working Group 2.9 (Requirements Engineering) will convene its annual meeting
this February 7-11 2010 in San Diego, California. (Attendance is by invitation only.)
At this meeting, senior researchers in the field will present recent work, provide and
receive valuable feedback on ongoing research programs, and discuss issues and
challenges facing the field of Requirements Engineering Research, Practice, and
Education. Questions or comments can be directed to the Chairs and Secretary. read more ...
