W1 CIRCUS: Collaboration and Intercultural Issues on Requirements: Communication, Understanding and Softskills
Christian Lescher - Siemens AG, Germany
Anne Hoffmann - Siemens AG, Germany
Many development projects today involve teams, which are distributed over multiple sites or countries. Major drivers are cost competitiveness, access to talent regardless of location, and co-location with important markets or customers. While the advantages are obvious, global development also introduces big challenges. One of the major problem areas is requirements engineering. Communication and coordination of requirements are impeded by distance, different domain knowledge and organizational structures as well as cultural differences. Miscommunication is one major reason for issues such as cost overruns, project delay and quality problems. This workshop will focus on multi-site collaboration and intercultural issues related to requirements and how to deal with them. It will provide a forum for discussion of best practices, lessons learned and for experience exchange.

W2 REET’09: Fourth International Workshop on Requirements Engineering Education and Training
Joy Beatty - Seilevel, Inc., USA
Ljerka Beus-Dukic - University of Westminster, UK
Following the success of the three previous workshops on Requirements Engineering Education and Training (REET 2005, 2007 and 2008), this workshop will address issues related to RE education, both as part of a formal university degree and as ongoing skills training within the workplace. The workshop is intended to go much deeper than a surface discussion of curriculum issues and will examine specific ideas and techniques for teaching and assessing skills needed by an effective requirements engineer.

W3 REV'09: Fourth International Workshop on Requirements Engineering Visualization
Brian Berenbach - Siemens Corporate Research, USA
Olly Gotel - Pace University, USA
The workshop aims to provide a collaborative session in which ideas related to the uses of visualization in requirements engineering are shared, reviewed and debated. The controversy surrounding the practicality of non-traditional requirements engineering techniques will be discussed. The workshop will be used to identify future work, issues, problems and priorities, and to propose recommendations around these dimensions for requirements engineering visualization research.

W4 RE-Vote'09: First International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for E-voting Systems
J. Paul Gibson - T&MSP, France
Douglas W. Jones - University of Iowa, USA
The workshop proposes to identify best-practice for the engineering of e-voting system requirements, and to improve the specification of e-voting system standards and accreditation (certification) processes. Particular attention will be paid to the analysis of voting requirements documents, including those that pre-date e-voting.

W5 IWSPM’09: Third International Workshop on Software Product Management
Tony Gorschek - Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden
Samuel Fricker - University of Zurich & Fuchs-Informatik AG, Switzerland
Sjaak Brinkkemper - Utrecht University, The Netherlands
Christof Ebert - Vector Consulting Services, Germany

The success of any software intensive product depends on skilled and competent product management. In essence, a product manager decides what functionality and quality a product should offer, to which customers, and when in time, while assuring a winning business case. Software product management is not only relevant for pure software companies and companies that develop software intensive systems, but also for companies that provide services to customers using long-lived software infrastructures. After the success of the first two workshops collocated with the recent RE conferences this workshop aims at bringing practitioners and research experts together for exchanging ideas and experience and for setting the research agenda based on industry needs.

Keynote by John Milburn, Pragmatic Marketing:
What has been learned by training 60'000 product managers over a period of 16 years in product requirements specification?

W6 MaRK’09: Second International Workshop on Managing Requirements Knowledge
Anil Kumar Thurimella - Harman/Becker, Germany
Walid Maalej - TU München, Germany
Hans-Jörg Happel - FZI Karlsruhe, Germany
MaRK'09 focuses on potentials and benefits of lightweight knowledge management approaches, such as ontologies, semantic Wikis and rationale management techniques, applied to requirements engineering. Novel ideas, emerging methodologies, frameworks and tools as well as industrial experiences for capturing, representing, sharing and reusing tacit knowledge in requirements engineering processes are discussed. Furthermore, the workshop will provide an interactive exchange platform between the knowledge management community, requirements engineering community and industrial practitioners.

W7 RELAW'09: Second International Workshop on Requirements Engineering and Law
Daniel Amyot - University of Ottawa, Canada
Annie I. Antón - North Carolina State University, USA
Travis D. Breaux - North Carolina State University, USA
Dimitries Kragiannis - University of Vienna, Austria
The workshop is a multi-disciplinary, one-day workshop that will bring together practitioners and researchers from government, industry and academia to investigate challenges to ensuring that information systems comply with the law. The workshop will probe important issues, including the processes for identifying relevant laws and jurisdictions, aligning laws with system requirements, managing requirements and changes in the law and demonstrating how systems comply with relevant laws through evidence-based mechanisms such as documentation, testing and certification.

W8 RHET'09: The Rhetoric of Requirements
Colin Potts - Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
Karen Head - Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
Requirements engineering depends on effective communication across the boundaries between discourse communities (e.g. users, marketing people, developers, testers, and domain experts), but the treatment of communication in the RE community does not fully recognize the potential contribution of rhetorical theories. The broad aim of this workshop is to foster the development of a research community and a community of practice that integrates theories of rhetoric into communication of requirements. The short-term goal is to bring together researchers, scholars and practitioners to exchange preliminary research results and practical experiences.
