Call for Posters and Tool Demos

The 27th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'19) continues the effort of the RE series by holding a posters & demos session to promote interaction and discussion among conference participants.

The intention is for conference participants to be able to mingle and interact with a variety of poster presenters, tool demonstrators, practitioners of techniques, and producers of artifacts.


We invite submissions of high-quality extended abstracts for posters and tool demos. We particularly encourage submissions related to the main theme of the conference: RE and Collective Intelligence in the Days of AI. However, contributions related to all facets of requirements engineering are also welcome.

Posters may present late-breaking research or work in progress. A poster can help attract interest and give a rapid overview of what your research is all about.

Demos provide the opportunity to showcase any innovative tools or research prototypes.

At the conference, the work described in the extended abstract will be presented as a poster or as a demo. We seek demos that explicitly give the audience the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with these technologies or which demonstrate interactively how a requirements engineering tool, method or technique can be applied (e.g., participants may try out the tools in an experiment-like and role-playing setting).

We particularly encourage the submission of posters or demos that are augmented with:

  • A live demo of proposed requirements engineering tools;
  • Video samples from industrial or educational application of requirements engineering techniques;
  • Games exploring the main concepts of the requirement engineering tool, method, or technique; or
  • Examples of the use of rich media in requirements engineering, including requirements visualizations, multimedia requirements documents, scenarios, storyboards, and vision/concept materials.

Submission Process

Poster and Demos authors are invited to submit:

  1. original extended abstracts (max 2 pages) that have not been submitted for review or publication elsewhere. Extended abstracts for demos should describe tools, techniques, or methods for requirements engineering, including contributions, and how the work relates to other industrial or research efforts.
  2. an annex (max 2 pages) explaining clearly how the work described in the extended abstract is to be presented at the conference. The annex should emphasize interaction potential and explaining how an engaging participant experience will be achieved. It may contain images of screenshots, URL leading to more information about the work, e.g., a preliminary version of 1-minute video clip for a poster or demo. Extended abstracts for both posters and demos must be written in English and conform to the IEEE formatting instructions. The abstracts may include a small number of references, and helpful figures. The extended abstract and its annex must be submitted as one file in pdf format via Easy Chair, the total length of which must not exceed 2 + 2 pages.

Review Process

Poster and demo submissions will be reviewed by 3 reviewers, and based on:

  • the quality, relevance, originality, significance, and soundness of the contribution presented in the extended abstract;
  • the visual and pedagogic quality of the poster or demo; and
  • potential for fostering interaction with the audience. Both extended abstract and annex are considered in the review process.

Inspiration for Creating Posters


An award will be given to the best poster and demo presentation respectively.
