Call for RE: Next! contributions

The call for RE: Next! papers is closed. Information on the accepted papers can be found here.

RE'15 will host a special track devoted to the presentation of work currently being carried out by RE researchers around the world. We look for short communications (2 to 6 pages) that describe the current status of ongoing research. The goal of the RE: Next! track is to provide a venue to present your work to academic colleagues and potential industry partners and to receive early feedback.

A good RE: Next! contribution will:

  • provide in succinct form the information that you would convey in a seminar about your ongoing research work to a fellow academic visiting your department;
  • present the long-term directions and prospects of your research endeavours;
  • serve as a trigger for establishing new collaborations with like-minded colleagues;
  • lead to a full research paper, to be submitted to the next RE conference!

RE: Next! contributions will be evaluated based on clarity and interest to the conference attendees. Communications need not include a full literature survey (but a few pointers could be given where appropriate), and they are not expected to provide final results with a full validation. In contrast, the interest is in timely sharing of current research work and prospects.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest are the same as for the Research track. If your contribution refers to a completed and well-developed piece of research, you should submit it to the main Research track instead. RE: Next! is not about unfinished papers or low-quality results, but about your current work, and what you will do in the course of next year(s) to make it a breakthrough in RE.

Submission Instructions

Contributions must describe original work that has not been previously published or submitted elsewhere. Submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE formatting instructions.
