The Second International Workshop on
Crowd-Based Requirements Engineering

September 4, 2017
Lisbon, Portugal
Collocated with RE 2017


CrowdRE 2017 is a full-day workshop held on September 4, 2017 and is collocated with the RE'17 in Lisbon, Portugal at the “Reitoria” of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa.

CrowdRE 2017 includes a keynote, paper presentations, and interactive session. The workshop intends to promote lively discussions between participants from both industry and academia. After each paper presentation, a discussant puts the paper into a scientific perspective, lists contributions, and raises issues and questions for discussions. At the end of each paper track, an open forum will stimulate a lively discussion on the papers, and the proposal of new ideas.

As detailed in the program below, we have allocated a 30 minute slot (15–20 minute presentation, and 10–15 minute discussion) for each solution paper and experience report, and a 20 minute slot (10–15 minute presentation, and 5–10 minute discussion) to each vision paper.
