The 6th International Workshop on Crowd-Based Requirements Engineering (CrowdRE'22)

15 August 2022
Virtual Conference
In conjunction with RE 2022


The rise of mobile, social, cloud, and crowd-sourcing applications requires Requirements Engineering (RE) to adapt. The traditional methods of RE are very inefficient in situations involving thousands to millions of current and potential users of a (software) product. The crowd is an interesting source for RE because it produces user feedback in texts and usage data. Being able to respond quickly, effectively, and iteratively to the requirements, problems, wishes, and needs identified in user feedback can increase a product’s success. Crowd-Based RE (CrowdRE) seeks to provide RE with suitable means for this crowd paradigm.

The Sixth Workshop on Crowd-Based Requirements Engineering (CrowdRE’22) focuses on Motivation of Users in CrowdRE, and on CrowdRE and Human Values

CrowdRE’22 builds on the successes of its previous editions, which unified the visions into a coherent RE approach (CrowdRE’15), established a roadmap and shared resources (CrowdRE’17), strengthened relationships to artificial intelligence techniques (CrowdRE as special focal topic of AIRE’18), redefined its scope (CrowdRE’19), expanded into digital transformation territory (CrowdRE’20), and strengthened the interface between CrowdRE and industry practice, especially in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic (CrowdRE’21).
