Welcome to the RE-Pract Page!

The relevance of Requirements Engineering (RE) research to practitioners is vital for a long-term dissemination of research results to everyday practice. To understand better how industry practitioners perceive the practical relevance of RE research, we have initiated the RE-Pract project, an international collaboration conducting an empirical study to discover the lines of current research that are more promising for practitioners, and identify the topics and areas of future research (or fine-tune the existing ones) in RE. This project opts for a replication of previous work done in two different domains and relies on survey research. To this end, we have designed a questionnaire-based survey and sent it to several hundred industry practitioners at various companies around the world, asking them to rate their perceived practical relevance of the research described in a sample set of RE papers published at RE, ICSE, FSE, ESEC/FSE, ESEM and REFSQ conferences.

This project is coordinated by Prof. Xavier Franch (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), Prof. Daniel Mendez (Blekinge Institute of Technology,Sweden; and withfortiss GmbH, Germany) and Prof. Andreas Vogelsang (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany).
