The 28th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’20) continues the effort of the RE series by holding a posters and tool demos session to promote interaction and discussion among conference participants.

Submitting a poster to the RE will give authors/you the opportunity to:

  • Share and discuss your ideas and work at an international event, which can act as a stimulus for eventual publications,
  • Gain experience in submitting and presenting posters, and
  • Network and collaborate with peers.

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: Requirements Engineering for a Digital World. 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 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 the 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 Instructions

Poster and Demos authors are invited to submit:

Extended abstracts for both posters and demos must be written in English and conform to the IEEE formatting instructions. The extended abstract 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.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register to and attend the conference in order to present their paper.
