Requirements Engineering (RE) lies at the heart of software development.  It is the branch of systems engineering concerned with the real-world goals for, functions of, and constraints on software-intensive systems. It is concerned with how these factors are taken into account during the implementation and maintenance of the system, from software specifications and architectures up to final test cases. RE requires a variety and richness of skills, processes, methods, techniques and tools. In addition, diversity arises from different application domains ranging from business information systems to real-time process control systems, from traditional to web-based systems as well as from the perspective being system families or not.

The conference will include a technical and an industrial paper track, with refereed papers describing novel research, industrial problem statements, experience reports and surveys. The program also includes keynote speakers, state-of-the-art and practice tutorials, and an exhibition, which includes companies with RE tools and services, book publishers, and other related exhibitors. We also will have several associated workshops, including a doctoral workshop for PhD students, as well as research demos and tools. The RE'03 conference will provide an opportunity for practitioners and researchers to share ideas and experiences, while enjoying the beautiful Monterey with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. Enjoy the spectacular sights of Monterey Peninsula at Big Sur, explore Point Lobos in Carmel-by-the-Sea and visit Carmel Mission.
