UsARE 2014 Second International Workshop on Usability and Accessibility focused Requirements Engineering

The IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference is the premier international forum for researchers, industrial practitioners, educators, and students to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, results and challenges in the field of requirements engineering (RE). The UsARE workshop focuses on RE and HCI and provides a platform for discussing issues that are relevant for both fields. The first workshop (UsARE 2012) was held on June 04, 2012 in conjunction with ICSE 2012 at Zurich, Switzerland. This year, UsARE 2014 will be held in conjunction with the 22nd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2014) at Karlskrona, Sweden on August 25, 2014.

Usability and accessibility issues are common causes for software failing to meet user requirements. However, requirements engineers often focus on functional requirements and may not fully elicit usability and accessibility requirements. This high risk practice can lead to project and software failure and it is well known that improving the usability and accessibility requirements during development is relatively costly and time consuming. Targeting these concerns, the workshop addresses the integration of system usability and accessibility requirements into the requirements engineering process and processes for managing and controlling the evaluation of these requirements in a systematic way.

The UsARE 2014 workshop strongly encourages submissions that focus on mobile and distributed app and service development, but submissions on other relevant topics are also welcome.
