Event: Best of RESG Research 2014

Update: Links to slides from the presentations are now available in the schedule below.

The Best of RESG Research 2014 is a free one day mini-conference where we will celebrate the outstanding research published by RESG group members and close colleagues during 2014.

The programme includes work published in the most important research conferences and journals in our field over the last 12 months. This includes six papers presented at the International Conference on Software Engineering in Hyderabad (India), four papers from the International Requirements Engineering Conference in Karlskrona (Sweden), and one paper published in ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology.

We invite all students, researchers, and professionals interested in the latest developments in requirements engineering and related topics to attend the event. It is a unique opportunity to attend state-of-the-art research talks and meet most of the UK requirements engineering research community in a single day without having to travel around the world. We hope this end of year celebration will contribute to growing the requirements engineering research community, to strengthening interactions between requirements research and industry, and to increasing even further the quality of our future research.


Thursday 4 December 2014, 9am – 5:30pm


BCS headquarter, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA
