Requirements engineering for ’systems of systems’ is an emerging area of research which is critical to many complex challenges we face today. Key industries include transportation, hospital networks, smart buildings and smart grids, defense systems, as well as systems from many other domains.

Are YOU doing interesting work with requirements for such systems? The RESS (Requirements Engineering for Systems of Systems) workshop at RE’11 is looking for contributions addressing issues, challenges, and solutions related to requirements engineering for such systems. Please consider submitting a paper describing your work and ideas!

All papers (4-page position papers, 6-page experience reports, or 8-10 page full papers) must be submitted by May 16. The full CFP (call for papers) is online at The workshop will be held on Aug. 30, 2011 in beautiful Trento, Italy as part of the RE’11 Conference - see for more information.
