Requirements Engineering Track, 14th Edition

at the 36th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (ACM SAC'2021)
Gwangju, Korea
March 22-March 26, 2021

The 14th Edition of the Requirements Engineering Track (RE-Track'21) is part of the 36th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (ACM SAC). The ACM SAC has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world.

The objective of this track is to explore advances in Requirements Engineering to cope with the increasing demand for better, faster, and more usable software systems in heterogeneous and multidisciplinary environments.


  • Sept 28, 2020, Mon, 11:59 pm UTC+0.00. (new deadline) : Submission of regular papers and SRC abstracts
  • Nov 24, 2020 : Notification of acceptance/rejection of papers, posters and SRC
  • Dec 14, 2020 : Camera-ready copies of accepted papers
  • Dec 14, 2020 : Author registration due date

    Authors are invited to submit in all areas of Requirements Engineering. The program committee will blindly review all the submissions. Therefore, authors' names, addresses or any other information leading to the identification of the author is forbidden, and self-references should be in the third person.

    The maximum page length for the conference is 8 pages without extra-fee, and 10 with a fee per page. Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper formats, such as US letter and A4.

    Paper submissions should be done electronically through the following website:

    Please be reminded that papers should not be submitted to more than one ACM-SAC track.

    According to ACM SAC 2021 registration policy: Paper registration is mandatory to allow the inclusion of the work in the conference proceedings and in the ACM digital library. An author or a proxy must present the paper. No-show of registered papers and posters will result in their exclusion from the ACM digital library.

    Authors who cannot make on-site presentations due to travel or health restrictions caused by COVID-19 will be allowed to present their materials online.

    Active graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original unpublished and in-progress research work in areas of experimental computing and application development related to SAC 2021 Tracks.

    SRC abstract submissions should be done electronically through the following website:
