Call for Workshop Proposals

A series of workshops will be held in conjunction with RE'06 to encourage interaction between academia and industry, researchers and practitioners. Workshop topics should be in line with the conference topics.
Workshop proposals should clearly state the topic and overall objectives of the workshop; a short curriculum vitae of the proposed organizer(s) should also be included.
We are particularly interested in workshop proposals that cover topics that may have controversial viewpoints or are new to the requirements engineering field, where focused dialogue among participants may lead to interesting follow-on research, empirical investigations or industrial practice improvement.
Note that the workshops are intended to stimulate and prepare the workshop participants for the main conference in order to promote dialogue among participants before, during, and after the conference.
