Requirements Engineering Track, 10th Edition
at the 32nd Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC-2017)
Marrakech, Morocco
April 3-7, 2017

For over thirty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world.

The 10th Edition of the Requirements Engineering Track (RE-Track'17) is part of the 32nd ACM Symposium on Applied Computing. SAC 2017 is hosted by the University of Quebec at Montreal, Canada, the University Cadi Ayyad (UCA) of Marrakech, Morocco, the Mohamed V University of Rabat - Mohammadia School Of Engineers (EMI), Rabat Morocco and the National School of Applied Sciences (ENSA) of Kenitra, Morocco.

The objective of this track is to explore different advances in Requirements Engineering in a general way, its relation with different areas, reducing the gap between software engineering solutions and the way one specific domain of knowledge was seen up to given point.


  • September 15, 2016 October 07th, 2016: Submission of papers and SRC research abstracts (strict deadline)
  • November 18th, 2016: Notification of paper and SRC acceptance/rejection
  • December 2nd, 2016: Camera-ready copies of accepted papers/SRC
  • December 10th, 2016: Author registration due date

    Authors are invited to submit in all areas of Requirements Engineering. The program committee will blindly review submissions to that track. The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in third person. This is to facilitate blind review. The paper should not exceed 6 pages in the ACM format. Please find the template here:

    Please note that the maximum page length for the conference is 6 pages (without extra-fee), 8 is the maximum (with extra-fee). Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper formats, such as US letter and A4.

    Papers should not be submitted to more than one ACM-SAC track. Paper submissions should be done electronically through the following websites:
    - (for regular papers)
    - (for SRC papers)

    Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

    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 2017 Tracks. Please visit SAC 2017 website at
