Accepted Papers

The Workshop on Requirements Engineering 2021 (WER 2021) is now in its twentieth-fourth edition. This series of workshops on the area started in 1998 as a meeting of the Ibero-American requirements engineering community. However, since then, it has attracted attention from researchers and practitioners from other parts of the world. The WER format promotes discussion and knowledge exchange between the academy and industry members. As in the last editions, this one will also feature invited lectures from well-known researchers and practitioners, and tutorials.

The requirements engineering works listed below were accepted for presentation at the WER2021 as part of the tracks:

The final versions of the submissions must be accompanied with a video of the presentation of the work.
All accepted papers will be published with Open Access through the WERpapers repository.
