Brief Bio
Pericles Loucopoulos is Professor of Information Systems in the Business School, Loughborough University, UK. He began his career in the City of London where he was responsible for delivering systems for financial applications. He moved to Manchester in 1984 to take up an academic appointment at the University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology (UMIST) where in 1990 he was elected to the post of Professor in Information Systems Engineering in the Department of Computation. He has taught at Université de Paris I – Sorbonne, the University of the Aegean, the Delhi Institute of Technology and the Athens University of Economics and Business and has acted as scientific expert for U.K., Greek, Italian, Austrian, and Swiss Governmental institutions. His research work focuses on supporting the transformation of large, complex and dynamic enterprise systems through the provision of information systems. Theoretical results derived from his research have been applied on industrial scale problems in a variety of domains, such as banking, utilities, large-scale sports events etc. For his work he has received the 2005 OR Society’s President Medal and the Inform Society’s Edelman Laureate Medal. He is the co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Requirements Engineering, associate editor of Information Systems and of the Journal of Database Management and serves on the Editorial Board of 10 other journals.


Much of Requirements Engineering (RE) research and practice has traditionally focused on artifacts on methods, techniques and tools that help capture, share, represent, analyze, negotiate, and prioritize requirements as a basis for design decisions and interventions. However, the environment in which RE is being practiced is changing dramatically from one where the focus was on the engineering of individual systems and components towards the generation, adaptation and maintenance of software-intensive ecosystems consisting of software, hardware, and human and organizational agents.

We invite papers addressing issues of RE with particular emphasis on the intertwining of software and enterprise systems in any of the following areas detailed below.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Legal Requirements
  • Security Requirements
  • Embedded and real-time systems
  • Enterprise systems
  • Service and cloud computing
  • Elicitation, analysis, verification, validation and traceability
  • Prototyping, simulation and animation
  • Modelling requirements
  • Using requirements patterns
  • Innovations in practice through the use of RE techniques, and tools
  • Reflections and lessons learned from industrial use of RE techniques and tools
Paper Submission
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the topics listed above.
Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are available at: Paper Templates
