Dear Sir or Madam

I would appreciate if this call for participation was forwarded to
the CPHC list.

Many thanks in advance,
Sebastian Uchitel
=======================


The Requirements Engineering Specialist Group of the British Computer 
Society will organise a tutorial on "Creativity, the Path to Innovative 
Requirements on October 9, 2003 at Imperial College London. Please find

Abstract
--------

Creativity, the Path to Innovative Requirements

Where do requirements come from? The optimistic view is that the customers 
or users of a system tell the requirements engineer what they want. For a 
variety of reasons, this is rarely the case. People don't know exactly what 
they want, they do not know what is possible, or they cannot express their 
real needs, or because they think in terms of current solutions or they 
cannot envisage the future. Requirements engineering is increasingly a 
creative process in which stakeholders and designers work together to 
create ideas for new systems that are eventually expressed as requirements.
This half-day tutorial illustrates how we use innovative techniques to 
imagine, create, discover and formalise requirements. We also illustrate 
how creativity can be used in requirements engineering and provide a guide 
for running creative design workshops. This is an interactive hands-on 
tutorial based on experience in running creative workshops for air traffic 
management systems for Eurocontrol and NATS.

Audience
--------
Academics who want to understand more about the changing nature of RE. 
Practitioners who want to learn how to use creative techniques in the RE 
process. Project managers who want to understand more about the 
requirements process. Due to the hands-on nature of this tutorial the 
number of participants is limited to 24.

Instructors
-----------
Suzanne Robertson  - The Atlantic Systems Guild, London.
Neil Maiden  - The Centre for HCI Design, City University, London.

Bios
----
Suzanne Robertson is co-author of Mastering the Requirements Process 
(Addison-Wesley 1999) a book that provides guidance on finding requirements 
and writing them so that all the stakeholders can understand them.
She has more than 30 years experience in systems specification and 
building. Her courses on requirements, systems analysis, design and problem 
solving are well known for their innovative workshops and business games. 
Current work includes research and consulting on stakeholders' rights and 
responsibilities, the specification and reuse of requirements and 
techniques for assessing requirements specifications. The product of this 
research is Volere, a complete requirements process and template for 
assessing requirements quality, and for specifying business requirements. 
In 1983, in partnership with Tom De Marco, Tim Lister, Steve McMenamin, 
John Palmer and James Robertson, Suzanne founded the Atlantic Systems 
Guild. http://www.systemsguild.com. The guild is a New York, London, and 
(with the addition of Peter Hruschka) Aachen, based think-tank that 
researches system development techniques. Suzanne is author of many papers 
on systems engineering, she also speaks at many conferences. She is a 
member of IEEE and the Australian Computer Society and on the committee of 
the British Computer Society's Requirements Group. She is editor of the 
Requirements column in IEEE Software magazine.

Neil Maiden is Professor of Systems Engineering and Head of the Centre for 
Human-Computer Interface Design, an independent research department in City 
University's School of Informatics. He received a PhD in Computer Science 
from City University in 1992. He is and has been a principal and 
co-investigator of several EPSRC- and EU-funded research projects including 
SIMP, CREWS and BANKSEC. He is also founder and manager of City 
University's SAP R/3 Laboratory. His research interests include frameworks 
for requirements acquisition and negotiation, scenario-based systems 
development, component-based software engineering, ERP packages, 
requirements reuse and more effective transfer of academic research results 
into software engineering practice. Neil has over 80 journal and conference 
publications. He is also co-founder and treasurer of the British Computer 
Society Requirements Engineering Specialist Group. Centre details are 
available from www-hcid.soi.city.ac.uk. His details are available at 
http://www-hcid.soi.city.ac.uk/pNeilmaiden.html.
