Bournemouth University research on Computing and Informatics, the Engineering of Social Informatics focus area, achieved a strong presence in the 21st International Working Conference on Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality (REFSQ), which was held from March 23 to March 26, 2015 in Essen, Germany. (Refer to http://refsq.org/2015/).
Our participation included the presentation of three short papers and their posters:
- Alimohammad Shahri, Mahmood Hosseini, Keith Phalp, and Raian Ali. Motivation as a Supplementary Requirement.
- Jingjie Jiang, Keith Phalp, and Raian Ali. Digital Addiction: Gamification for Precautionary and Recovery Requirements.
- Mahmood Hosseini, Alimohammad Shahri, Keith Phalp, and Raian Ali. Transparency as a Requirement.
In addition, our contribution included the presentation of one full paper:
- Raian Ali, Nan Jiang, Keith Phalp, Sarah Muir, and John McAlaney. The Emerging Requirement for Digital Addiction Labels.
The papers were presented by two PGRs, Mahmood Hosseini and Alimohammad Shahri. The topics attracted much attention by fellow researchers who were present in the conference. The follow-up discussions yielded some interesting opportunities for possible collaboration. It was also a great opportunity for knowledge exchange and to maximise the visibility and impact of our research in Computing and Informatics and to demonstrate our vibrant environment.
The research was partially funded by a European FP7 Marie Curie CIG Grant (the SOCIAD Project), the Graduate School of Bournemouth University via the Santander PGR Development Fund and Streetscene Addiction Recovery Ltd (match-sponsor of Jingjie Jiang PhD).
