This Workshop has been held since 1998 and its main objective is the consolidation of an Ibero-American research community in Requirements Engineering. Between 2013 and 2017 the WER was organized as a CIbSE  track  . In 2018, the Workshop will run as an independent event again . Thus, the CIbSE Requirements Engineering  track  and the Requirements Engineering Workshop are complementary options to disseminate the research and practice of Requirements Engineering, by and for the Ibero-American community.
