Workshop Format

RE4P² 2016 is a ½-day workshop held before the RefsQ’16 conference. The workshop consists of two 1.5 hour tracks. The workshop starts with a presentation of the public Smart Offer and Abacus projects that focus on the precontract phase and the the problem of cost estimation in this phase. After this four to six papers are presented. We plan to use themes and sharp statements as the main drivers for discussions. Each presentation is up to 20 minutes long and is followed by a discussion.

We expect about 15-20 participants, and presenters from academia and industry, based on merit of the accepted papers. The quality of speakers and presentations will be achieved through a strong PC and by inviting academic and industry representatives through the recommendations made by the PC.
