RE Cares is a series of RE sessions and hackathon to work with real  stakeholders to elicit and specify requirements, as well as to develop an initial design and prototype early features for a mobile app to assist field workers of Goodwill's Stand Against Violence Everyday  (SAVE) division of the Gun Violence Intervention (GVI) organization to  collect and store data when on site with a fellow/client or at an  incident site, as well as an application to support data analytics for assessing the  outcomes of the efforts of the SAVE team.

All RE participants are welcome to join RE Cares. We particularly encourage students to join us. Check back here as we start to post early requirements and domain descriptions.


RE Cares is the initiative, along with the 2021 Requirements Engineering conference, intended to help society by adopting the latest software engineering research and practice as applied to important societal problems.

RE Cares is a new undertaking to apply our RE expertise and beyond to social issues and/or philanthropic undertakings in order to show we care and to "do good".

Workshop Format

RE Cares is a "Requirements Engineering for Social Good" event designed to help an organization local to the conference venue start the process of building software for a project with a positive societal impact.  

Participants will apply their expertise in assisting to build specifications, to develop initial design, and to prototype a few features.

Beyond the Workshop: RE Cares is a Co-Located Event

After the Monday workshop, RE Cares will continue with a follow-on requirements elicitation session and a design session on Wednesday and an all day hackathon on Thursday.
