    Abstract

    Requirements Engineering (RE) is a socially constructed activity and as such it includes the creation, development, assessment and communication of innovative ideas. An idea can take the form of a thought related either to the analysis of a problem, or to the search of a solution to this problem, and it can be concrete or abstract. Creative thinking is what RE professionals tacitly or explicitly use in their RE processes to conceptualize smart solutions to problems. RE demands the stakeholders to create visions of a future software system and to imagine all its implications. Creativity techniques that have been practiced in other fields can support this creative part of RE. The CreaE series of workshops brings together RE practitioners and researches who are interested in discussing the role of creativity in RE and the ways in which creativity techniques from other disciplines can be leveraged in RE. CreaRE 2010 aimed at creating awareness of the importance of research on creativity in RE and initiated the conversation on experiences of applying creativity techniques in support of RE activities. CreaRE 2012 builds upon this foundation and extends the discussion on creativity in RE by actively fostering the exchange of ideas among members of diverse communities that are engaged in RE research and practice. CreaRE 2012 united an audience reaching out to areas such as design, theatre improvisation, stakeholder interactions, studies on cultural heritage and multimedia systems. This report describes the results of the workshop.
