Rejected / accepted papers and PC Meeting

Hey Hey!

Unfortunately, our paper did not make it to REFSQ 2017 this time. Congrats to the accepted paper, and good luck for the others!

I was at the REFSQ PC meeting a couple of weeks ago, early December and it was a really exciting new experience for me as pat of the community of researchers. And I’m proud and honored to be part of the RE@Next! 2017, a special track of the RE 2017 conference ! So consider to submit there as well !!
