The 2nd Workshop on Natural Language Processing for Requirements Engineering (NLP4ARE) was finished yesterday, and of course we were there. 1 keynote, 13 talks, five posters, adn four tool exhibitions by industrial vendors. It was a intense day!

You missed out? Don’t worry, the NLP4ARE organization was stream the event on Twitter with pictures and a lot of information about the talks. There was even time to take some pictures:
