The growing attention being paid to stakeholders' needs and desires reflects the growing importance of requirements engineering (RE) in software and systems development. This introduction reviews the RE process: identifying the stakeholders in a project, determining who and how important they are, prioritizing the identified stakeholder roles, and selecting representative individuals or groups from the identified and prioritized stakeholder roles with whom the development team can elicit and validate system requirements. The authors then mention each article in the issue in the context of today's latest thinking on RE. This article introduces a special issue on stakeholders in requirements engineering.
