The increasing globalization of software industry demands an investigation of Requirements Engineering (RE) in multisite software development organizations. This paper advocates that the study of requirements engineering in geographically distributed software development is not only important but challenging at the same time. A research agenda to develop a model of impact of distance on requirements engineering collaborative activities is proposed. A field investigation of RE in a multi-site development organization is described to illustrate th.e effects of stakeholders' geographical distribution on requirements collaborative activities as well as specific challenges that distance placed in conducting this research itself.
