Recent social movements recorded a strong tendency on the need to explicitly consider the opening of information through systems that are of interest to the citizen. This openness towards to the access of information is a central theme in the study of the concept of Transparency

The still fresh Brazilian Law of Information Access reflects this movement and brings a number of challenges for the development of systems that need to deal with open information. These challenges are present in several areas of research interest, with strong impact on building systems that may handle this new demand.

Open data, usability oriented to the citizen, accessibility, information presentation, information source and information confidence are some of the new requirements that systems will have to meet. Discuss them in a software context that will support these systems, it is important so that we can have an interdisciplinary vision for a challenge of this magnitude. The challenge applies both in the use of systems to provide transparency, as in the architecture of the systems itself that should be transparent.

WTranS Workshop aims to aggregate researchers with diverse interests in several areas, to discuss how to address these challenges in order to guide the creation of methods, techniques and tools that can give effective support in the development/evolution of systems to meet transparency demands.

Promote WTranS third Edition inside the software engineering community is a proactive proposal, as was done in previous editions: I WTranS in the CBSoft (2013) and II WTranS in the SBSI (2014). As the market push for more transparency in information and processes by both government agencies and private organizations, professional of systems and, particularly, the software developer, will have to deal with different non-functional requirements to meet this demand.

Discuss the perspective of how research deal with these new challenges is the central goal of our III Workshop on Systems Transparency (III WTranS) which will take place on August 19 in one of the main SBC events SBC, the SBQS (Brazilian Symposium on Software Quality).
