| Workshop Programme | NEW: Full Papers and Presentations
Over the past decade IT professionals worldwide have witnessed the flourishing of global software development as a result of outsourcing and offshoring. While global software development is attractive with its offer of large talent pools and reduced labour cost, it is not the magic potion to project success. Managers and developers engaged in global software development agree that cross-site, cross-cultural projects “do not just happen.” Rather, projects are confronted by countless challenges, from project set-up, to progress control, to day-to-day communication, and even to managing of cultural conflicts. All of these issues can become serious obstacles that require careful examination and practical solutions.
The goal of the workshop “Global Software Development for the Practitioner” is to provide a forum for researchers and professionals interested in global software development to meet and exchange ideas. In particular, this workshop will take the perspective of the practitioner and focus on tactics and techniques that will help software professionals navigate the challenges in the global development environment.
We solicit submissions that articulate success strategies and carefully-constructed case studies of global projects, including lessons learned, as well as empirical research papers with practical implications. Proposals of development models and techniques that facilitate global software development processes are also of interest. While the primary interest of this workshop is not on innovations of support tools, we also seek contributions that study how software processes and practices are supported and/or affected by such collaborative tools.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
The call for papers is also available in pdf format.
Submissions are strictly limited to a maximum of 7 pages and must conform to the ICSE paper format (See the author information page of the ICSE website for the detailed format).
The submitted papers will be reviewed by members of the program committee and will be selected for presentation based on relevance to the workshop themes, contribution to the state of practice, and potential to generate interesting discussions. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Software Engineering Notes.
