Software and IT industries are today truly global – and so is software engineering. The diversity of culture and the dispersion over time and space require novel techniques, tools, and practices from many disciplines to overcome challenges and to take advantage of opportunities global software engineering offers.
The 6th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) will bring together researchers and practitioners interested in exploring how globally distributed teams work and how the challenges can be met. The ICGSE 2011 organizing committee invites the academic and industrial communities to contribute to the expertise of the international global software engineering community. Conference attendees will get an opportunity to explore the current state of practice in this area as well as new thoughts and trends that will shape the future. In 2011, to increase the focus on Industry, we are including an industry track, for which papers will be separately reviewed.
Paper submission | Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
- Strategic issues in distributed development: business models (offshoring, nearshoring, outsourcing etc.), business case development, work distribution models, supplier selection and management, cost-benefit-risk analysis
- Managing distributed software development: planning, team building, project and SLA management, managing diversity, measurements and evaluation
- Methods and tools for distributed software development: requirements engineering, design, coding, verification, testing and maintenance
- Communication, coordination and collaboration
- Knowledge management in distributed development
- Getting started with global software engineering
- Empirical studies of distributed teams and lessons learnt
- Software Process paradigms in the global environment (planned, agile etc)
- Teaching global software development
