Resolving the Challenges of Time and Distance

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 all the opportunities global software engineering offers.

The 7th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) brings together researchers and practitioners interested in solving the challenges of globally distributed teams. The ICGSE 2012 organizing committee invites the academic and industrial communities to contribute to the expertise of the international global software engineering community.
Because Global Software Engineering is foremost a practical field, we especially seek industry knowledge. We invite industrial participants to share their observations and experiences in the conference by publishing papers and providing talks about the subject. Industrial experiences can be submitted by means of a half-page abstract. We also invite academic researchers to submit their (preferably empirical) full-length research papers to the conference, as well as educational papers. 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.

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

Authors of selected high-quality papers will be invited to submit an expanded version for a special section on Global Software Engineering in the Empirical Software Engineering Journal, published by Springer.
