International Conference on Global Software Engineering ICGSE'06
Costao do Santinno, Florianopolis, BRAZIL 16-19 October, 2006www.icgse.org Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society-pending
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Communication, coordination, collaboration and knowledge management for distributed software engineering.
Requirements engineering and distributed client-supplier relationships.
Architecture design and testing in distributed software projects.
Collaboration infrastructure to support distributed development teams, e.g. change management, quality control, validation, project management, sharing of documents, online reviews, decision support.
Process needs and proven solutions for effective and productive distributed software engineering.
Managing distributed software projects: planning, business case, team building, monitoring, reviewing, and reporting.
The globalization experience: benefits of global development, effective business models, offshoring versus nearshoring, offshore-outsourcing versus internal offshoring, strategic versus tactical approaches.
Managing diversity in global software projects and teams (technical, social and organizational).
Working with globally distributed contractors: vendor selection, contracting, supplier management.
Teaching global software development.
Effectively engineering software in a global context is a key competitive advantage in today's IT and software industry. However, the increased globalization of software development creates software engineering challenges due to the impact of time zones, diversity of culture and communication, or distance. This requires novel and effective techniques and practices to achieve intended productivity and quality targets.
ICGSE'06 is the International Conference that aims at bringing together researchers and industry practitioners to explore both the state-of-the art and the state-of-the-practice in software engineering for global software development. The conference commences a series of annual international conferences in this emerging area of research and practice.
