Workshop Description

Global software development (GSD) is increasingly becoming common practice in the software industry, as the ability to develop software at remote sites in projects such as development outsourcing allows organizations to ignore the geographical distance and benefit from access to a qualified resource pool and a reduction in development costs. However, the increased globalization of software development creates software engineering challenges due to the impact of temporal, geographical and cultural differences, and requires development of techniques and technologies to address these issues.

The goal of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to explore both the state-of-the art and the state-of-the-practice in GSD. The workshop will foster interaction between practitioners and researchers and help grow a community of interest in this area. Practitioners experiencing challenges in GSD will share their concerns and successful solutions and learn from research about current investigations. Researchers addressing GSD will gain a better understanding of the key issues facing practitioners and share their work in progress with others in the field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
