* Call for Papers, Workshop Proposals, Tutorial Proposals
* 2nd Intl. Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE)
* August 27-30, 2007
* Munich, Germany
* http://www.icgse.org <http://www.icgse.org/>
The globalization of software development is pervasive in today's IT and software industry. The diversity of culture and communication and the dispersion over time and space require novel techniques, tools, and practices from many disciplines to overcome numerous difficulties and to take advantage of rare opportunities such environments entail.
The International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) will bring together researchers and practitioners to explore the state-of-the art in global software development. The previous conference (sponsored by the IEEE) held in 2006 attracted a wide and vigorous participation from industry and academia.
The ICGSE 2007 conference includes:
* Technical Conference
The deadline for submissions in all three categories is Feb. 15, 2007
All information summarizing the conference series as well as the Call for Papers, Tutorial Proposals and Workshop Proposals can be found in the combined PDF at http://www.inf.pucrs.br/icgse/materials/icgse-2007-cfp.pdf <http://www.inf.pucrs.br/icgse/materials/icgse-2007-cfp.pdf>

Technical Conference Papers
Research papers, Industrial practice papers and Short papers describing original unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual and experimental research and practice are invited on topics including, but not limited to:
* The globalization experience: benefits of global development,
effective business models, offshoring versus nearshoring, offshore-outsourcing vs. internal offshoring, strategic versus tactical approaches.
* Communication, coordination, collaboration and knowledge management
for distributed software engineering.
* Managing diversity in global software projects and teams (cultural,
technical, social, and organizational).
* Empirical studies of distributed teams.
* 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.
* Requirements engineering and distributed client-supplier
relationships. Architecture design and testing in distributed software projects.
* Managing distributed software projects: Planning, business case,
team building, monitoring, reviewing, and reporting.
* Working with globally distributed contractors: Vendor selection,
contracting, supplier management.
* Teaching global software development.

Tutorial proposals by scientists and practitioners working in the field of global software development can be submitted. Tutorials must be designed as half-day (four hour) sessions, including a 30 minute break at their midpoint or full-day (two four hour sessions with breaks for coffee and lunch). Tutorial proposals should be submitted to the ICGSE 2007 Tutorials Chair: Bernd Bruegge, Technical University Munich, Applied Software Engineering ([log in to unmask]).

The purpose of ICSGE workshops is to provide an informal setting for participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to develop community in this fast-moving, rapidly developing, multi-disciplinary field of global software engineering. We encourage a diversity of workshops, including those that bring together inter-disciplinary approaches to global software engineering, support the interaction of research and industry in this area. The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers. Workshops can vary in length from a half-day to a full-day. Proposals should be submitted (.DOC, .ODT or PDF format) to the ICGSE 2007 Workshops
Chair: Brian Fitzgerald, Lero - the Irish Software Engineering Centre, ([log in to unmask]).
