Conference Overview and Theme
Theme: Software Bridging Distances Between People

The 11th IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering
(ICGSE 2016) brings together researchers and practitioners to share their
findings and experiences in addressing the challenges of globally
distributed teams. These challenges result from distances of various kinds,
including cultural, linguistic, and dispersion over time and space.

ICGSE 2016 will focus on how the challenges of Global Software Engineering
are being addressed and resolved within the different practice areas such
as requirements, design, construction, testing, maintenance, process,
methods, management, etc. We invite both academic and industrial
communities to contribute to this flagship conference in global software
and IT.

Submissions must be related to global software engineering; topics include
but are not limited to:

* Cloud computing and crowdsourcing
* Communication, coordination, and control
* Design thinking and global product design
* Education
* Industrial offshoring and outsourcing experiences
* Industry case studies of all topics in this list
* Lean and agile development
* Managing and working with suppliers and contractors
* Methods and processes
* Mining software repositories and software analytics
* Open source software communities
* Security and privacy
* Social and human aspects of software development
* Social network analysis
* Software architecture
* Software business model innovation
* Software evolution and maintenance
* Software project management
* Software testing
* Strategic issues in distributed development
* Tools and infrastructure support

Paper Submission
Submissions are invited for papers describing unpublished, original work,
in the following categories:

* Research papers that describe theoretical frameworks, technical
solutions, or empirical studies. Maximum length 10 pages.

* Industry papers that describe problems, lessons learned, solutions
implemented, challenges encountered, and case studies on industrial global
software engineering environments. Maximum length 5 pages.

* Short papers that describe new ideas or work-in-progress. More details on
the evaluation criteria and presentation format are available on the
conference website. Maximum length 5 pages.

* Proposals for workshops that provide a forum for researchers and industry
participants to discuss topics in global software engineering research and
practice. More details on the website. Maximum length 4 pages.

* Proposals for tutorials.

* Doctoral symposium.

Papers should be submitted as PDF files which conform to the two-column
IEEE CS Press format. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings
by IEEE CS Press and the IEEE CS Digital Library.

At least 1 author of each accepted paper must register for the conference
and present the paper in person at the conference or the paper will not be
included in the proceedings.

Further information and updates will be available on the conference website

ICGSE 2016 will be held at the University of California, Irvine, located in
the heart of Orange County in sunny southern California, USA.

Orange County is a leading tech cluster in the US and is home to a thriving
technical and professional community that is full of opportunities. Orange
County is known for its enjoyable lifestyle supported by natural beauty,
including a scenic coastline and fantastic beaches, diverse communities,
cultural attractions, world-class restaurants, and famous theme parks.
