Conference Overview

The 12th IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering
(ICGSE 2017) in conjunction with ICSE 2017, brings together researchers and
practitioners to share their research findings, experiences, and new ideas
on diverse themes related to global software engineering. Inspired on the
wellestablished ICGSE conference series, ICGSE 2017 aims to further promote
the integration between industry and academia. The collegial atmosphere
welcomes those looking to discuss new ideas and find new research

Submissions must be related to global software engineering; topics include

Cross-Site Collaboration
  Challenges of team building
  Collaboration, including communication, coordination, and cooperation
  Social and human aspects of software development
  Cultural Diversity

GSE as a Business Strategy and Innovation

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Submissions are invited for papers describing unpublished, original work,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

* Research papers: Papers that describe theoretical frameworks, technical
solutions, or empirical studies. Empirical studies are welcome to report
empirical evidence ranging from controlled experiments to case studies and
from quantitative to qualitative studies, including those that use
mixed-methods. Full (10 pages) and Short papers (5 pages).

* Industry papers: Papers that describe problems or challenges encountered,
lessons learned, or solutions implemented on industrial global software
engineering environments. Short papers (5 pages).

* Training and Education papers: Papers that report on training or
educational studies or experiences on global software engineering,
recommendations or lessons learned on the organization on GSE courses, GSE
curricula, required infrastructure, etc. Full (10 pages) and Short papers
(5 pages).

* Ignite Talk proposal: Ignite talks are meant to present ideas and
generate discussions that will push forward the field of GSE in an
unexpected manner. Share with us your novel, ground breaking GSErelated
message as an Ignite presentation. Tell us about tools, processes, tips,
tricks, war stories, etc. Submit proposals of an Ignite Talk as a Title and
Abstract (500 words maximum). The contributions are less scientific in
their nature, but should be argued in a compelling way in a 5 min slot
accompanied of 20 auto-advance slides.

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

This is the first year that ICGSE 2017 will be collocated with ICSE 2017,
to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Buenos Aires, the capital of
Argentina, is one of the most important business and cultural centres of
South America. Recognized as a cosmopolitan city that mixes an European
atmosphere with strong Latin American roots, vibrant nightlife, tango and
incredible food and wine. Buenos Aires, combined with ICGSE, makes an ideal
destination to inspire and be inspired. Join us in this beautiful city for
two days of insightful discussions!
