CHASE 2019
Call for Papers 12th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human
Aspects of Software Engineering

Feb 1st, 2019 – Workshop paper submissions
Mar 1st, 2019 – Notification
Mar 15th, 2019 – Camera-ready deadline
May 27th, 2019 – Workshop


The software industry is experiencing dramatic changes: distributed
software development done in an agile way; agile methodologies scaled to
meet the requirements to support projects with several hundred developers;
and frequently deploying software which leads to continuous development
practices. As software engineering practices evolve, the Cooperative and
Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE) change as well. It is crucial
to understand current and emerging software practices, processes, and tools
and their impact on important local and global issues. In turn, this
enables us to design tools and support mechanisms that improve software
creation and maintenance, customer communication, and the use and evolution
of deployed software systems.
Researchers and practitioners have long recognized the need to investigate
these aspects. However, their articles have been scattered across many
conferences and communities. This workshop provides a unified forum for
discussing high quality research studies, models, methods, and tools for
human and cooperative aspects of software engineering. We provide a meeting
place for academic, industry, and practitioner communities interested in
this area, and for those who are curious to see what it is all about. The

Topics of interest are about the human, cooperative, and collaborative
aspects of software engineering such as:
*  Software design or engineering philosophies, practices, and tools;
*  Adapting tools or processes to accommodate a range of organizational and
cultural situations;
*  Sociological, cultural, psychological, or cognitive aspects of software
design or engineering;
*  Managerial or organizational aspects focused on people and their
*  Teamwork, collaboration, or cooperation in or across various development
teams and methodologies;
*  Community-based software development (e.g., Open Source, crowdsourcing,
*  Coordination and knowledge sharing at different scales (e.g.,
distributed teams, semi-anonymous collaboration, “borderless” teams);
*  Stakeholder participation within and across phases;
*  Processes and tools to support communication, collaboration, and
cooperation among stakeholders.

Possible contributions include:
*  Empirical studies of software engineering teams or individuals in situ;
*  Laboratory studies of individual or team software engineering behavior;
*  Novel tools or processes motivated by observed needs or empirical
*  Use of analysis techniques or frameworks from disciplines outside
software engineering, applied to empirical software engineering topics;
*  Meta-research topics.

* We welcome 8-page full papers, 4-page short papers, and 2-page notes to
enable attendees at different stages in their research process to
participate in the workshop. Page limits include references.

* Papers should be submitted through easychair (
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=chase2019) according to the IEEE
formatting instructions (

* Accepted papers will be hosted on a password-protected, CHASE-hosted,
collaboration site to foster discussion prior to the workshop. The official
publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings
are made available by IEEE. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the
first day of ICSE 2019. The official publication date affects the deadline
for any patent filings related to published work.

* We plan to have presentations for all papers. Short papers and notes will
be presented in shorter formats with accompanying posters. All interested
parties are welcome to register, even without an accepted paper.

* The complete list will be available at the workshop’s website. (
