Call for Papers and Proposals
4th International Conference on
Software Engineering Approaches For Offshore and Outsourced Development
Peterhof (Saint Petersburg), Russia, 17-18 June 2010
* Abstracts Submissions: February 22nd, 2010 - 23:00, Apia time
* Paper Submissions: March 1st, 2010 - 23:00, Apia time
* Notification of acceptance: April 1st, 2010
* Camera-ready papers due: April 15th, 2010
* Preliminary program: April 15th, 2010
The deadlines are strict.
SEAFOOD 2010 will for the first time take place in Russia, site of a
software outsourcing industry. The conference will be held at Saint
State University in Peterhof (Petrodvorets), near Peter the Great's
Summer Palace. Saint Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in the
and the site of the Hermitage museum, is easily accessible by bus or
and post-conference tours of Saint Petersburg will be available for
participants and their companions.
Industrial software development as practiced today is increasingly
teams cooperate across many different locations. This new state of
in particular the result of software outsourcing and offshoring (see an
on this topic, but exists even in the absence of outsourcing. The software
engineering implications of distributed development are considerable.
SEAFOOD 2010, the fourth in the SEAFOOD series, examines distributed
development from a software engineering perspective. Its goals include:
* Highlighting problems faced by industry and provide a forum to share good
* Spotlighting new processes, models, techniques and tools emerging from
research efforts that are crucial to distributed development, and
opportunity for industry transfer.
* Building a community of educators either offering or planning to offer
software development experiences for students, so as to share project
SEAFOOD 2010 will provide a highly structured and interactive forum for its
participants. The conference will include many practical sessios
industry panel and a educational panel.
We particularly invite high-quality papers that focus on processes,
and tools to understand, communicate and deliver on business needs in
distributed software projects.
Broader topics of interest include, but are certainly not limited to, the
following dimensions of globally distributed software projects:
* Strategic dimensions - scope decisions; cost/benefit analysis; value
propositions; risk assessment and management; vendor selection.
* Process and management dimensions - process models, including distributed
agile; project management; team organization; customer/supplier
and relationship management; supply chain management; knowledge
management; project governance; quality assurance; metrics and
* Development dimensions - requirements engineering; system specification;
architecture; configuration management; traceability; testing;
* Infrastructure dimensions - technology and tooling.
* Social dimensions - effect of cultural differences on communication,
coordination and collaboration; socialisation and community building.
* Foundational dimensions - requirements and constraints that characterise
offshore and outsourced processes; comparative studies of globally
distributed, near-sourced and co-located software development.
We invite original submissions of high quality papers in 3 distinct
* Research papers - technical solutions, empirical studies and survey
Research papers are expected to explain how the problem being
relevant to the conference topics, describe the research approach, and
solution papers are further to include preliminary validation.
* Industry practice papers - country, industry and domain-specific reports.
Industry papers are expected to provide sufficient context for
the challenges and insights, and to make the more general lessons for
software development clear to others.
* Education and training papers - experience and proposal papers. Education
papers are expected to explain the pedagogical goals of the work,
their attainment (or not) and provide guidance for other educators.
In all 3 categories:
* Full papers (up to 15 pages)
* Short/position/vision papers (up to 6 pages)

Pending confirmation by Springer, the SEAFOOD 2010 proceedings will be,
SEAFOOD 2009, a volume in the Springer LNBIP series.
