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. Global Software Engineering challenges result from
distances of various kinds, including cultural, linguistic, and dispersion
over time and space. These distances affect the different practices of
software engineering leading to the need for new empirical studies,
techniques, tools, and practices from many disciplines.

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Submissions are invited for papers describing unpublished, original work,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 (to be presented as posters).

* Proposals for workshops and 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
