Global Software Engineering: 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.
