Ninth IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE)

Fudan University, Shanghai, China

August 18-21, 2014

Strict deadline for Paper submissions: February 24, 2014

Globally collaborative software and IT industries are bringing huge opportunities for each and every country all

over the world. Shanghai, as the economy and finance center of China, has a rapidly developing industry of

software and information technology. ICGSE 2014 will be held in Crowne Plaza Shanghai Fudan, a luxury five-

star hotel. It will be a good place to meet researchers and practitioners from all around the world who are

interested in GSE topics.

Main Theme: Global Software Development and Engineering - Trends and Evolution

The 9th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) brings together researchers and

practitioners interested in solving the challenges of distributed software development. ICGSE 2014 invites

academic and industrial individuals and teams to contribute to the fast growing field of global software

development and engineering.

Practice: Global Software Engineering addresses real-world challenges, and so we especially seek industry

knowledge. We invite industrial participants to share observations and experiences in the conference by

publishing papers and making presentations.

Research: We invite academic researchers to submit papers discussing GSE research and GSE education. Papers

with empirical evidence are encouraged and will be given preference.

- Collaborative requirement development

- Software design and architecture for distributed development

- Agile and lean development in distributed teams and organizations

- Software testing in a globally distributed environment

- Communication, coordination and collaboration

- Strategic issues in distributed development

- Working with globally distributed contractors

- Industrial offshoring and out sourcing experiences

- Tools and infrastructure support for distributed software development

* Paper Submission *


Submissions are invited for papers describing unpublished, original work, in any of the following categories:

+ Research Papers that describe theoretical frameworks, technical solutions, or empirical studies. Maximum

length: 10 pages.

+ Practice Papers that describe problems, lessons learned, solutions implemented, and challenges and

opportunities encountered in industrial global software engineering environments. Maximum length: 5 pages.

All papers will be handled electronically through ICGSE 2014 online submission system and peer reviewed by at

least three reviewers. Papers should conform to the two-column IEEE CS Press format. Accepted papers will be

published in the conference proceedings by IEEE CS Press and be available in the IEEE CS Digital Library.
