Solutions for distributed product development and maintenance

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) brings together researchers and practitioners to share their experiences in improving collaboration of globally distributed teams. The ICGSE 2015 organizing committee invites academic, students and industrial communities to contribute to this flagship conference in global software and IT. We are looking for stimulus and solutions how the various challenges can be mitigated and resolved at particular stages of the software life cycle, such as analysis, design, testing, etc. Some of the topics of interest therefore include but are not restricted to:

  • Project management of distributed software projects.
  • 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 control.
  • Strategic issues in distributed development.
  • Managing and working with globally distributed suppliers and contractors.
  • Industrial offshoring and outsourcing experiences.
  • Tools and infrastructure support for distributed software development.
  • Cloud computing and crowdsourcing.
  • Methods and processes for global organizations.
  • Education in global software engineering.


A novelty in this edition is the “PhD Student hour“, during which PhD students can perform surveys/interviews/case studies or ask the different experts at the conference for feedback or advice. So, “future researchers” can therefore learn from their seniors, thus fostering an exchange of knowledge and collaboration. In this edition, ICGSE 2015 is connected to the first edition of the GINSENG (Green in Software Engineering) workshop, focused on the Development of Green Software. Two interesting events can therefore be attended with just one trip.

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Submissions are invited for papers describing unpublished, original work, in any of the following categories: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 encountered in industrial global software engineering environments. Maximum length 5 pages.
All papers will be handled electronically through ICGSE 2015 online submission system and peer reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers should conform to the A4 size, 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. We also invite industry abstracts which we will position for the dedicated “Industry Day”, submissions for the doctoral symposium, and proposals for workshops and tutorials. Further information and updates will be available on the conference website
