GInSEng 2016

2 nd Green in Software Engineering Workshop

29 th August 2016, Amsterdan

The workshop leitmotiv is: Converging Research and Practical GInSEng

Software is becoming more and more important every day. This relevance is reflected not only in the massive use of software systems in society but also in the importance which software systems play as core element to support business development and business processes.

But we must to be aware that software consumes energy and resources. In the area of Information Technology (IT), for quite some time, there have been efforts related to Green IT.

However, from the software point of view, research and practice are just starting. In relation to research, despite there is no too much work available about green software it is becoming a strong line of research. Moreover, environmental aspects are being introduced into the industry as part of its business processes.

This means that software and environmental aspects are a challenge that we must face as community.

Green practices should become part of the software development, as well as the rest of Software engineering activities by taking into consideration environmental aspects. It is of prime importance to define greener processes to produce greener software products or services. The Ginseng workshop aims at discussing the importance of incorporating green aspects as part of the software engineering practices.

We want to promote all aspects related to green software engineering by giving researchers the opportunity of sharing and discussing their work and ideas. Moreover, we plan to identify, during the workshop, possible future research directions.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the list below. We explicitly solicit position papers, short papers or posters related to highlighted topics. Theoretical proposals, emergent ideas not yet validated, empirical studies, case studies or implementation solutions are welcome, too.

  • Green practices in software engineering
  • Green software products, processes and systems
  • Green software requirements
  • Green software testing
  • Green software maintenance
  • Green software quality and measurement
  • Software consumption measurement
  • Green software methods, methodologies, development, and modeling
  • Green business processes
  • Green software reengineering and modernization
  • Green software project management
  • Other aspects related to software and the environment: society, economy, environment, human, social aspects …
  • Green software as part of the business objectives of the companies
  • Green software engineering professional practice

Important dates, to be added in your agenda, are:

  • Contribution deadline: extended 06/07/2016
