Conference Overview and Theme

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

Globally collaborative software and IT industries are bringing huge opportunities for each and every country all over the world. The diversity of culture and the dispersion over time and space require novel techniques, tools, and practices from many disciplines to overcome challenges and to take advantage of all the opportunities.

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.


- Project management of distributed software projects
- 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
- Cloud computing and crowdsourcing
- Methods and processes for global organizations
- Education in global software engineering

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Submissions are invited for papers describing unpublished, original work, in any of the following categories: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

***Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their papers to a special section in an issue of the Information and Software Technology journal published by Elsevier.

We also invite industry abstracts, contributions to different students events, and proposals for workshops and tutorials.
