10th International Conference on Global Software Engineering
July 13-16th, 2015

Conference Research Themes
Effectively engineering software in a global context is a key competitive advantage in today’s IT and software industry. However, the increased globalization of software development creates 
challenges due to the impact of time zones, diversity of culture and communication, or distance. This requires novel and effective techniques and practices to achieve intended 
productivity and quality targets.

The 10th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) brings together researchers and practitioners interested in solving the challenges of continentally distributed 
software engineering. The ICGSE 2015 organizing committee invites academic and industrial communities to contribute to the expertise of the international global software engineering community.

ICGSE 2015 (14-16 July) will be held in Escuela Superior de Informática, the Computer Science Faculty of University of Castilla-La Mancha, in Ciudad Real.

Ciudad Real (which means ‘Royal City’ in Spanish) is a city located in the Southern Central part of Spain, in the region of Castilla-La Mancha, which is the “Don Quixote” region. It is not easy to categorize Castilla-La Mancha, for it is a region of great variety and complexity. On the one hand, there is the ruddy red earth, the windmills, and simple whitewashed villages of the province of Ciudad Real (which encompasses most of the area commonly called La Mancha). But there are also the strangely sculpted cliffs of Cuenca and Albacete, the hilly woodlands of Guadalajara and the dark mystery and ancient cultures of Toledo.It is perfectly located for transport connections, as it is only 1 hour away from the main cities of Spain: Madrid (1 hr by high speed train), Barcelona (less than 1 hour by plane), Toledo (1 hr by car), Córdoba (70 minutes by high speed train) and Sevilla (2 hr by high speed train).

It is a modern city, one of the very few in Spain where you can forget your problems and have time to enjoy yourself. Ciudad Real’s citizens love the outdoors, enjoying the weather and people. Their hospitality and open mindedness make visiting this city an experience that nobody should miss.
