Workshop May 25th 2013
Software is created by people for people working in a range of environments and under various conditions. Understanding the cooperative and human aspects of software development is crucial in order to comprehend how methods and tools are used, and thereby improve the creation and maintenance of software. Both researchers and practitioners have recognized the need to investigate these aspects, but the results of such investigations are dispersed in different conferences and communities.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussing high quality research on human and cooperative aspects of software engineering. We aim to provide both a meeting place for the community and the possibility for researchers interested in joining the field to present and discuss their work in progress and to get an overview over the field.

Software engineering is about choices and decisions informed by the multiple and different viewpoints and human aspects from the stakeholders. Methods, tools and techniques have been shaped over many years by best practices. However, in the age of globalization, Software Engineering faces new challenges which should be illuminated from different perspectives. Therefore, topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Social and cultural aspects of software engineering
- Psychological and cognitive aspects of software engineering
- Managerial and organizational aspects of software engineering
- Cooperation in agile development
- Community based development processes like Open Source development
- Software engineering as cooperative work
- Coordination and mutual awareness in large-scale software development
- Cooperation between software developers and other professionals over the lifetime of a system
- Knowledge management in software engineering
- Distributed software development
- User participation in regard to ownership, training, level of involvement interplay with developers, sustainability and deployment aspects??
Examples of possible types of contributions include:
- Empirical studies of software engineering teams or individual software engineers in situ, using approaches such as ethnographies, surveys, interviews, contextual inquiries, data mining, etc;?
- Laboratory studies of individual and team software engineering behavior;?
- Novel tools motivated by observed needs such as new ways of capturing and accessing software-related knowledge, navigational systems, communication, collaboration, and awareness tools, visualizations, etc;?
- Novel processes motivated by observed needs, and;?
- Meta-research topics such as how to effectively validate interventions and research methods.
- The main goal of this workshop is to present current research and to explore new research directions that will lead to improvements in the creation and maintenance of software, from the perspective of both processes and tools.
- A secondary goal is to continue supporting and strengthening the community among the researchers working on cooperative and human aspects of software engineering, including those who typically attend ICSE and those who hail from other disciplines.
We welcome 8-page full papers, 4-page short papers, and 2-page notes in order to allow researchers who are at different stages in their research process the opportunity to benefit from workshop participation.
- Papers should be submitted to the workshop's EasyChair site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=chase2013.
- Papers should follow ICSE formatting guidelines for technical research: http://2013.icse-conferences.org/content/submission-guidelines
The complete list will be available in the workshop’s website.
