Call For Papers

Open innovation (OI) leverages data, knowledge and human resources from beyond organizational boundaries and enables new paths to the market for products by combining internal and external ideas into architectures and systems which their requirements are defined by business models. Open innovation inspired business models to use both sources of ideas in order to provide value and to define internal mechanisms for claiming some proportion of that value.

The tremendous success of Open Source Software (OSS) in the last twenty years have ignited and encouraged several new movements for collective innovation. Crowdsourcing, Global Software Development (GSD) and outsourcing are among the types of open innovation. Crowdsourcing is taking advantage of web technologies and social media with the ability to actively involve users and control the community to achieve organizational tasks and often uses outsourcing and sophisticated web technologies. Open Source Software (OSS) is the most straightforward application of OI to software development, although not the only one.

Despite the wide interest in several domains and the unquestionable potential that OI can bring to the software industry, OI remains greatly unexplored in the SE literature. At the same time, OI literature gives an extensive interest in to exploring OSS as one of the ways to incorporate external knowledge and innovation to internal product innovation activities. While the business view of open innovation proved to be beneficial, software engineering community needs support in understanding what tools, techniques and methods are well suited or can enable OI on both strategic and operational levels.

The OISE 2015 workshop aims at bridging the gap between OI in business domain and software engineering domain by establishing a community of researchers working with OI in software engineering. The goals of OISE2015 workshop are to: 1) elicit high quality in OI in software engineering, 2) facilitate the discussion on these topics, and 3) find opportunities for academic and industrial collaborations.

Papers are expected (but not limited) to relate to one (or more) of the topics below:
- Open innovation in requirements engineering, architectures and testing
- Crowdsourcing for software product development
- Open source software engineering?
- Social media for software engineering?
- Outsourcing?
- Empirical evaluation on the benefits of open innovation in software engineering
- Case studies
- Software engineering tools and techniques that foster open innovation

OISE 2015 is interested in contributions to this conversation by a wide variety of authors, researchers and thought leaders. We invite the following types of submissions:
- Full papers (max 5 pages) that reflect completed and evaluated research on novel approaches to major software and systems engineering process challenges for Open Innovation and in-depth experience reports of significance for the community.
- Short papers (max 2 pages) that describe less complete work-in-progress research papers (e.g. PhD research) or conceptual and position papers addressing open research questions and future research directions.

All submissions must follow the ACM SIG proceedings format found at:
Full papers are limited to 5 pages and short papers to 2 pages. Full and Short Paper submissions must be submitted through EasyChair:
