Call For Papers


Social software is built around an "architecture of participation" where user data is aggregated as a side-effect of using Web 2.0 applications. Web 2.0 implies that processes and tools are socially open, and that content can be used in several different contexts. Web 2.0 tools and technologies support interactive information sharing, data interoperability and user centered design. For instance, wikis, blogs, tags and feeds help us organize, manage and categorize content in an informal and collaborative way. One goal of this workshop is to investigate how these technologies can improve software development practices. Some of these technologies have made their way into collaborative software development processes such as Agile and Scrum, and in development platforms such as Rational Team Concert which draw their inspiration from Web 2.0. These processes and environments are just scratching the surface of what can be done by incorporating Web 2.0 approaches and technologies into collaborative software development. This workshop aims to improve our understanding of how Web 2.0, manifested in technologies such as mashups or dashboards, can change the culture of collaborative software development.


- Current use of Web 2.0 mechanisms by software developers
- Role of Web 2.0 technologies in software development
- Adaption of Web 2.0 tools by software developers
- Software development as a "socially open" process
- Using Web 2.0 tools to support informal communication in distributed teams
- Enhancements of development environments with regard to Web 2.0
- Tools that bring Web 2.0 into software development
- Mining Web 2.0 data from software repositories
- Informal processes in software engineering supported by Web 2.0
- Emergent Web 2.0 work practices in software development


- Summarize state-of-the-art research on the use of Web 2.0 technologies such as wikis, facebook, blogs, and tags in software development
- Explore how Web 2.0 technologies in software development could be further leveraged, in particular to support distributed and team-based development
- Investigate to which extent the "socially open" attitude of Web 2.0 applies to software development.
- Explore how Web 2.0 technologies can be incorporated into software engineering processes and methods


Both research papers (max. 6 pages) and poster papers as well as position papers (max. 2 pages) will be accepted. The final version of the accepted papers will be published in the ICSE Companion and will also be made available during the workshop. Papers must follow the ACM conference format and must not exceed the page limits mentioned above, including figures and references. All submissions must be in English. Papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, using the submission website.
