REMIDI 2010 : 4th International Workshop on Tool Support Development and Management in Distributed Software Projects (co-located with ICGSE 2010)
Call For Papers
*Call for Papers*
in conjunction with: International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE 2010)
Princeton, USA, August 23 - 26, 2010
Distributed projects (often subsumed under terms like global software development (GSD), global collaboration, offshoring etc.) are common ways to overcome time and resource restrictions or lack of local expertise. In addition, current budget saving initiatives lead to higher international competition. Thus, software development projects take place in a global context. At the same time, tool integration and end-to-end tool chains are more and more getting on the agenda of researchers and industry to tackle the growing complexity of these development projects. Experience shows that an appropriate tool chain increases efficiency and success of distributed projects. Aspects like process assistance, knowledge management or project tracking ask for appropriate tools. Therefore, the workshop will walk through methods and concepts that are applied and the tool chains that are used in global software development projects. Like last years' successful editions (cf. first and second workshop), the workshop will explicitly focus on tools and infrastructures for GSD projects.
The participants will present and discuss project experiences, best practices, tool prototypes and new approaches - in academic research and in industry. One of the objectives of this workshop is to structure the major research topics and to define a research agenda for further work in the area of "end-to-end" tool support in distributed system development. Besides that, there will be a demo session with presentations and live demonstrations of tools that are specifically dedicated to support distributed development projects.
Topics of the 1-day Workshop:
The workshop will include different aspects of tool selection and orchestration in a distributed software development context. The following is a non-exhaustive list of relevant topics:
- Collaboration and communication in software engineering
- Process assistance and support
- Tool orchestration
- Economic aspects
- Project management
- Lessons learned from OSS
- Lessons learned from distributed development
An explicit tool track asks vendors and academic research teams to present their products or prototypes. Live demonstrations are welcome.
The workshop targets practictioners as well as researchers interested or involved with geographically or organizationally distributed software development.
