Important Dates


We invite original submissions of high quality papers in 3 distinct categories. Industry and education papers will be handled by specialist review tracks.

Research papers - technical solutions, empirical studies and survey papers. Research papers are expected to explain how the problem being addressed is relevant to the conference topics, describe the research approach, and solution papers are further to include preliminary validation.

Industry practice papers - country, industry and domain-specific reports. Industry papers are expected to provide sufficient context for understanding the challenges and insights, and to make the more general lessons for global software development clear to others.

Education and training papers - experience and proposal papers. Education papers are expected to explain the pedagogical goals of the work, critique their attainment (or not) and provide guidance for other educators.

In all 3 categories: Full papers (up to 15 pages) Short/position/vision papers (up to 6 pages)
