Technical description

The challenging issues arising in the field of offshore software engineering projects require novel approaches in risk analysis, project planning, architecture and methods in order to handle the bounded financial and technical risks.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and professionals interested in global software development to discuss and exchange ideas. In particular, this workshop takes the perspective of the practitioner and focuses on the techniques that will help software professionals to meet the unique challenges in a global development environment. Thus, the major goal of this workshop is to discuss novel methodologies for risk management for global software development. Additionally, we want to provide a platform bringing together researches and practitioners in order to share their knowledge and requirements in the field of offshore software development.

The challenges that are coupled with the management of distributed software development projects call for new process models, techniques, methodologies and tools. This workshop focuses on multiple aspects of management of distributed software development. Topics of interest to the conference include the following aspects of global software engineering projects (but are not restricted to):

  • requirements engineering for globally distributed software development projects
  • requirements description in globally distributed software development projects
  • architecture based risk management
  • multi-sourcing in global software development
  • quality metrics form globally distributed projects
  • risk management / risk modelling / risk analysis of offshore projects
  • organizational models and strategies
  • process models
  • project portfolio management
  • communication models for distributed software development teams
  • causalities between critical success factors
  • metrics for critical success factors
  • problem handling during project work
  • strategic planning
  • project planning and preparations
  • simulation
