The Second Workshop on Software Support for Collaborative and Global Software Engineering (SCGSE 2017)

Part of the ASE 2017

October 30th, 2017
Urbana-Champaign, IL


Collaboration is a fundamental problem of global software engineering. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in software support for collaborative software engineering, including researchers interested in global collaborations. The intent is to involve a wide range of researchers including those who develop software tool support, perform modeling, or perform empirical (quantitative or qualitative) studies of collaborative and global software engineering. Aside from the typical position papers and discussions, we intend to develop a summary document (aka “white paper”) outlining achievements to date and compiling challenges for the automated engineering community.

Call for Papers

Automated software engineering, and software engineering in general, has a rich history around the issues of collaboration. One might argue that many of the tools, models, and studies that have been reported in the ASE conference series have in one way or another had to do with collaboration. This workshop seeks specifically to highlight collaboration as a specific lens or framework for assessing the state of the art in automated support for collaborative and global software engineering. In taking this focus, issues about integrative solutions, open problems, and a research agenda will emerge.

Themes of workshop include but are not limited to the following:


Interested participants should submit a 2-4 page position or research paper using the EasyChair system:
Accepted papers will be published in the digital library.

All submissions must come in PDF format and conform, at the time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines. Authors should use the US letter style. LaTeX users should declare their document class as \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}. The compsoc option is not to be used.
