WDDS 2011 - 5th Workshop on Distributed Software Development
*(in conjunction with the 2nd Brazilian Conference on Software - CBSoft 2011)
São Paulo, SP - Brazil

Call for Papers
Submission Deadline: June 10, 2011

The requirements and complexity of current software systems impose the
cooperation of several development teams with different skills. Recently,
these teams started working in geographically distributed settings. The
software industry has been exploring distributed resources as a mean to
reduce cost and development time, and also to expand to new markets.
However, geographical distance has a significant impact on the coordination
and communication processes among members of dispersed development teams.
Thus, problems and challenges intrinsic to software development processes
become more critical in Distributed Software Development (DSD).

DSD is a common practice in the national and international markets. In
Brazil, we find companies located in different regions that jointly develop
software projects. Besides that, several multinational organizations have
been developing software projects in Brazil. In order to deal with
distribution issues, several technological, organizational and social
approaches and solutions have been proposed. The study of such proposals is
aligned with Brazilian government programs that aim to increase the quality
of software processes, and products and services, making more competitive
the national software industry in the global software development context.

Following the worldwide trend of scientific events on DSD, the fifth edition
of the Workshop on Distributed Software Development (WDDS 2011) constitutes
a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to present and to discuss
their results and experiences in the area. The goal is to provide an
opportunity for exchanging knowledge and experiences, facilitating the
adoption, evaluation and development of academic and industrial DSD projects
in Latin America.

Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing research results
and innovation on the state-of-the-art in DSD. Experience reports are
welcome, particularly those which bring advancements on the
state-of-the-practice in DSD.

TOPICS OF INTEREST (non-exhaustive list):
The WDDS 2011 invites researchers, students and practitioners to submit
papers related to innovation and with consolidated knowledge in the DSD
area. Topics of interest in alphabetical order include, but are not limited

- Case studies of successful and unsuccessful DSD projects;
- Communication, collaboration and coordination in DSD projects;
- DDS and agile methods;
- Empirical studies of DSD projects (quantitative and qualitative);
- Management of the variety of DSD projects (culture, technical, social and
- Models and environments for DSD (internal offshoring, offshore
outsourcing, outsourcing);
- Reports on industrial experiences presenting lessons learned;
- Project management in DSD (human resources, project planning, mentoring,
- Teaching distributed and global software development;
- Tools for DSD (requirements management, configuration management,
distributed teams management, document sharing, among others).

Papers can be written either in Portuguese or in English. All submissions
must follow the guidelines established by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), available at:

*Submitted papers must be unpublished original work.*

Two types of submissions are expected:
- Technical papers;
- Experience reports on industrial case studies.

All submitted papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the
Program Committee, on the basis of originality and contribution to the DSD
area. Technical papers will be judged according to their adequacy to
workshop scope, originality, relevance, technical soundness and clarity of
expression. Experience reports will be judged based on their adequacy to
workshop scope, practical applicability, clarity of expression and
contribution to advancements on the state-of-the-practice.

Papers should not exceed 08 pages and must be submitted in Adobe Portable
Document Format (PDF). The paper must be submitted using the JEMS system ( For accepted submissions, at least one of
the authors must register in the workshop for presenting the paper.

For further information, contact the Program Committee Chair at or see at:

All accepted papers will be published in the CBSoft 2011 conference CD.

The best papers of the WDDS 2011 may be published in a journal.
