Call For Papers

Rapidly changing requirements in business and technology require agile and highly responsive software organizations. In order to be responsive enough for such changes, organizations invest in hiring and training skilled workforces. These processes are typically very costly and time consuming. Hence, many organizations are now exploring non-conventional employment models, alternative workforces, and product development models (such as contract workers, crowdsourcing, and open source software respectively) to address these challenges. The workshop will address the emerging engagement models, tools, and techniques required to address challenges specific to this paradigm.

Topics:

-Leveraging alternative workforces inside organizations and enterprises.
-Crowdsourcing software development activities such as requirements, design, development, testing, deployment, and maintenance.
-Confidentiality and privacy issues in crowdsourced software development.
-Next generation software development models involving multiple workforce types.
-Cloud development environments.
-Crowdfunding for software development projects.
-Open innovation and programming competitions.
-Open source and tools for sharing and collaborating on software.
-Mechanisms for incentivizing the number and quality of contributions to software projects including payments and gamification.
-Empirical evaluation on the benefits of open innovation, crowdsourcing and outsourcing in software engineering.
-Communities such as Q&A forums and Wiki pages on software techniques and tools.
-Incorporating contributions from non-programmers towards software development.
-Policy, labor relations, and law related to alternative workforces in software engineering.
-The use of automation and artificial intelligence in software development.
-Computer supported collaborative work including HCI for collaboration and software engineering.

Format:

Submissions must be in the form of a self-contained extended abstracts of not more than 5 pages including all figures and tables, excluding references. Authors may include an appendix (without page limit); such an appendix will be read at the discretion of the reviewers and will not appear in the proceedings in case of acceptance.
