KNOWledge engINeering in Global software development (KNOWING)
Knowledge engineering is an evolutionary process of engineering artefacts and using them to gain new understandings. These new understandings are then used to further engineer or modify artefacts and the process continues.
Knowledge engineering in global software development is being increasingly researched by the software and the knowledge management communities.
To implement a good knowledge management strategy in a global software engineering environment,organizations have to overcome issues which have been identified in many previous studies. These issues make global software distribution a difficult and complex task.
Hosting a workshop on this topic at the International Conference on Global Software Engineering will bring together researchers from both these communities in a forum where they can discuss and explore similarities between both communities' research.
Topics should have a global software development focus and include, but are not limited to:
* knowledge management within software engineering from a business perspective
* collaboration and knowledge sharing
* knowledge discovery services and tools
* workflows and decision making including experiences with Wiki support
* methods and tools for managing knowledge
* architectural knowledge management practices
* skills management and transfer of knowledge
Papers must be submitted electronically by email to Sarah Beecham, [log in to unmask], or, Ivan Mistrik, [log in to unmask]
* traceability,accountability and risks
* knowledge management in global software product line engineering
* automated extraction,collection, and abstraction of knowledge from software archives
* applications of ontologies
* empirical analysis of globally distributed development project performance
* knowledge management issues in agile and iterative approaches
* portals and services for knowledge management on the semantic web
* software process simulation of emergent issues
Your paper must conform to the IEEE proceedings publication format(8.5" x 11",Two-Column Format) described at IEEE/CPS (http://www.computer.org/portal/site/cscps/menuitem.02df7cde46985ea21618fc2e6bcd45f3/index.jsp?&pName=cscps_level1&path=cscps/cps&file=cps_forms.xml&xsl=generic.xsl&)
