The software industry is experiencing dramatic changes: distributed software development done in an agile way; agile methodologies scaled to meet the requirements to support projects with several hundred developers; and frequently deploying software which leads to continuous development practices. As software engineering practices evolve, the Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE) change as well. It is crucial to understand current and emerging software practices, processes, and tools and their impact on important local and global issues. In turn, this enables us to design tools and support mechanisms that improve software creation and maintenance, customer communication, and the use and evolution of deployed software systems.
Researchers and practitioners have long recognized the need to investigate these aspects. However, their articles have been scattered across many conferences and communities. This workshop provides a unified forum for discussing high quality research studies, models, methods, and tools for human and cooperative aspects of software engineering. We provide a meeting place for academic, industry, and practitioner communities interested in this area, and for those who are curious to see what it is all about.

*TOPICS OF INTEREST*
Topics of interest are about the human, cooperative, and collaborative aspects of software engineering such as:
* Software design or engineering philosophies, practices, and tools;
* Adapting tools or processes to accommodate a range of organizational and cultural situations;
* Sociological, cultural, psychological, or cognitive aspects of software design or engineering;
* Managerial or organizational aspects focused on people and their interactions;
* Teamwork, collaboration, or cooperation in or across various development teams and methodologies;
* Community-based software development (e.g., Open Source, crowdsourcing, etc);
* Coordination and knowledge sharing at different scales (e.g., distributed teams, semi-anonymous collaboration, “borderless” teams);
* Stakeholder participation within and across phases;
* Processes and tools to support communication, collaboration, and cooperation among stakeholders.
Possible contributions include:
* Empirical studies of software engineering teams or individuals in situ;
* Laboratory studies of individual or team software engineering behavior;
* Novel tools or processes motivated by observed needs or empirical investigations;
* Use of analysis techniques or frameworks from disciplines outside software engineering, applied to empirical software engineering topics;
* Meta-research topics.
*SUBMISSIONS AND PRESENTATION*
* We welcome 8-page full papers, 4-page short papers, and 2-page notes to enable attendees at different stages in their research process to participate in the workshop. Page limits include references.
* Papers should be submitted through easychair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=chase2019) according to the IEEE formatting instructions (https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html).
* Accepted papers will be hosted on a password-protected, CHASE-hosted, collaboration site to foster discussion prior to the workshop. The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available by IEEE. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2019. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
* We plan to have presentations for all papers. Short papers and notes will be presented in shorter formats with accompanying posters. All interested parties are welcome to register, even without an accepted paper.
* The complete list will be available at the workshop’s website. (http://www.chaseresearch.org/workshops/chase2019)
