The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Workshop proposals are accepted until:

December 26, 2018

The phenomena of globalization brought significant financial changes to majority of the industries and specifically for software development. However, the existing literature highlighted that it is not easy and straight forward to achieve the financial benefits. The key barriers to accomplish the potential benefits of GSE are complex communication and coordination issues, developing trust among the team members and developing GSE practices due to geographical, socio-cultural and temporal distances. Understanding issues and challenges related to GSE will assist towards the successful execution of software development activities. This workshop will provide a forum for academic and industrial researchers to share their empirical based understanding related to GSE activities. We welcome the research articles which report empirical studies in various GSE domains.

Suggested topics, this workshop will endeavor, include (but are not limited to) the following:

• 3Cs (Communication, Coordination, Control) in global software engineering
• Trust and socialization in global software engineering
• Global software engineering knowledge management
• Risk management
• Scaling agile in global software engineering domain
• Quality management
• Managing human behaviors in global software engineering
• Cultural diversity management
• Global software engineering process improvement standards and models
• Global software engineering education
