“ICGSE is an exciting event with lots of insight about best practices in different
companies as well as innovative research. Excellence in global software
engineering is pivotal for competitiveness and success. ICGSE hits the
mark each time.”
Christof Ebert, Vector, Germany

“ICGSE is the conference I attended as an academic and still participate
in now that I am in industry. Being part of the discussions in this supportive
community has left me with valuable lessons I continue to practice today.”

Ban Al-Ani, ADP, USA

The 12th IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE 2017) brings together researchers and practitioners to share their research findings, experiences, and new ideas on diverse themes related to global software engineering. Inspired on the well-established ICGSE conference series, ICGSE 2017 aims to further promote the integration between industry and academia. The collegial atmosphere welcomes those looking to discuss new ideas and find new research collaborations. The conference explicitly encourages submissions of research papers describing theoretical frameworks, presenting technical solutions, or reporting on empirical studies. The conference also encourages submissions of industry experience reports and papers on ICGSE training and education.

ICGSE 2017 is part of a series of conferences presented by icgse.org

As a novelty for 2017, we are introducing a radical new track for the conference called “Ignite Track Sessions”. The intent is to draw innovative ideas from industry and scientific communities. Therefore, if you have a strong GSE-related message that you really want to share with the GSE world, we encourage you to send us a proposal for an Ignite presentation. The contributions are less scientific in their nature but argued in a compelling way. We would like to provide an opportunity for the community to present ideas that generate discussion and have the capacity to push the field forward in an unexpected way. Tell us about tools, processes, tips, tricks, war stories, whatever. Make us laugh, make us cry, show us how to be more awesome. The submissions are still peer-reviewed to ensure the quality of content. See more at the Submit page.

We are also happy to announce that for the first time this year (2017), ICGSE will be held in conjunction with ICSE—the International Conference on Software Engineering. ICGSE 2017 will take place at Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina (UCA), in Buenos Aires, Argentina, May 22-23, 2017.
