Software and IT industries are today truly global - and so is software engineering. The diversity of culture and the dispersion over time and space require novel techniques, tools, and practices from many disciplines to overcome challenges and to take advantage of opportunities global software engineering offers.
The 5th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) will bring together researchers and practitioners interested in exploring how globally distributed teams work and how the challenges can be met.
The ICGSE-10 organizing committee invites the academic and industrial communities to contribute to the expertise of the international global software engineering community. Conference attendees will get an opportunity to explore the current state of practice in this area as well as new thoughts and trends that will shape the future.
In 2010, to increase the focus on Industry, we are including an industry track, for which papers will be separately reviewed. Topics of interest include , but are not restricted to:
