After running as one of the most successful workshops at ICSE for 13 years, the Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE) returns as a co-located conference at ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) in 2021!
CHASE is a high-quality venue for research related to the cooperative and human aspects of software engineering. Researchers and practitioners have long recognized the need to investigate the cooperative and human aspects. However, their articles have been scattered across many conferences and communities. The CHASE conference 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.
Continuing its long tradition of being a diverse and inclusive community, CHASE welcomes human and social topics using a variety of research methods and techniques including, but not limited to case studies, ethnography, experiments and quasi-experiments, grounded theory, mining software repositories and other data, social media research, survey research and many more. Applications of new and interesting methods and techniques from other disciplines to study the cooperative and human aspects of software engineering are welcome.
