CHASE 2023
Sun 14 - Mon 15 May 2023 Melbourne, Australia
co-located with ICSE 2023

16th International Conference on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE 2023)

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, emotional and human aspects of software engineering are welcome.

CHASE 2023 welcomes contributions submitted to four different tracks, namely:

Daniela Damian

Daniela Damian - The Inclusive Developer: Perspectives and Considerations for Building Inclusive Software

A Professor of Software Engineering in University of Victoria’s Department of Computer Science, Daniela Damian leads research in the Software Engineering Global interAction Laboratory (SEGAL, Her work studies the human and social aspects of software development, at the intersection of Requirements Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering and Global Software Development. Recently she founded the INSPIRE:STEM for Social Impact Program ( at the University of Victoria and which facilitates and studies experiential-learning science and engineering projects in community-led and society-impactful projects. Daniela was Program Co-Chair of SEIS 2014, Program Chair for ICSE 2022, and has served on the editorial boards of Transactions on Software Engineering and the Journal of Requirements Engineering. She is serving on the Advisory Board at the Empirical Software Engineering Journal and as the Human Aspects Area Editor for the Journal of Software and Systems.
Jon Whittle

Jon Whittle - Humans of AI

Jon Whittle is Director of CSIRO's Data61, the largest collection of computer and data scientists in Australia. Data61 is the digital and data technologies arm of Australia's national science agency - its role is to help solve the greatest challenges usingdigital technologies. It focuses on applied research that has real impact in the world. Since its inception in 2016, there have been around 20 spinouts from Data61, hundreds of projects solving real industry problems, and significant impacts on public policy and societal discourse (including Australia's AI Roadmap and Australia's AI Ethics Framework). Jon has a passion for embedding human values in software and since 2021 has built up a team of over 20 researchers working with industry and government to ensure that AI is applied responsibly.
