Conference overview

The 14th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering will be held in Montréal, Canada, in co-location with ICSE 2019.

ICGSE 2019 brings together researchers and practitioners to share their research findings, experiences, and new ideas on diverse themes related to global software engineering.

We welcome diverse contributions in the following categories:
  • Research papers – full (10 pages) and short papers (5 pages), including those dedicated to training and education
  • Experience reports (by industry) (5 pages)
  • Industry talks
  • Contributions to Doctoral Symposium (4 pages)

Research papers, experience reports, and contributions to the doctoral consortium will be included in the conference proceedings to be published by IEEE and will appear in the digital libraries of both ACM and IEEE.

Special Issue on 'Global Software Engineering: Challenges and Solutions'

A special issue aimed at publishing new contributions to the field of GSE research has been accepted at the Journal of System and Software (JSS) published by Elsevier. This is an open call for papers so everyone is welcome to submit a contribution. Authors of accepted ICGSE papers will be also invited to submit a revised and extended version of their work.
