1st International Workshop on InnerSource Software Development to be held on 20 May 2023 in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with ICSE 2023.

Call for Papers

Our goal for the InnerSoft Workshop is to be the space for a productive dialogue between academics and practitioners interested in InnerSource. We are looking to minimize the known barriers to industry participation in software engineering research conferences. So, we are soliciting extended abstracts, maximum 2 pages long including references, outlining a lightning talk or a poster presentation. All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and the accepted ones will be a part of the workshop proceedings.

We are soliciting abstracts in two categories:

  • Problems: The abstract outlines a specific problem in InnerSource adoption, which could be in an industrial context or is potentially interesting to an academic audience.
  • Solutions: The abstract reports on tools, techniques, or practices that could facilitate InnerSource adoption at an organization that the authors have built or are working on.

Submission Instructions


The paper format of the Workshop’s paper must follow the IEEEE formatting guidelines. LATEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf options. Submitted papers will undergo single-anonymous peer review.
