ICGSE 2020
Fri 26 - Sun 28 June 2020
co-located with ICSE 2020

Industrial practitioners are invited to submit talk proposals to the Industry Talk Track of ICGSE 2020. This track seeks presentations/discussions about significant real-world issues related to global software engineering (GSE).

We look for practical solutions that have helped to solve significant issues, experience with addressing issues and new challenges faced by industry practitioners that require help. We expect some practical solutions to be presented along with interesting problems but that is not mandatory. Presenting interesting problems as challenges to the research community is also welcome.

Important Dates

  • January 17th, 2020 (AoE) January 24th, 2020 (AoE) - Talk proposal submission deadline

The decision will be announced as soon as your proposal will be reviewed, but not later than Mar. 15, 2020.

Industry Talk Chairs:

Josiane Kroll (Experience Reports co-chair) - University of Manitoba, Canada

Anna Filippova (Experience Reports co-chair) - GitHub, USA
