ICGSE 2020
Sat 23 - Sun 24 May 2020 Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea
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.

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