The phenomena of globalization brought significant financial changes to the software development industry). Nowadays, the concepts of global software engineering (GSE) has been adopted by the majority of the software firms in order to accomplish the significant benefits including lower cost, delivery on time, access to skilled workforce and proximity to market. However, the existing literature highlighted that it’s not easy and straight forward to achieve the reported benefits. The key barriers to achieve the potential benefits of GSE are complex communication and coordination issues, developing trust among the team members and developing GSE practices due to geographical, socio-cultural and temporal distances. Understanding issues and challenges related to GSE will assist towards the successful execution of software development activities.
This workshop will provide a forum for academic and industrial researchers to share their empirical based understanding related to GSE activities. We welcome the research articles which report empirical studies in various GSE domains.
