NeXGSD organizing GSD workshop at the 17th CSCW conference 2014


The 17th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW2014) will be held in Baltimore (USA)  in February 2014 and NeXGSD’s proposal for a workshop has now been accepted and the call for participation is open.

We invite both junior and senior researchers to submit on all aspects of distributed and global software development within the CSCW perspective. Papers reviewing existing research and papers investigating new and emerging topics with an association to both software development and CSCW are particularly welcomed.

The topics of interest include:

  • Invisible work in GSD
  • Designing for GSD
  • Interdisciplinary methods in GSD

Focus for the workshop is on the intersections between software development practices and global distributed collaboration, and investigate three key questions:

1. What are the invisible, taken-for-granted aspects of work, which make  GSD practices work?

2. What are the challenges in GSD we should be designing CSCW tools to support?

3. How can we bring together multi-method interdisciplinary approaches to study and design for GSD?

The expected outcome of the workshop will be to conclude with a final interactive session on consolidating the ideas presented in the workshop and brainstorming potential future lines of work. In particular, the opportunity for maintaining a shared bibliography for CSCW GSD literature will be discussed, as well as the option for putting together an edited book or special issue on this topic.
