Effectively engineering software in a global context is a key competitive advantage in today’s IT and software industry. However, the increased globalization of software development creates challenges due to the impact of time zones, diversity of culture and communication, or distance. This requires novel and effective techniques and practices to achieve intended productivity and quality targets.
The 11th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) brings together researchers and practitioners interested in solving the challenges of continentally distributed software engineering. The ICGSE 2016 organizing committee invites academic and industrial communities to contribute to the expertise of the international global software engineering community.
“ICGSE is an exciting event with lots of insight about best practices in different companies as well as innovative research. Excellence in global software engineering is pivotal for competitiveness and success. ICGSE hits the mark each time.” – Christof Ebert, Vector, Germany
“ICGSE is the conference I attended as an academic and still participate in now that I am in industry. Being part of the discussions in this supportive community has left me with valuable lessons I continue to practice today.” – Ban Al-Ani, Automatic Data Processing, USA

A note about our banner image. California is in the midst of a very serious long-term drought, and water conservation is mandated. There is now a popular movement towards drought tolerant landscaping with native vegetation that is suitable for our naturally semi-arid climate. Our banner image features the native California poppy–the state flower of California–in a drought tolerant rock garden setting. While you are in California, we hope you enjoy not only our gorgeous beaches but all our natural landscape beauty.
