Call for Contribution

Software development environments have changed significantly in the last decade, both physically (e.g., war rooms and talking walls) and technically (e.g., automatic testing and integration tools). Software development methods have changed to support better collaboration with the customer and the way software processes are managed and governed. Today's Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) contain comprehensive sets of tools to accommodate these changes.

The purpose of this one-day seminar is to discuss recent innovations in the area of software development environments and to promote collaboration among researchers and practitioners in this area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Methods and tools and their expression in the development environment
  • Physical changes in software development environments
  • Project and portfolio management in software development
  • Model-driven development in software development environments
  • Governance of software development

We invite researchers and practitioners to contribute their visions of software development environments. We invite submissions of:

  • Technical papers describing relevant research
  • Position papers describing innovative ideas and research in progress
  • Experience reports
  • Demonstrations of techniques and tools

Submissions should not exceed three pages and should specify one kind of contribution (technical paper, position paper, experience report, or demonstration).
