I am very glad to be on the program committee of the 3rd International Workshop on Social Software Engineering (SSE2010) organized by my dear friends Martin Ebner, Imed Hammouda, Hans-Joerg Happel, Walid Maalej, and Wolfgang Reinhardt. The workshop is co-located with the Software Engineering 2010 conference in Paderborn, Germany (February, 22-26 2010) and will take place on February, 24 2010.
In this workshop we would like to bring together researchers and practitioners working on different aspects of collaboration and knowledge sharing in software engineering as well as the engineering of social software to discuss new results and future research challenges. Major topics addressed at the workshop include (but not limited to):
The topics of the workshop include, but are not restricted to:
Social and human aspects of software engineering
Collaboration and knowledge sharing in development teams and (Open Source) communities
Impact of Social Software on development processes
Empirical studies on collaboration and information behaviour in social software engineering
Engineering social software
Engineering of lightweight and unobtrusive tools, Web 2.0 and Social Semantic Web applications
Approaches and tools for context-aware and personalized assistance
Particularities in the development of Social Software
Social Software Engineering
Concerns of individuals in collaboration settings, such as learning, usability and incentives
Usage of Social Software to teach software engineering, teaching social aspects of software engineering
Research methods and approaches for analyzing and designing successful collaboration support
Scientific analysis of the relation between methods/processes, tools and collaborative development practice
Below is the call for submissions. A PDF of the call is available here.
