Another call for papers—this one for the 4th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE 2011); a workshop that is co-located with ICSE and is always more interesting than the main conference itself, and for which I’m honoured to be part of the program committee. From the call for papers:
Software is created by people for people working in varied environments, under various conditions. Thus understanding cooperative and human aspects of software development is crucial to comprehend how methods and tools are used, and thereby improving the creation and maintenance of software. Over the years, both researchers and practitioners have recognized the need to study and understand these aspects. Despite recognizing this, researchers in cooperative and human aspects have no clear place to meet and are dispersed in different research conferences and areas.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussing high quality research on human and cooperative aspects of software engineering. We aim at providing both a meeting place for the growing community and the possibility for researchers interested in joining the field to present their work in progress and get an overview over the field.
