Themes and Goals 
----------------

Industrial software engineers   need  a flexible  and  modular process
model that enables  them to combine  the benefits of existing  process
models, methods, techniques, and  best practices in a project-specific
way. To devise such a process model,  a comprehensive and clear notion
of software development   processes  and  the  corresponding   process
artifacts  is required. Over  the last years, we  have been working on
the concept of  process patterns.  The  underlying meta  model and the
corresponding description techniques provide a common understanding of
all kinds of   software  development processes and  their   artifacts,
respectively.

The  workshop   harvests   best practices,  techniques,   methods, and
development   process   fragments  presented   as software development
process patterns. The purpose of this  workshop is then to combine and
relate  these  patterns,   thus making   a    first  step  towards   a
comprehensive process pattern language. This language will be based on a
common software development  process framework, and it  will include
methodical guidelines   on the selection   of the  appropriate process
pattern for a specific situation.

Our mid- and long-term goal  is to continually  evolve the language in
order to gain a general basis for  the integration, communication, and
evolution  of process  knowledge  from different software  engineering
communities.  The workshop may thus result  in the establishment of an
international community   for software development processes  based on
process  patterns. The interest of  this community will be to collect,
document, and  improve software  engineering and  development  process
knowledge.


Topics
------

The workshop will  elicit submissions of  a large range of established
best practices, techniques, methods, and development process fragments
to support the software development process.

To  ease  communication    among the  participants,    submissions are
recommend to be documented as a process  patterns. For this, a process
pattern template, a sample process  pattern, and a  rough sketch of  a
conceptual framework   for  process patterns   are  provided  at   the
workshop's  website   (http://www.forsoft.de/zen/sdpp02/). Ideally,  a
paper might also reflect about the template or framework that was used
to document a process pattern and argue why it is appropriate or not.

Besides a sound description of the proposed process pattern(s) itself,
the paper should also discuss why  the presented process fragment is a
good candidate for a  process pattern. This  comprises a discussion of
how  the proposed  pattern   can be  reused in  different  development
processes and how  it could possibly be  combined with other patterns.
Topics   that are relevant    to the  workshop  are,  guidelines, best
practices,  experience  reports, techniques,  methods, or  development
process fragments that describe how to be better in:

* teamwork and collaboration 
* project management and planning
* requirements engineering and business analysis
* design, modeling, using tools, elaborating documentation
* using UML and other notations
* programming
* testing
* quality assurance
* redesign and refactoring
* customers and contracts
* cost estimation and measurement
* other software development process relevant topics

During the workshop  the authors will  present their papers and answer
questions that  relate  directly to their  presentation. Subsequently,
the participants will discuss how the  presented patterns may fit into a
common process pattern language and how  a process pattern framework
must look  like to  provide an   appropriate base for  such a  pattern
language.

The main goal of the workshop is to establish an ongoing discussion on
process  patterns  and thereby to   agree on an appropriate conceptual
framework for these patterns to  enhance flexibility and evolution  of
software development processes.


Submissions
-----------

Paper submission    is required for    participation  in the workshop.
Submission deadline is  the  3th October  2002.  Papers should  not
exceed a length of 5 - 15  pages.  Authors are  invited to send their
papers to the organizers  of  the workshop (mailto:[log in to unmask])  in
Postscript or PDF format.  All  submitted papers will be peer-reviewed
by a minimum of three people.

The accepted papers will be published on  the workshop website already
before the workshop. Workshop proceedings including all papers will be
published as Technical Report of the Technische Universität München.
