Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering
-Workshop at ICSE 08, Leipzig Germany
-Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Software is created by people - software engineers working in varied
environments, under various conditions. Thus understanding the cooperative
and human aspects of software development is crucial to understanding how
methods and tools are used, and thereby improving both the creation and
maintenance of software. Recently, a renaissance is occurring in this
research area, with a large amount of research being published in software
engineering venues as well as other research discourses. Thus the time is
ripe to bring together researchers to share knowledge, and further build the
research area.
The goal of this workshop is therefore to provide a forum for discussing
high quality research on the cooperative and human aspects of software
engineering, as well as a meeting place for the nascent community that is
currently distributed over several research domains (e.g. HCI, SE, CSCW, and
Topics of Interest 
include but are not limited to:

* Software engineering as cooperative work,
* Social and cultural aspects of software engineering,
* Psychological and cognitive aspects of software engineering,
* Managerial and organizational aspects of software engineering
* Coordination of large scale software development,
* Cooperation between software developers and other professionals over the
lifetime of a system.
* Knowledge management in software engineering.

Prospective participants are invited to submit position papers (up to 4
pages) on a topic of relevance using the same format required for the ICSE
technical papers (posted at
