PPIG Work-in-Progress Workshop (WIP-PPIG) 
21-22 February 2008, University of Sussex, UK 

Paper submissions are now invited for the PPIG work-in-progress workshop.

The Psychology of Programming Interest Group are holding the 4th
work-in-progress workshop at the University of Sussex on 21-22 February

The PPIG work-in-progress workshop is a friendly forum in which researchers
at all levels can present and discuss current work and recent results,
findings and developments concerned with psychological aspects of software
development.  A feature of the PPIG workshops has been their openness to a
wide spectrum of concerns related to programming and software engineering,
from the design of programming languages to communication issues in software
teams, and from computing education to high-performance professional
practice. Similarly, PPIG entertains a broad spectrum of research
approaches, from theoretical perspectives drawing on psychological theory to
empirical perspectives grounded in real-world experience. 

This informal workshop is intended to foster exchange of ideas and
constructive suggestions for research in progress. Doctoral students and
more experienced researchers will be equally welcome. 

PPIG aims to bring together people working in a variety of disciplines and
to break down cross-disciplinary barriers. If you have any queries as to
whether your topic falls within the remit of PPIG, then please do not
hesitate to contact the Local Chair, Johanna Hunt at [log in to unmask]
