CALL FOR PAPERS
Meeting Challenges and Surviving Success: The 2nd Workshop on Open
The 2nd Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering is an official
(http://www.icse-conferences.org/2002/info/workshops.html) of the 24th
International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2002), which will
held in Orlando, FL, USA from May 19-25, 2002.
The workshop is currently scheduled for Saturday May 25, and is a
event. The workshop is limited to 35 participants.
In May 2001, "Making Sense of the Bazaar: The 1st Workshop on Open
Software Engineering" was held at the 23rd International Conference on
Software Engineering (ICSE 2001) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Since
interest in Open Source Software (OSS) has continued to gain momentum,
in the practitioner and research communities. The goal of this year's
workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss
the short and long term sustainability of OSS. Specifically, the
will seek to address the quality and maintainability of OSS products and
tools, the replicability and portability of the OSS software engineering
process and tool kit, the stability and sustainability of OSS developer
user communities, and the viability and profitability of OSS business
The discussion will be organized around four key themes:
1. The quality and maintainability of OSS products. This includes, but
not limited to, the reliability, availability, security, and usability
OSS products and tools; the architectural characteristics of OSS
and tools; and the current and future roles played by OSS products and
in different application spaces. Of particular interest is the
"boot-strapping", i.e., the role of OSS software (both existing and
potential) in the development of OSS software.
2. The replicability and portability of the OSS software engineering
and tool kit. This includes, but is not limited to, dialogue and
transfer between OSS and traditional software engineering approaches and
tool use; comparisons between OSS and other methods of software
and the extent to which traditional software developers are able to
effectively adopt OSS tools and techniques.
3. The stability and sustainability of OSS developer and user
This includes, but is not limited to, the community-based management of
knowledge, reputation and trust; mechanisms and practices for effective
collaboration; and comparisons between company-led (or company-enabled)
development teams and emergent, volunteer communities.
4. The viability and profitability of OSS business models. This
but is not limited to, the sustainability of pure-play OSS business
the emergence of hybrid proprietary-OSS business models; and the impact
intellectual property law on OSS.
All participants are strongly encouraged to submit a position paper of
more than 3 pages, addressing one or more of the workshop themes
above, or related issues. Position Papers should follow the guidelines
Position papers should be submitted by March 15, 2002 using one of the
following formats: plain text, rich text, html, or MS-Word (yes, we
appreciate the irony). Send position papers and inquiries to Joseph
at jfeller at afis.ucc.ie.
Position papers will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee (see below)
accepted papers will be published in the official workshop proceedings
on the workshop website. Four position papers will be selected to be
delivered as mini-presentations on the day of the workshop.
