CALL FOR PAPERS

Meeting Challenges and Surviving Success: The 2nd Workshop on Open
Source
Software Engineering
http://opensource.ucc.ie/icse2002

The 2nd Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering is an official
event
(http://www.icse-conferences.org/2002/info/workshops.html) of the 24th
International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2002), which will
be
held in Orlando, FL, USA from May 19-25, 2002.

The workshop is currently scheduled for Saturday May 25, and is a
one-day
event. The workshop is limited to 35 participants.

In May 2001, "Making Sense of the Bazaar: The 1st Workshop on Open
Source
Software Engineering" was held at the 23rd International Conference on
Software Engineering (ICSE 2001) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  Since
then,
interest in Open Source Software (OSS) has continued to gain momentum,
both
in the practitioner and research communities.  The goal of this year's
workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss
both
the short and long term sustainability of OSS. Specifically, the
workshop
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
and
user communities, and the viability and profitability of OSS business
models.

The discussion will be organized around four key themes:

1. The quality and maintainability of OSS products.  This includes, but
is
not limited to, the reliability, availability, security, and usability
of
OSS products and tools; the architectural characteristics of OSS
products
and tools; and the current and future roles played by OSS products and
tools
in different application spaces. Of particular interest is the
phenomenon of
"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
process
and tool kit. This includes, but is not limited to, dialogue and
knowledge
transfer between OSS and traditional software engineering approaches and
tool use; comparisons between OSS and other methods of software
engineering;
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
communities.
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)
OSS
development teams and emergent, volunteer communities.

4. The viability and profitability of OSS business models. This
includes,
but is not limited to, the sustainability of pure-play OSS business
models;
the emergence of hybrid proprietary-OSS business models; and the impact
of
intellectual property law on OSS.

Position Papers:
All participants are strongly encouraged to submit a position paper of
no
more than 3 pages, addressing one or more of the workshop themes
described
above, or related issues. Position Papers should follow the guidelines
at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.

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
Feller
at jfeller at afis.ucc.ie.

Position papers will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee (see below)
and
accepted papers will be published in the official workshop proceedings
and
on the workshop website.  Four position papers will be selected to be
delivered as mini-presentations on the day of the workshop.

Organizing Committee:
Joseph Feller, University College Cork, Ireland (Chair)
Brian Fitzgerald, University of Limerick, Ireland
Frank Hecker, CollabNet, Inc., USA
Scott A. Hissam, Software Engineering Institute, USA
Karim Lakhani, MIT Sloan School of Management, USA
André van der Hoek, University of California - Irvine, USA.
