May 25-27, 2005, Beijing, China





This 2005 Software Process Workshop will provide a forum for assessing current and emerging software process capabilities with respect to the challenges, and for obtaining insights into the software process research directions needed to address the challenges and make progress toward overriding goals. It will include initial presentations by leading international software process researchers and users, presentations of contributed papers on process challenges areas and solution approaches, tool demonstrations, and a closing panel on software process research directions.

Call for Papers

Contributed papers on software process challenges and solution approaches will be included in a proceedings by a leading publisher. Papers are solicited in all areas spanning the spectrum of software process experiences, characterizations, and approaches. Some specific examples of topics of interest are: process content (document-driven, change-driven, architecture-driven, risk-driven, stakeholder-driven, etc.); process representation and analysis; process tools and metrics; and human factors in the software process. But these are examples only, and the workshop seeks papers across the broad spectrum of macroprocess and microprocess issues.
