Collaboration and Knowledge Sharing in Software Development Teams

Software engineering is often faced with the challenges of large and distributed development teams that need to adhere to frequent changes and short release cycles. Effective collaboration and knowledge sharing are crucial in order to guarantee successful software development. Methods and tools that support development teams must be based on interdisciplinary research efforts that investigate technologies, tools, processes and human factors in a holistic manner. Only if we understand the interplay between the involved disciplines we are able to deliver methods and integrated tool solutions that provide suitable collaboration and knowledge sharing support for software development teams.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on different aspects of collaboration and knowledge sharing to discuss new results and future research challenges with regard to software development from different perspectives. One major goal is to define a research agenda and establish a community around the crosscutting topics of collaboration and knowledge sharing in software engineering.


The topics of the workshop include, but are not restricted to:

  • Collaboration and knowledge sharing in development teams and communities.
  • Lightweight and unobtrusive tools, Web 2.0 and Social Semantic Web applications, supporting development teams.
  • Concerns of individual developers in collaboration settings, such as learning, personal productivity, usability and incentives.
  • Approaches and tools for context-aware development and collaboration environments.
  • Assistance and recommendation tools based on team experience.
  • Research methods and approaches for analyzing and designing successful collaboration support.
  • Empirical studies on collaboration and information behavior in development teams.
  • Scientific analysis of the relation between methods/processes, tools and collaborative development practice.
