[PVS] [se-seafood] Seafood 2010: keynote speakers



Dear all,

We are happy to announce two SEAFOOD keynotes by luminaries of the 
software industry: Ivar Jacobson, one of the designers of UML, 
well-known for many contributions including his work on use cases; and 
Richard Soley, chairman
and CEO of the Object Management Group, the body in charge of UML, 
CORBA, MDA and many other technologies.

You will find attached the call for papers.

With best Regards,
SEAFOOD 2010 organizers

Conference location
---------------
SEAFOOD 2010 will for the first time take place in Russia, site of a thriving 
software outsourcing industry. The conference will be held at Saint Petersburg 
State University in Peterhof (Petrodvorets), near Peter the Great's magnificent 
Summer Palace. Saint Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in the world 
and the site of the Hermitage museum, is easily accessible by bus or boat; pre- 
and post-conference tours of Saint Petersburg will be available for 
participants and their companions.

About SEAFOOD
---------------
Industrial software development as practiced today is increasingly distributed: 
teams cooperate across many different locations. This new state of affairs is 
in particular the result of software outsourcing and offshoring (see an article) 
on this topic, but exists even in the absence of outsourcing. The software 
engineering implications of distributed development are considerable.

SEAFOOD 2010, the fourth in the SEAFOOD series, examines distributed software 
development from a software engineering perspective. Its goals include:
* Highlighting problems faced by industry and provide a forum to share good 
  practices.
* Spotlighting new processes, models, techniques and tools emerging from 
  research efforts that are crucial to distributed development, and provide an 
  opportunity for industry transfer.
* Building a community of educators either offering or planning to offer global 
  software development experiences for students, so as to share project plans 
  and lessons.
  
SEAFOOD 2010 will provide a highly structured and interactive forum for its 
participants. The conference will include many practical sessios including an 
industry panel and a educational panel.

---------------
Topics
---------------
We particularly invite high-quality papers that focus on processes, techniques 
and tools to understand, communicate and deliver on business needs in globally 
distributed software projects.

Broader topics of interest include, but are certainly not limited to, the 
following dimensions of globally distributed software projects:
* Strategic dimensions - scope decisions; cost/benefit analysis; value 
  propositions; risk assessment and management; vendor selection.
* Process and management dimensions - process models, including distributed 
  agile; project management; team organization; customer/supplier engagement 
  and relationship management; supply chain management; knowledge transfer and 
  management; project governance; quality assurance; metrics and measurement.
* Development dimensions - requirements engineering; system specification; 
  architecture; configuration management; traceability; testing; maintenance; 
  deployment.
* Infrastructure dimensions - technology and tooling.
* Social dimensions - effect of cultural differences on communication, 
  coordination and collaboration; socialisation and community building.
* Foundational dimensions - requirements and constraints that characterise 
  offshore and outsourced processes; comparative studies of globally 
  distributed, near-sourced and co-located software development.

---------------
Submissions
---------------
We invite original submissions of high quality papers in 3 distinct categories.

* Research papers - technical solutions, empirical studies and survey papers. 
  Research papers are expected to explain how the problem being addressed is 
  relevant to the conference topics, describe the research approach, and 
  solution papers are further to include preliminary validation.
  
* Industry practice papers - country, industry and domain-specific reports. 
  Industry papers are expected to provide sufficient context for understanding 
  the challenges and insights, and to make the more general lessons for global 
  software development clear to others.
  
* Education and training papers - experience and proposal papers. Education 
  papers are expected to explain the pedagogical goals of the work, critique 
  their attainment (or not) and provide guidance for other educators.

In all 3 categories: 
* Full papers (up to 15 pages)
* Short/position/vision papers (up to 6 pages)
