Announcing new ICSE 2011 Focus Area sponsored by the ACM-Sigsoft Impact Project

ICSE 2011 will be devoting one or more sessions to a special identified focus area on the impact of software engineering research on software development practice.  The Impact Project invites the submission to this focus area of original papers that make a contribution towards the better understanding of such issues as:

  • How specific software development technologies and practices that are currently in widespread use have come into being.
  • What contributions to contemporary software development technology have been made by specific software engineering research activities.
  • What contributions to other fields, in Computer Science and elsewhere, have been made by specific software engineering research activities.
  • What specific approaches to technology transition have proven to have been particularly effective and successful.
  • What obstacles to the understanding and/or transition of software engineering research products have hindered their acceptance and transition.

    All papers accepted for the Impact Project focus area will be presented in sessions at ICSE 2011, and will appear in the conference proceedings.  For more information, please see the Impact Project Focus Area Call for Papers .
