The ICGSE 2008 Organizing Committee invites workshop proposals for the IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE) which will take place from August 17-20, 2008 in Bangalore, India.
The purpose of these workshops is to provide an interesting platform for participants to discuss relevant technical issues, exchange research ideas, stimulate thought process and to develop community in this fast-moving, rapidly evolving, multidisciplinary field of global software engineering. We encourage a diversity of workshops, including those that bring together inter-disciplinary approaches to global software engineering, support the interaction of research and industry in this area.
The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers. Workshops can vary in length from a half-day to a full-day.

Requirements for Workshop Proposal Submission
Proposals for workshops should be no more than 3 pages in length, preferably 1-2 pages. They should contain the following information:
