The ICGSE 2008 offers 2 half-day tutorials that will discuss different aspects of global software engineering. Tutorials will take place on August 17.
Tutorial chair: Darja Smite, University of Latvia

Tutorial 1: Cultural challenges in Software Outsourcing and how to overcome them (full-day tutorial)(Cancelled)

Tutorial 2: Risk management of distributed software development (half-day tutorial)
Juho Mäkiö (Department Leader in the Research Centre of Information Technology (FZI) in Karlsruhe, Germany) and Rafael Prikladnicki (Assistant Professor at PUCRS, in Porto Alegre, Brazil)
Distributed software development is increasingly used by the software industry. This tendency may be reasoned in many ways. First, it allows firms and organizations an access to a large pool of software professionals. Second, it may reduce the development costs or shorten the development duration. But, however, compared with traditional way of software development the distributed software development is more risky making the attainment of the excepted results uncertain. This introductory tutorial is designed to provide a perspective on risk management of distributed software development. The presented risk management concepts are discussed focusing on various phases of a distributed software development (DSD) project in respect of risk elimination and risk mitigation.

Tutorial 3: Empirical Research in Global Software Engineering: Concepts, Methods, and Challenges (full-day tutorial)(Cancelled)

Tutorial 4: Processes for Multi-Site Software Development (half-day tutorial)
Daniel J. Paulish (Distinguished Member of Technical Staff, Siemens Corporate Research, USA), Alberto Avritzer (Member of Technical Staff, Siemens Corporate Research, USA) and Raghvinder Sangwan (Assistant Professor, Penn State University, USA)
Coordinating, managing, and ensuring the quality of development artifacts are difficult for globally distributed software development projects due to time, space, communications, and cultural problems. Global software development projects not only require new processes, but software development tools must also be standardized across the various development sites. A number of experimental processes being used on distributed development projects are summarized, and the lessons learned from such projects are discussed.

Tutorial 5: Collaborative Work Environments, Groupware, and CSCW Systems for Computer Aided Software Enginering - Requirements Specification and Acceptance Testing (Cancelled)
