1st International Workshop on
Affective Software Engineering
Gdansk, Poland, 11 - 14 September, 2016


In the field of Software Engineering technical and managerial issues have been thoroughly covered in numerous studies. However, software development depends also significantly on personal capabilities of involved people. It also requires intensive cooperation among individuals with different personalities. Therefore, factors such as mood, emotions,fatigue or emotional intelligence may have a significant impact on information technology projects.

Therefore interest in the role of the human factors in the processes of software development is growing. However, the research is focused mainly on Human-Computer Interaction (user perspective). Recent years brought new insights to apply the knowledge on human emotions in IT project management and software engineering.

The aim of the workshop is to share knowledge about the role and the impact of the human factors in the software development process and to promote affective computing methods applications in the field of software engineering. Workshop welcomes submissions on social aspects of software development and design, as well as methods and tools development for affect recognition, interpretation and expression for software engineering.

Topics of interest:

1st International Workshop on Affective Software Engineering is part of the FedCSIS Multiconference. Since 2012, Proceedings of the FedCSIS conference are indexed in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science.

Important dates

Papers submissions

We invite submissions of scientific papers related to the workshop topics of interest. The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages IEEE style (including tables, figures and references). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop. Preprints containing accepted papers will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented at the conference will be published in Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® database. Conference proceedings will be published in a volume with ISBN, ISSN and DOI numbers and posted at the conference WWW site.
