Collaboration, Conflict and Control: The 4th Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering
The 4th Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering was held in Edinburgh, Scotland, on May 25, 2004 as part of The 26th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2004). The goal of the workshop was to bring together researchers and practitioners for the purpose of discussing the platforms and tools, the techniques and processes, and the organizational structures that are used to support and sustain:
- Communication and collaboration within and between developer and user communities.
- The resolution of conflict within development projects. This is to be addressed on many different levels, from deciding on improvements to be included in a particular release, to reconciling the goals of not-for-profit community organizations and their industrial collaborators.
- Effective leadership and control of development activities, and of the evolution of specific products. Again, this is to be addressed on many different levels, from the management of code commit privileges in a single project, to the roles played by non-governmental standards builders (e.g. the Internet Engineering Task Force and the World Wide Web Consortium) and governmental policy makers.
