PROFES 2017 will host three co-located workshops that will complement and enhance the main conference program, offering a wider knowledge perspective around the conference topics.
- HELENA – 2nd Workshop on Hybrid Software and System Development Approaches
- HuFo – 3rd International Workshop on Human Factors in Software Development Processes
- QuASD – 1st International Workshop on Managing Quality in Agile and Rapid Software Development Processes
HELENA – 2nd Workshop on Hybrid Software and System Development Approaches
A software process is the game plan to organize project teams and run projects. Yet, it still is a challenge to select the appropriate development approach for the respective context. A multitude of development approaches compete for the users’ favor, but there is no silver bullet serving all possible setups. Moreover, recent research as well as experience from practice shows companies utilizing different development approaches to assemble the best-fitting approach for the respective company: a more traditional process provides the basic framework to serve the organization, while project teams embody this framework with more agile (and/or lean) practices to keep their flexibility.
This workshop addresses the community work initiated at ICSSP 2016 (Austin, TX); in particular, the HELENA survey with which we aim to investigate the use of “Hybrid dEveLopmENt Approaches in software systems development”.The workshop aims at bringing together all (academic) contributors and further interested people.

HuFo – 3rd International Workshop on Human Factors in Software Development Processes
Software development is a human intensive activity whatever the underlying production process it is based on. Though both software engineering (SE) and human-computer interaction (HCI) communities aim towards creating better software products, the two communities are still far from being synergic while they could both gain from a better integration. The overall goal of this interdisciplinary workshop is to raise the level of engagement and discussion about human factors in software product engineering and development processes in order to identify opportunities to improve the quality of scientific results and improvements on human aspects of software product development.

QuASD – 1st International Workshop on Managing Quality in Agile and Rapid Software Development Processes
Optimal management of software quality demands for appropriate integration of quality management activities into the whole software (engineering) life-cycle. However, despite the competitive advantage of ensuring and maintaining high quality levels, software development methodologies still prove to offer little support to the integration and management of quality. This is especially true for, and essential in, agile software development (ASD) processes and the more recent trends towards rapid and continuous software development. The premise is that faster and more frequent release cycles should not compromise quality. The workshop aims to exchange challenges, experiences, and solutions among researchers and practitioners in the aforementioned areas to bring agile and rapid software processes a step further to seamless integrating quality management activities into their practices.
