ICSOB 2014 - The 5th International Conference on Software Business

Call for Tutorials

The 5th International Conference on Software Systems (ICSOB'14) tutorial program will highlight tutorials on a variety of software business topics relevant to industry, academic, and government to help attendees increase their knowledge, skills, and awareness of established and emerging software business practices. In particular tutorials that focus on the theme of ICSOB'14, shortening the time-to-market - from short cycle times to continuous value delivery, are very welcome. Tutorials about other aspects of software business, e.g. software platforms and ecosystems, corporate networks, business impacts of cloud computing, software product management, licensing, Intellectual Property and Patent Issues (IP modularity), business models for software startups and existing software companies, app economy, productization, servification, and servitization, impact of megatrends on software business (e.g. customization), effects of business models on software development, global and cultural aspects of software business and mobile software business trends are also very welcome.

Tutorial attendees can expect to leave a tutorial with new ideas and skills applicable to their profession or research area. We invite you to submit proposals for full day (7-hour) or half-day (3.5-hour) tutorials. In addition to the topics listed above, we welcome proposals on any topic in software business.
