Authors are invited to submit a full or short paper using the Springer LNCS format ( The submissions may describe experiences, ideas, innovations, as well as concerns related to the integration of human factors in software processes.

About the type of paper submission, the authors have 2 options:

  1. Short papers: describing preliminary work, initial research results or vision papers proposing innovative approach, methods used in actual development processes (up to 7 pages).
  2. Full papers: reporting more substantial research or development work. The full papers should describe more mature research providing new knowledge into the problem areas described in the workshop themes (up to 16 pages).

Papers will be selected by the Program Committee considering their quality, topic relevance, innovation, and potentials to foster discussion. We aim at an interdisciplinary meeting, thus each submitted paper will be reviewed by two reviewers with different backgrounds providing authors with the information to make their contribution relevant and appealing for the workshop’s audience. At least one author from every accepted paper must plan to attend the workshop and present.

The papers can be submitted at:


The authors will be notified and the accepted papers will be published in the main Springer LNCS volume together with the main conference papers. We plan to contact key HCI/SE journals about their willingness to produce a special issue on human factors in software processes based on the best papers presented at the workshop.
