TSP Symposium 2014 Goes Beyond Methodology to Focus on Software Quality
• Press Release
Pittsburgh, Pa., April 7, 2014—The Team Software Process (TSP) Symposium 2014 technical program will go beyond the core methodology of TSP to encompass a broader range of complementary practices that contribute to peak performance on system and software projects. The unifying theme of the conference is quality. Ultimately, a quality product and service must be delivered on time and within budget, be secure, be sustainable, and provide value to end users. The TSP Symposium 2014 will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, November 3–6 and is being presented in collaboration with IEEE Software magazine.
Teams using the TSP have achieved unprecedented quality and productivity improvements. Many benefits, however, accrue from incorporating other aspects of engineering, leadership, and culture change into the disciplined practices of TSP.
In addition to submissions covering the core methodology of TSP, this year the program committee invites submissions that address other aspects of long-term sustainable achievement. Proposals for any presentation related to software quality are welcome. Specific topics being sought include the following:
- overcoming obstacles in introducing TSP
- disciplined measurement practices
- culture change
- the executive view
- Agile practices
- Personal Software Process (PSP) and TSP in academics
Submissions for the TSP Symposium 2014 technical program covering TSP and complementary practices are now being accepted at http://www.sei.cmu.edu/tspsymposium/2014/. The deadline is May 16 to submit proposals for 40-minute experience-report presentations, 90-minute participatory sessions, and full-day and half-day tutorials to the online submission system. Registration opens in mid-June.
