1st International Workshop on Affective Software Engineering (WASE'16)

Gdansk, Poland, 11 - 14 September, 2016

In the field of Software Engineering technical and managerial issues have been thoroughly covered in numerous studies. However, software development depends also significantly on personal capabilities of involved people. It also requires intensive cooperation among individuals with different personalities. Therefore, factors such as mood, emotions,fatigue or emotional intelligence may have a significant impact on information technology projects.

Therefore interest in the role of the human factors in the processes of software development is growing. However, the research is focused mainly on Human-Computer Interaction (user perspective). Recent years brought new insights to apply the knowledge on human emotions in IT project management and software engineering.

The aim of the workshop is to share knowledge about the role and the impact of the human factors in the software development process and to promote affective computing methods applications in the field of software engineering. Workshop welcomes submissions on social aspects of software development and design, as well as methods and tools development for affect recognition, interpretation and expression for software engineering.
