INTEAMSE 2012 1st Workshop on Managing the Influence of People and Team Factors in SE
Software engineering (SE) studies software development principles, processes, methods and tools. SE is based not on well-grounded scientific principles but on a compendium of disciplines that are refined and evolved through application into a body of knowledge. Nowadays, key software development issues are primarily concerned not with techniques but with sociological aspects and human nature. More importantly, people play a major role as sources of information, activity performers and product users.
