Papers at ICSE 2019
In 2018, the HELENA team was quite busy working on and analyzing the data. Eventually, 21 team members came together and wrote the paper “Catching up with Method and Process Practice: An Industry-Informed Baseline for Researchers“, which was submitted to the Software Engineering in Practice Track of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE-SEIP) and was accepted for publication. You can find the accepted manuscript (author version) of the paper here.
Another team came together and set up a small study complementing the HELENA main study. In this study, teachers have been contacted and surveyed regarding the frameworks, methods and practices they teach, and how these relate to practice. The paper “Walking through the Method Zoo: Does Higher Education really meet Software Industry Demands?” was submitted to the Software Engineering Education Track of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE-SEET) and was accepted for publication. You can find the accepted manuscript (author version) of the paper here.
Paper at ICSSP 2019
Finally, a team of nine authors lead by Paolo Tell analyzed the HELENA-2 data to provide an initial answer to the question what are hybrid methods made of? The team submitted the paper “What are Hybrid Development Methods Made Of? An Evidence-based Characterization” to the International Conference on Software and Systems Process (ICSSP), which was co-located with ICSE 2019. The paper was accepted for presentation and, what makes us really proud, received the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award ICSSP 2019!

Right after ICSSP, the HELENA team members available met to discuss the current state of the initiative. Also, future activities have been discussed – and many new plans were made…
So, we look back to a great ICSE and ICSSP week in Montreal. Thanks to the whole team!
