First Call for Papers

Submission deadline: 13th April 2015

We invite papers concerned with psychological aspects of software development.  
PPIG entertains a broad spectrum of research approaches, from theoretical 
perspectives drawing on psychological theory to empirical perspectives grounded 
in real-world experience, and is equally concerned with all aspects of 
programming and software engineering, from the design of programming languages 
to communication issues in software teams, and from computing education to 
high-performance professional practice.

Full details to follow shortly on the conference website. Any questions? Please 
ask Gail Ollis (, who will be happy to help.

Some ideas to help prompt you to start writing:

Programming online: how do online materials and resources impact upon the 
approaches, learning, tools, technologies and the interaction of programmers?

Empirical studies of programming
Programming education and skills acquisition
Programming and human cognition
Human Computer Interaction issues in programming
Collaborative programming
Software engineering methods, planning, estimation, agility etc.
Gender, age, culture and programming
New paradigms in programming
Code quality, readability and re‐use
Mistakes, bugs, and error handling

Other approaches and insights are also welcome.
