'Soft' Software Engineering: Challenges & Some Hopes for the Future

'Soft' Software Engineering: Challenges & Some Hopes for the Future

Invited talk presented at the SEmotion ICSE workshop, May 28th, 2019, Montreal, Canada.

Abstract: Within the general trend of considering more and more human and "softer" aspects in Software Engineering, there has recently been a strong push for studying the emotions of developers and engineers. In this talk, we look at some challenges when doing interdisciplinary research involving psychology, behavioural aspects, and affect/emotion of software engineers. Based on our experience from studies in behavioural software engineering, we also highlight some hopes for the future of "soft" software engineering.
