Deadline for paper submission: 30th of March 2009.

Conference Date: 24th, 25th and 26th of June, 2009.


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. If you have any queries as to whether your topic falls within the remit of PPIG, then please do not hesitate to contact the Program Chair.

Themes can include, but are not limited to:

  • Empirical studies of programming
  • Programming education and skills acquisition
  • Human centred design and evaluation of programming languages, tools and infrastructure
  • Programming and human cognition
  • Human Computer Interaction issues in programming
  • Team/cooperative work in programming
  • End user programming
  • Distributed programming, globalisation, work in large teams
  • Free/libre open source software development
  • 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
  • Working with notations in a software engineering context
  • Specialist and domain centred programming tools and languages
  • Other approaches and insights are welcome...


Submissions should be 15 pages or less (short papers and work in progress reports are welcome). To format your paper, please use the PPIG Word template or the PPIG Latex template (as per the website page: ). As in previous years, the programme committee will review all submitted papers and, based on their reviews, each accepted paper will be classified as a "Full Technical Paper", or a "Work in Progress Report". All papers accepted for presentation at PPIG 2009 will appear in the workshop proceedings and be archived on the PPIG website.
