The Workshop on Alternative Workforces for Software Engineering (WAWSE) 2015 will be held on December 1st, 2015 in New Delhi, India as part of the Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC).

This workshop is cross-disciplinary, concerning the broad spectrum of crowdsourcing and alternative workforces with applications to software development and engineering. Topics of interest include open source, collaborative work, empirical studies, crowdsourcing, policy, and design as they relate to software engineering. The goal of the workshop is to promote the scientific exchange of advances in among researchers, engineers, and practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines who may otherwise not have the opportunity to interact.
