Is Water-Scrum-Fall Reality? On the Use of Agile and Traditional Development Practices
The results clearly show that companies enact context-specific hybrid solutions in which traditional and agile development approaches are used in combination, despite the assumed dominance of agile methods.
Criteria for software process tailoring: a systematic review
This paper presents a collection of 49 tailoring criteria for the tailoring of software processes as the outcomes of a systematic literature review and analyzes the impact of these criteria by relating them to a set of 20 exemplary tailoring actions, which affect the project-specific software process.
Hybrid software and system development in practice: waterfall, scrum, and beyond
This paper reports on a survey on hybrid software development approaches, and shows that most combinations follow a pattern in which a traditional process model serves as framework in which several fine-grained (agile) practices are plugged in.

This article presents an experience-based guideline to aid researchers in designing systematic literature studies with special emphasis on the data collection and selection procedures, and provides recommendations for the general study design, data collection, and study selection procedures.
Software process improvement: a systematic mapping study on the state of the art
An updated systematic mapping study of SPI shows a high number of solution proposals, experience reports, and secondary studies, but only few theories and models on SPI in general, and helps directing future research by identifying under-researched topics awaiting further investigation.

The outcomes of the analysis show GSE as a field highly attached to industry and, thus, a considerable share of ICGSE papers address the transfer of Software Engineering concepts and solutions to the global stage.
What industry wants from academia in software testing?: Hearing practitioners' opinions
This short paper aims to draw the community's attention to the important issue of strengthening IAC with the hope of more IAC in software testing in the areas of most importance to the industry.
Hybrid Software Development Approaches in Practice: A European Perspective
The surveyed companies applied hybrid development approaches to specific projects even when company-wide policies for process usage existed. These approaches emerged from the evolution of different…

It is the goal that the term artefact be standardised so that researchers and practitioners have a common understanding for discussions and contributions and a metamodel is contributed that provides a description of an artefact that is independent from any underlying process model.

It is concluded that, even though Scrum allows for extensive modification, Scrum itself represents a barrier for global software engineering, and development teams have to customize Scrum properly to benefit from agile software development in GSE.
