Next events - Software Cost Estimation Challenge


Estimating software development effort is an essential part of getting new or improved software products to its intended end-users.

An effort estimate sets the expectations of the end-users as to when the software will be ready and what it will cost. Multiple sources show that estimating software development effort has a bad track-record, despite over fourty years of research on good software estimating practices.

The IWSM conference is devoted to promoting research and experience on good software estimating practices. To stimulate the use of good estimating practices, the IWSM conference is now challenging estimation practitioners and student teams to show their competence in estimating software development effort.
