Abstract : The 2013 TSP Symposium was organized by the Software Engineering Institute and took place September 16-19 in Dallas, Texas. The goal of the TSP Symposium is to bring together practitioners and academics who share a common passion to change the world of software engineering for the better through disciplined practice. The conference theme was When Software Really Matters, which explored the idea that when product quality is critical, high-quality practices are the best way to achieve it. In keeping with that theme, the community contributed a variety of technical papers describing their experiences and research using the Personal Software Process (PSP) and Team Software Process (TSP). This year's report contains four papers that focus on PSP in an academic environment with somewhat broader implications, not only for TSP but also for new process introduction. Among other things, the papers selected this year show that PSP provides a consistent empirical platform that lends itself to both effective instruction and valid experimentation. The papers are as follows: Demonstrating the Impact of the PSP on Software Quality and Effort: Eliminating the Programming Learning Effect, An Analysis of Student Performance During the Introduction of the PSP: An Empirical Cross-Course Comparison, Incorporating Some PSP Practices into Introductory Programming Courses: A Case Study in Universidad del Quindio, and Factors Affecting Productivity Performance in PSP Training.
