The Agile2016 Submission System is Open!

Added to The Alliance

This day has finally arrived and we’re all excited to let you know that the submission system for the Agile 2016 conference has opened! You should all rush out immediately and begin to submit the sessions you’ve been thinking about, considering, and generally obsessing over since the last conference.

For those of you who are first-time submitters, we have prepared some advice for you about the process and the expectations of reviewers that is available on the Agile2016 conference site. Much of this information will also be valuable to those who have submitted before, so please take a look.
