XP 2019 — 20th International Conference on Agile Software and Systems Development
An Agile Alliance Event
May 21-25 – Montréal, Québec, Canada
XP, the International Conference on Agile Software and System Development, is the premier agile software development conference, providing a unique forum where researchers, practitioners, agile thought leaders, coaches, and trainers present and discuss their most recent innovations, research results, experiences, trends and concerns in the field of Agile Software and System Development.
XP2019 marks the 20th edition of the “First Conference in Agile”. Whether you are new to agile, a seasoned practitioner, an executive, or a researcher – XP will provide you with a broad-based learning and networking experience. The theme for XP2019 will be “Agile – the Next 20 Years: Share and Discover!”
Agile continues to advance – and the focus of the XP conference program has expanded over the years. While the first XP conference focused on eXtreme Programming and pre-dated the “Agile Manifesto” – XP2019 solicits contributions that address all modern agile approaches, as well as the application of agile to applications including but not limited to: DevOps, FinTech, AI/ML, IoT, and other mission critical systems with global reach.
The XP 2019 conference will be in downtown Montréal at the École de technologie supérieure, an engineering school part of the Université du Québec network. A renowned metropolis in the province of Québec that is among the largest cities in North America, Montréal is home to multiple and diverse attractions. In addition to the large Francophone population, there is also a sizable Anglophone community and many cultural communities, which gives the city a cosmopolitan flair. Boasting a human dimension in a city where everyone feels safe, Montréal features vibrant neighbourhoods and numerous green spaces, along with restaurants to suit every taste and budget.
We invite submissions of unpublished high-quality research papers (full and short) related to agile and lean software development. We welcome submissions addressing topics across the full spectrum of agile software development, broadly on agile, on issues of concern to researchers or practitioners (or both).
