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.
In addition to the main tracks of the conference, XP hosts a variety of high-quality workshops, providing a forum for groups of 20-40 (or more) participants to meet and discuss research questions with peers to mature new and exciting ideas, which may optionally be recorded in formal proceedings. Research workshops are usually very effective to help on defining new research agendas for collaboration, and incubating scientific communities.
We invite scientific workshop proposals on agile related topics, to discuss or present results of research and practice, in one half or full-day. We welcome both already existing well-known workshops and new cutting-edge workshops in innovative topics. If there is a topic relevant to XP that you feel passionate about, and you want to connect with others who have similar interests, you should consider submitting a proposal to organize a workshop!
Workshop proponents may define the format of the workshop, and we more than welcome new, and unconventional ideas for workshop formats, ranging from traditional mini-conferences, more presentation-oriented, to highly interactive sessions, to act as retreats for domain experts, or agenda-setting opportunities. Common activities at workshops also include poster sessions, hands-on practical work, and focus groups.
Workshops at XP 2018 may be held before or after (Monday or Friday) the main conference days (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). Participation in XP research workshops is preferably open. We encourage the workshops that include presentation of research papers to publish the accepted papers in a separate volume of the XP proceedings, which will be prepared to be archived by Springer.
Proposal submitters should feel free to direct questions about workshop formats to the workshop chairs.
Submissions will be first screened on relevance and attractiveness, and then evaluated by members of the program committee, mostly based on the following criteria:
The XP 2019 venue has a large capacity, therefore all proposals meeting the evaluation criteria above are very likely to be accepted.
Proposals must conform to the LNBIP formatting and submission instructions (see instructions for authors) and must include the following information (max. 5 pages):
Workshop organizers are responsible for advertising the workshop (e.g., sending calls for contributions to relevant mailing lists), managing the workshop web site, organizing the reviewing process (e.g., by forming a small program committee), running the workshop, and collating any results of the workshop for dissemination.
Workshop proposals must be submitted electronically via EasyChair no later than the deadline, but we encourage to submit as sooner as possible, to allow time for refinements, if needed and possible.
All dates are defined as AoE (Anywhere on Earth).
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the program chairs at email@example.com.
All tracks and sessions of XP 2019 are available at the conference website along with the specific call for submissions, dates, committees, and guidelines.
