COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update – XP 2020 is Currently Postponed

In light of evolving uncertainties related to COVID-19, the decision has been made to postpone XP 2020 — scheduled to take place June 8 – 12, in Copenhagen, Denmark — to a date in the future that has yet to be determined.

Due to the current environment, we have decided that there will be no physical event this year. We are working diligently to find the best way to present the conference content online and will keep you posted.

Please visit this page to keep up with the changes.

XP 2020 will be held June 8-12, 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Main Conference: Tuesday June 9th – Thursday June 11th

Workshop days: Monday June 8th & Friday June 12th: Several Research & Practice workshops.

XP is the premier Agile software development conference combining research and practice. It is a unique forum where Agile researchers, practitioners, thought leaders, coaches, and trainers get together to present and discuss their most recent innovations, research results, experiences, concerns, challenges, and trends. Whether you are new to Agile or a seasoned Agile practitioner, XP 2020 will provide an informal environment to learn and trigger discussions.

XP 2020 marks the 21st edition of the “First Conference in Agile”. 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”, XP 2020 solicits contributions that address all modern agile approaches, as well as the application of agile to applications including, but not limited to FinTech, AI/ML, IoT, and other mission-critical systems with global reach.


The XP 2020 conference will be organized in the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU), which is Denmark’s leading university focusing on IT research and education.

ITU is located in the center of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, and with a short reach to the Copenhagen International Airport (10 min by car, 25 min by public transportation).


XP 2020 will consist of a 5-day program with sessions that feature research papers, experience reports, keynotes, panels, both research and practical workshops, an agile leadership track, a doctoral symposium, an agile education and training track, lightning talks, networking receptions and an Open Space evening.
