XP 2020 — 21st International Conference on Agile Software Development
An Agile Alliance Event

The need for diversity is growing as a result of the fourth industrial revolution. Diverse teams are important elements of company innovation and future success. In the software industry, talk about diversity is focusing strongly on gender bias. But diversity is more than just gender – it can refer to age, race, skills, and different backgrounds. The need for more diverse teams and organizations also challenges those in management, coaching, and leadership. More research into best practices and new approaches is needed in order to create sustainable ways of implementing and improving more diverse ways to work.
This track welcomes short research and position papers (max 7 pages in LNBIP format) from researchers and practitioners around the topic of diversity and inclusion in Agile software development. We also invite experience case studies and best practices from practitioners in the form of talks or interactive sessions. We are interested in various viewpoints about the topic and welcome different angles to encourage discussion on the track. We are especially looking for new ideas and emerging areas in diversity and inclusion in Agile software development. Below are some topics of interest, but contributions beyond these are also encouraged:
The research and position papers on this track will be published in the XP 2020 post-conference proceedings. Papers will be evaluated by the program committee for quality, fit, and the novelty of the content.
We welcome submissions via Easychair. The maximum length of the research and position papers is 7 pages including references in Springer LNCS. The case studies and best practices from practitioners should be described in the submission with maximum length of 4 pages.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the track co-chairs.
