XP 2020 — 21st International Conference on Agile Software Development
An Agile Alliance Event
June 8-12, 2020 Copenhagen, Denmark
All dates are defined as end of day anywhere on earth.
For years sustainability has been a concern for many communities, including those who work in Agile software development. The definition of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has provided more concrete dimensions for sustainability since at the heart of the Agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Organizations are currently redefining strategic objectives and processes so that all these can be better aligned with these 17 SDGs. Sustainability dimensions are defined using different concepts, e.g. Human, Environmental, and Economic.
It seems like the right time to study Agile and Sustainability in depth and from a new and more fresh perspective, seeking the mutual benefits of both Agile and Sustainability. It should not be forgotten that Agile was born on top of a set of values, principles, and practices and, in this respect, Agile is different to other development paradigms. The relationship and impact that the Agile paradigm and the Agile software development approach have 1) on the sustainability dimensions and 2) on the SDGs must be thoroughly considered. Issues such as resources (human, technical…) and energy consumption both from the process and product perspectives are relevant.
This workshop will have two parts: in the first part long paper and short/position papers will be presented. In the second part, taking as inputs the papers presented, participants inputs, the UN SDGs and the sustainability dimensions, a shared agenda for Agile and Sustainability will be proposed.
This Workshop is designed as a place where academics and practitioners can share their own points of view, with the common goal of building the mentioned shared agenda.
This workshop welcomes both researchers and practitioners. We invite submissions of unpublished high-quality research papers (full, max 7 pages and short, max 4 pages) and position papers (max 4 pages) related to Agile and Lean Sustainability on issues of concern to researchers or practitioners, or both.
The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:
Submissions will be first screened on rigor and relevance and then evaluated by at least three members of the program committee based on soundness, significance, novelty, verifiability, and presentation quality.
All submissions must conform to the LNBIP formatting and submission instructions. See the instructions for authors here.
The paper length should not exceed the above mentioned page limits.
There is no limit on the number of submissions an author may submit, but authors are advised to focus on quality rather than quantity.
Accepted papers will appear in the XP 2020 post-conference proceedings to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) and will be open access.
