Become a Volunteer at XP2020!

XP 2020 would not be successful if it weren’t for our volunteers. They help with a number of different activities, from registration to supporting the local organizing team. Volunteering at XP 2020 enables you to meet and network with leading international researchers and practitioners from across the globe who share common interests in Agile software development. It is also a great way to meet other students from different parts of the world.

We welcome undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students who want to join the volunteer team and contribute to XP 2020. We also extend this opportunity to a few industry practitioners who are motivated and share interests in Agile software development and who otherwise could not attend the conference.
