XP 2021

June 14-18, 2021


Welcome to XP 2021

22nd International Conference on Agile Software Development

June 14-18 – Online


XP 2021: Agile turns Twenty while the world goes online 

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 2021 will provide an informal environment to learn and trigger discussion.

2021 marks 20 years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, making it a good time to reflect on the past, the present and the future of Agile. The strength of XP is the way it enables conversations and the exchange of ideas between academics and industry practitioners. After the challenges of 2020 and during these times of great change it is as important as ever for us to come together and share what we have learnt over the last year. The conference will run online for a second year which gives us the opportunity to reach out to a global and diverse audience, and we particularly welcome proposals from new contributors and new perspectives. So, we encourage contributions from regular attendees and newcomers, and look forward to meeting old and new friends in June 2021.
