Call for Research Workshop Proposals

In addition to the main tracks, XP hosts a variety of high-quality workshops, providing a forum for groups of 20-40 (or more) participants to meet and discuss research questions with peers to share new and exciting ideas, which may optionally be written up and published in the formal proceedings. Research workshops are usually very effective for defining new research agendas, enhancing collaboration, and incubating scientific communities.

We invite full or half-day scientific workshop proposals on Agile and Lean related topics, to discuss or present results of research and practice. We welcome both already existing well-known workshops and new cutting-edge workshops on innovative topics. If there is a topic relevant to the XP conference that you feel passionate about and you want to connect with others who have similar interests, you should consider submitting a proposal to organize a workshop!

Workshop chairs may define the format of the workshop and we more than welcome new and unconventional ideas for workshop formats, ranging from traditional mini-conferences, more presentation-oriented, to highly interactive sessions, to act as retreats for domain experts, or agenda-setting opportunities. Common activities at workshops also include poster sessions, hands-on practical work, and focus groups. Participation in XP research workshops is preferably open.

Guidelines

The workshop proposals should include:

  • Title and abbreviation to use for advertising purposes
  • Theme and goals of the workshop and its relevance to the Agile community
  • Abstract with max. 200-words summarizing the theme and goals of the workshop to use for advertising purposes on the XP 2023 website
  • Organizers’ names, affiliations, expertise on the topics, experience on running workshops, responsibilities for the proposed workshop, and contact details indicating the primary organizer and contact person (not necessarily the same)
  • Expected number of participants (ideal, minimum, and maximum) and numbers of previous editions, and links (if any); please note that the workshop registration has additional fees on top of the main XP conference days
  • Planned advertisement for the workshop to promote participation
  • Program committee, including tentative and already committed members
  • Format of the workshop (e.g., introductory material, paper presentations, keynotes, focus groups, panel discussions, debates) and a preliminary timetable (e.g., half or full day)
  • Expected results and how they will be disseminated to the wider public after the workshop (e.g., proceedings, workshop website)
  • Any special requirements (e.g., room configuration, audio and video)
  • A 1-page draft of the call for submissions/participation
  • Workshop proposals should not exceed more than 5 pages
  • Workshop organizers are responsible for advertising the workshop (e.g., sending calls for contributions to relevant mailing lists), managing the workshop website, organizing the reviewing process (e.g., by forming a small program committee), running the workshop, and collating any results of the workshop for dissemination.

Submission

Proposals must be submitted electronically via EasyChair or sent to the track chairs by the defined deadline.

Evaluation

The workshop proposals will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • Relevance and importance of the topic addressed
  • Attractiveness and novelty of the topic for the Agile community, as well as other relevant communities
  • Potential of the workshop results to advance the state of Agile research and practice, either by forging a new research community or by creating new collaborations
  • The interactive nature of the workshop format, e.g., workshops stimulating discussions will be preferred to those based solely on presentations
  • Balance and synergy with respect to other workshops and co-located events
  • Ability of the workshop to attract and cater to mature research, new and emerging ideas, or preferably both
