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-day (6-hour) or half-day (3-hour) scientific workshop proposals on Agile-related topics to discuss or present results of research and practice. We welcome both already existing well-known workshops and new cutting-edge workshops in innovative topics. If there is a topic relevant to the topics of 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. The intention is that everybody learns from the experience, the organizers as well as the participants. Common activities at workshops also include poster sessions, hands-on practical work, and focus groups. Participation in XP research workshops is preferably open.
This call for participation is for workshop organizers only; a later call will occur for workshop attendees. Each workshop must have at least two organizers, preferably from different organizations.
If the workshop is accepted, at least one of the organizers needs to attend the conference, as the workshops will run in person.
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.
A workshop proposal of up to 5 pages should include:
Proposals must be submitted electronically via EasyChair or sent to the track chairs by the defined deadline. We recommend that organizers practice inclusivity and diversity when organizing their workshops.
Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop’s potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, and the organizers’ ability to lead a successful workshop. The acceptance notification date is January 12, 2024.
The workshop proposals will be assessed against the following criteria:
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the track chairs.
