Call for Submissions – Research Workshops

AI for Agile Software Engineering (AI4ASE)

25th International Conference on Agile Software Development
June 4-7, 2024 • Bolzano, Italy

  • Workshop paper submissions: April 19, 2024
  • Workshop paper notifications: May 14, 2024
  • Camera-ready versions of accepted papers: TBD (post-conference date)

* All dates are defined as the end of the day anywhere on Earth (AoE). Please note that some dates may change.

Call and Topics of Interest

The workshop seeks to develop knowledge and build a network related to the impact that AI-enabled solutions (tools, models, methods, etc.) will have on Agile software engineering practices.

The workshop will be a venue and a platform to bring together researchers and practitioners to share ideas and insights, and to spur collaboration for further development and learning.

The workshop will consist of three segments:

  1.  Introductions and keynotes highlighting recent advancements, serving as an inspiration for the workshop’s themes. Presenters include selected proposal authors and invited experts.
  2. Guided discussions or Open Space forums, adapted based on audience size, focusing on main themes. Key points and conclusions will be documented for post-workshop summaries.
  3. Developing a Research Agenda, inviting participants to contribute towards defining how AI impacts agile software engineering practices and research.

Within this scope, the workshop will cover themes including (but not limited to):

  • AI Integration in Agile Development (e.g., how Generative AI tools such as Copilot and GPT fit into existing practices)
  • Data-Driven Decision-Making in Agile (AI needs data, how can data from systems aid in agile decision making, e.g., on team level, in agile transformation)
  • AI in Agile Project Management (e.g., how can AI augment, or aid scrum masters, product owners and product managers)
  • Ethical and Legal Considerations of AI in Software Engineering (e.g., concerns related to IP, AI energy footprint)
  • Collaborative Tools and Techniques in Agile Development (e.g., use of collaboration tools, practices for sharing, and coordinating in the age of AI)
  • Future Trends in AI and Agile Methodologies (e.g., new methods for SE, prompt engineering vis-a-vis coding, agile prompt engineering methods) High quality submissions to the workshop can potentially be invited to a special issue on AI4SE in IST.

Submission Guidelines

We invite contributions in the form of papers and/or presentations.

Papers can be up to 8 pages. 

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. 

Topics should align with the workshop themes, emphasizing novel research, case studies, practical experiences, or new and exciting ideas. 

Submissions should provide value to both academic and/or industry participants.

There is no limit on the number of submissions an author may submit, but authors are advised to focus on quality rather than quantity.

All submissions must conform to the LNBIP formatting and submission instructions. Read the instructions for authors here.

If the submission is accepted, at least one of the authors needs to attend the conference, as the workshop will run in person.

All submissions must be done electronically via EasyChair by the defined deadline.


The XP 2024 workshops conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) as Open Access.

Submissions will be screened on rigor and relevance and then evaluated by program committee members based on soundness, significance, novelty, verifiability, and presentation quality.


For more information, please contact the Workshop Chair, Dr. Astri Barbala (email).
