Call for Participation: Agile 2007

August 13 - 17, Washington, DC, Marriott Renaissance Hotel

http://www.agile2007.org Deadline: January 26, 2007

Agile software development focuses on delivering business value early and often in the project lifetime with the ability to incorporate emergent requirements. It accentuates the use of rich, informal communication channels and frequent delivery of running, tested systems, while attending to the human aspect of software development.

Agile 2007 is the premier conference for people who are using, or wish to use, agile development principles to improve software development. The agile community will gather at Agile 2007 to share techniques and technologies, research and experience, and innovations for the managerial and technical sides of agile software development.

Agile 2007 seeks proposals for a wide range of topics including: developing, testing, individuals and teams, customers, planning, leadership, learning, innovation, process and process improvement, organizational change, project management, retrospectives, remote collaboration, and offshoring.

  • Tutorials
  • Research Papers
  • Experience Reports
  • Discovery Sessions
  • Educators' Symposium Presentations
  • Hands-on sessions
  • Beginners Track Presentations
  • Talking Heads
  • Research-in-Progress Workshop Presentations
  • Vendor Talks
