Recent Advances in Agile Software Product Development

Call for Papers

Agility is the ability of an enterprise to assimilate environmental change and acknowledge efficiently and effectively to that change. Agility will have causes and effects beyond the enterprise's immediate organizational boundaries. Agility is a business imperative, not just a technological one. The agile movement has made enormous strides in the last decade, greatly improving software delivery and creating more satisfactory work environments in many organizations. Agile methods software development approach is based on a set of values and principles of agile manifesto and significance of customer involvement and people factors. The purpose of the agile practices and principles of continuous delivery is to encourage greater collaboration between all stakeholders.

We aim to publish papers representing recent research and advanced practices related to theory, practical applications, and implications of agile methods. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

XP, scrum, crystal, lean software development, and other agile methods
Foundations and conceptual studies of agile methods
Agile architecting
Agile method adoption, adoption strategies, and critical success factors
Agile and lean transformation
Agile method tailoring
Agile development in large scale environments
Agile development and open source
Agile in offshore and distributed development
Agile development of embedded software
Agile and software product lines
Agile practices, for example, pair programming, test-first design, continuous integration, refactoring, and so forth
Agile method education and training
Agile software development tools
Business agility and implications
