research stage: Call for papers

´╗┐We are proud to announce a Research Stage at the Agile India 2012 conference to be held in  February 17-19th, 2012 in Bengaluru, India. The popularity of Agile software development in industries around the world has been reflected in the increasing number of researches on the topic. The Research stage is specifically designed to bring together researchers and academics from around the world and showcase both validated results as well as new and emerging ideas in Agile research.

We invite researchers and academics to submit their contributions to the Research Stage. We aim at bridging the gap between research and practice, and encourage submission of case studies, action research studies, grounded theory studies, experiments, surveys and literature reviews. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Architecture and Design
  • Customer Collaboration
  • Distributed Teams
  • Large-scale Studies of Agile Practice
  • Lean Principles and Applications
  • Management and Business Issues
  • Self-organization and Self-management
  • Leadership
  • Coaching and Mentoring
  • Team Dynamics and Culture
  • Tools and Applications
  • User Experience and Interaction Design
  • Agile in the Classrooms

There are three types of submissions invited for the Research stage:

  • Full-papers: We invite researchers to submit original research work that has led to significant and  validated results. Full-papers are limited to 10 pages. Authors are required to describe motivation for research, research design/method and results. A discussion of background and related literature is recommended. Authors of accepted full-papers will be invited to give a short presentation at the conference.
  • Short-papers: We invite researchers to submit original research work that explore new ideas and/or   have emerging results. Short-papers are limited to 4 pages. Authors of accepted short-papers will be invited to prepare a poster summarizing their work.
  • Position-papers: We now also invite 2 page position papers on proposed/early Agile research to allow researchers to benefit from early feedback from international experts on their proposed/emerging research as well as introduce innovative/speculative research topics.

Submissions and Review

Papers will undergo a rigorous double-blind peer-review process, by reviewers selected from the program committee. Both full-papers and short-papers will be published in the electronic proceedings and indexed in IEEE Xplore. Papers must follow the IEEE Proceedings format
to be reviewed ( Submissions must be in PDF format and author information must be removed from submissions to facilitate double-blind review process.
