Call for papers
6th International Workshop on Large-Scale Agile Development (LargeScaleAgile)
May 21, 2018
Agile software development methods were made for small, co-located development teams, but are increasingly applied in other settings. Several large projects, with a number of teams that develop complex systems have started to use agile methods. How to apply agile methods to large projects was identified as the "top burning research question" by practitioners at XP2010. At XP2013 to XP2017, this workshop has addressed research challenges in large-scale agile development and identified topics such as inter-team coordination, large project organization, release planning and architecture and practices to scaling agile methods (see https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=3120459.3120474 ).
For 2018, we especially seek contributions which present empirical studies of emerging frameworks for large-scale agile development such as the Scaled Agile Framework or Large-Scale Scrum. We seek contributions in the form of position papers with experience reports, empirical studies, reviews of relevant literature, and papers arguing for research needs or describing planned research.
We ask for contributions in the form of 4-page short-papers, which will be peer-reviewed by program committee members for acceptance or rejection. Extended and revised short-papers can be included in the post-conference proceedings published by ACM.
March 3, 2018: Submission deadline
April 6, 2018: Notification of acceptance/rejection
May 21, 2018: Workshop at XP2018
At least one author of each accepted paper must participate in the workshop and give a presentation based on the paper.
Papers are submitted as a PDF through EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=largescaleagile2018 .
All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. The authors of the accepted papers are expected to revise their paper based on the comments from the peer review for post-conference proceedings published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. Papers must present original material.
