    Recfactor our Writings
    ----------------------

    Getting folks writing papers about useful information is
    good. However, a forest of ideas with no organization is bad. We would
    like authors and groups of authors come together to refactor older,
    related papers into new, consolidated pieces of literature that
    communicate comprehensive ideas on an important subject. We need to
    encourage ourselves to refactor what we've written in order to produce
    excellent new pieces of literature. Please contact Vera Peeters at
    for further information.

    Call for Tutorials
    ------------------
    Tutorial Chair: Rachel Davies

    The XP2004 tutorial program provides conference participants the
    opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in topics
    related to extreme Programming and Agile software
    development. Participants may include software developers, managers,
    teachers, researchers, and students.

    Tutorials are an independent instruction on a self-contained topic of
    relevance to XP and Agile software development. Therefore no
    commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted.

    We encourage tutorial proposals that provide clear utility to
    practitioners, especially innovative tutorials, which depart from
    lecture style delivery, and tutorials on highly advanced topics.

    Tutorials are presented in half-day (3-hour) or full-day sessions
    (6-hour), primarily during the first day of the conference.

    Important Dates:

    * Tutorial Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
    * Acceptance notification: February 28, 2004
    * Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

    Submission Guidelines for Tutorials
    -----------------------------------

    A tutorial proposal of up to 2 pages should include:

    * Tutorial title and one line summary
    * Abstract
    * Audience and benefits of attending
    * Content outline and process
    * Presenter resume with contact information
    * History of tutorial
    * Examples of supporting material

    Submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
    submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
    format to .

    Call for Workshops
    ------------------
    Workshop Chair: Vera Peeters

    The XP2004 workshop program provides a forum for groups of
    participants to exchange opinions and to enhance community knowledge
    about research topics and real life applications of Agile Processes.

    Workshops also provide the opportunity for representatives of a
    technical community to coordinate efforts and to establish collective
    plans of action.

    We particularly encourage proposals for novel, highly-interactive
    workshops that fall outside the conventional workshop format. The
    intention is that everybody learns from the experience, the organisers
    as well as the participants.

    To ensure a sufficiently small group for effective interaction,
    workshop organizers manage attendance based on a review of short
    position papers from potential attendees.

    Workshops are typically half-day (3-hour) or full-day sessions
    (6-hour).

    This call for participation is for workshop organizers only: a later
    call will occur for workshop attendees. Each workshop must have at
    least two organizers, preferably from different organizations. The
    organizers will typically manage a workshop Web site and the whole
    workshop participation process.

    Important Dates:

    * Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
    * Acceptance notification February 28, 2004
    * Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

    Submission Guidelines for Workshops
    ------------------------------------

    A workshop proposal of up to 2 pages should include:

    * Workshop title and one line summary (used in advance program)
    * Abstract
    * Audience and benefits of attending
    * 0utline of the theme and goals of the workshop
    * A description of the desired number of participants, the
    participant solicitation and selection process
    * Presenter resume with contact information

    Submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
    submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
    format to .

    Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential
    for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in
    the topic, and the organizers' ability to lead a successful
    workshop.

    Call for Panels and Activities
    ------------------------------
    Panels and Activities Co-Chairs: Steven Fraser and Joshua Kerievsky

    XP2004 panels/activity-sessions will be lively, participatory,
    educational, and entertaining. They offer an interactive opportunity
    to share perspectives, debate opinions, and communicate
    best-practices. Panels are not intended as unison gab-fests of
    mini-presentations - contrasting opinions are important! Panel formats
    have included: traditional; talk show; game show; fish bowl; formal
    debate; and special events. A proposal must include a relevant topic,
    an appealing format and participants with different points of
    view. Part of the enduring appeal of XP2004 panels is to showcase the
    opinions of leading researchers and industry leaders. Panelists need
    not be experts - dispatches from the trenches can prove as
    enlightening as the latest sound bites from the usual suspects. You
    don't have to be an XP200N regular to organize a panel.

    Important Dates:
    * Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
    * Acceptance notification February 28, 2004
    * Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

    Submission Guidelines for Panels and Activities
    -----------------------------------------------

    Panel proposals must include:

    * Title
    * Convener/Moderator contact information with bios
    * Proposed panelists (names, bios, positions)
    * Panel value proposition (value, innovation, timeliness,
    controversy factor, appeal, history)
    * Format description (traditional panel, debate, fish-bowl, talk
    show, game show, special event)
    * Complete panel material 'camera-ready' for publication in the
    proceedings

    Submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
    submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
    format to .

    Call for Posters
    ----------------
    Poster Chair Rachel Reinitz

    The poster session is an informal and highly interactive environment
    that gives XP2004 attendees the opportunity to engage with one another
    in discussions about relevant, ongoing work and critical issues in key
    areas. Posters are ideal for presenting preliminary research results,
    experience reports, late-breaking developments, or for giving an
    introduction to interesting, innovative work Posters provide attendees
    with a unique opportunity to make their work highly visible during the
    conference.

    Submissions are sought in all relevant areas of XP and Agile
    Methodologies. This is a great forum that spans from sharing real-life
    experiences to innovative research. Workshop organizers and/or
    attendees may present posters that summarize results from one or more
    XP200x workshops, thus making the results immediately and widely
    available to the community. Authors of work that is presented in the
    XP2004 technical program can obtain even more benefit by presenting
    their work in a poster as well, since the poster session provides them
    the opportunity to engage in the one-on-one discussions that are not
    possible during technical sessions. PhD candidates are particularly
    encouraged to submit reports describing their ongoing work, in
    addition to attending the PhD symposium.

    The Posters program begins with a special session at the Welcome
    Reception. Poster authors are required to attend this scheduled
    interactive poster session, staying with their poster so that they can
    discuss their work with conference attendees. After the Welcome
    Reception, the posters will be displayed where XP2004 participants can
    view them at their convenience and to enable interactions on the
    topics throughout the conference.

    Important Dates:

    * Submissions Deadline: January 31, 2004
    * Acceptance notification March 15, 2004
    * Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

    Submission Guidelines:
    ----------------------

    A workshop proposal of up to 2 pages should include:

    * Poster title and one line summary
    * A short abstract that summarizes the content of the poster
    * a two-page extended abstract, suitable for inclusion in the XP2004
    Conference Proceedings
    * The poster itself, or a preliminary graphic layout of the
    poster. The preliminary graphic layout should consist of 1 to 3
    pages that sketch the layout for an 8 feet (wide) by 4 feet (high)
    bulletin board. Please use 10 point or larger font in the
    preliminary layout, and 12 point or larger in the final poster, so
    that it is readable.
    * References or supporting material
    * Presenter resume with contact information

    Successful posters are carefully designed to convey technical
    details. They should also have a strong visual impact that attracts
    the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays, either
    during the interactive poster session or at other times during the
    conference. The poster should be self-explanatory, allowing viewers to
    examine the information presented without verbal assistance. The goal
    is to develop a poster that encourages and facilitates small groups of
    individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact.

    The submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
    submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
    format to .

    Call for Contributions to the Second Symposium on Extreme Training and
    Education a Special Forum for trainers and educators in Extreme
    Programming and Agile Processes
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A Special Forum for trainers and educators in Extreme Programming and
    Agile Processes

    Educational Symposium Co-Chairs: Helen Sharp and Mike Holcombe

    This Symposium is for industry and academic professionals who are
    interested in teaching and learning extreme programming and agile
    processes. Professionals from academia and industry are invited to
    discuss their needs and ideas for integrating extreme programming and
    agile processes into training plans and courses. The Symposium aims to
    share experiences in a variety ways. For example invited talks by
    professionals on the leading edge of technology, lively and engaging
    discussions, pre-submitted papers and posters. Most importantly, we
    want to encourage interaction and debate rather than passive listening
    to presentations, and so we'd like to invite you to submit your ideas,
    successes, challenges and insights to make the Symposium yours.

    We'd like to especially encourage submissions that address issues
    concerned with integrating XP and other agile approaches into the
    mainstream curriculum in areas such as quality, requirements capture,
    HCI, user-centred design and the realities of business.

    Important Dates:

    * Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
    * Acceptance notification February 28, 2004
    * Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

    Submission Guidelines:
    ----------------------
    Trainers and educators from all levels of industry and academia are
    invited to send submissions. There will be two types of submission:
    presentation materials such as papers and posters, and active sessions
    such as panels and group work. Questions should be directed to Mike
    Holcombe or Helen Sharp, the Symposium co-chairs at:
    .

    Active sessions

    Submissions in this category will have a summary printed in the
    Symposium notes. Submissions should contain the following information:

    * Overview of the topic to be covered
    * Type of session proposed, e.g. panel discussion, group work,
    goldfish bowl debate, mini workshop, etc.
    * Materials and preparation required (if any)
    * Process for the session (include timings)

    Presentation materials

    Submissions in this category will be published in the Symposium
    proceeding notes. Selection will be based on clarity, originality,
    technical and educational value, and, most important the "synergy
    effect", i.e. the possible significance to other trainers and
    educators. The review committee will focus on ideas that have the most
    value for others at the Symposium. Acceptance of your paper only
    guarantees that it will be published in the Symposium proceeding
    notes. It does not guarantee that the one-day programme will allow
    time to present it. However, all those with accepted papers will have
    the opportunity to participate in some way on the day.

    There are three categories of presentation materials:

    * Experience paper: There is no doubt that all professionals in
    training and education face similar challenges in teaching extreme
    programming and agile processes. Submissions in this group will
    present a challenge encountered in an industry or academic
    environment and a description of an innovative idea that was used
    to meet that challenge. Everyone has something to contribute in
    this category - both negative and positive experiences are most
    welcome! We are favoring topics in the area of expertise in other
    domains (interdisciplinary teaching and learning); facilitation a
    learning organization (educating for change); and active
    learning. If you do not wish to submit a paper, please put your
    idea on a poster.

    * Research paper: Research papers are welcome, which report on
    projects contributing to foster the knowledge in the area of
    extreme programming and agile processes. Please ensure that your
    submission includes how your findings are applicable to teachers
    of extreme programming and agile processes.

    * Poster / Demonstration: Posters and Demonstrations allow to share
    teaching and learning tools and techniques (teaching and learning
    software; effective course material and handouts; various stuff
    like urls references to books and the like). Furthermore the open
    format enables the participants to establish and deepen their
    networks with other professionals in the same area. The posters
    and demonstrations will be set up similar to an exhibition and
    will be open for the whole Extreme Educational Symposium
    day. There will be a specific timeframe alloted for circling
    around, but every break can also be used for gathering
    information. - No official proposal is required, just bring it
    along.

    Please prepare your experience or research paper according to the
    Springer LNCS style. All submissions should be submitted
    electronically in Postscript or PDF format to
    .

    Call for Phd Symposium
    ----------------------
