      Waikoloa, Big Island, Hawaii

      HICSS-41 offers a unique, highly interactive and professionally
      challenging environment that attendees find "very helpful -- lots of
      different perspectives and ideas as a result of discussion." HICSS
      sessions are comprised primarily of refereed paper presentations; the
      conference does not host vendor presentations. All papers are peer
      reviewed and accepted papers are published in the IEEE Digital Library.

      Software Technology Minitrack Agile Software Development: Lean,
      Distributed, and Scalable (Jeff Sutherland and Hubert Smits)

      Agile software development processes have been influenced by best
      practices in Japanese industry, particularly by lean product
      development principles implemented at companies like Honda and Toyota,
      and knowledge management strategies developed by Takeuchi and Nonaka,
      now at the Hitotsubashi Business School in Japan, and Peter Senge at
      MIT. This Minitrack will focus on advancing the state of the art or
      presenting innovative ideas related to agile methods, individual
      practices and tools.

      Accepted papers will potentially enrich the body of knowledge and
      influence the framework of thought in the field by investigating Agile
      methods in a rigorous fashion.

      We are open to research papers on multiple aspects of agile methods,
      particularly those that bring best practices in knowledge management
      and lean development to scalable, distributed, and outsourced Scrum,
      eXtreme Programming (XP), and other agile practices. Topics include:

      1. Research on existing or new methodologies and approaches: informal
      modeling techniques and practices, adapting/trimming existing methods,
      and new product/project planning techniques
      2. Research on existing or new techniques or practices: pairing,
      war-rooms, test-first design, paper-based prototyping, early
      acceptance test driven development, exploratory testing, refactoring,
      or others.
      3. Research on special topics or tools: configuration and resource
      management, testing, project steering, user involvement, design for
      agility, virtual teams or others.
      4. Research on integrating ideas from other fields, e.g. interaction
      design, requirements engineering, cognitive science, organizational
      psychology, usability testing, software security, into agile processes.
      5. Research studies of development teams using ethnographic or social
      6. Research on agile software engineering economics.
      7. Quantitative and qualitative studies of agile methods, practices,
      and tools.
      8. Research on agile compliance and cost benefits within CMMI, ISO
      9000, and FDA certified development projects.

      Papers are particularly relevant when agile process implementations
      are shown to produce quantitative and qualitative benefits on
      distributed, outsourced, large, or standards compliant software
      development projects which have been previously been viewed
      (erroneously) as unsuited for agile development.
