      The International Conference on Agile Processes in Software Engineering
      and eXtreme Programming, XP2007, is the leading world event on the
      topics of agility in software and system development, now at its eighth
      The agile approach has become mainstream in the software industry in
      recent years. It is able to deliver business value early in the project
      lifetime and to successfully deal with changing requirements. It focuses
      on the delivery of running, tested versions of the system at a constant
      pace, featuring a continuous interaction with customers, and paying
      extreme attention to the human component of software development.
      A rapidly growing scientific and practical evidence show many quality
      gains including increased productivity, less defects and increased
      customer satisfaction.

      Agile innovations are currently moving into new domains, such as the
      embedded development industry, safety-critical products and offshore
      development. Movement towards business agility is also emerging in the
      XP2007 offers a unique forum for executives, managers, software
      professionals and researchers from labs and academia to meet together
      and discuss their needs and ideas for incorporating agile methodologies
      into the production models.

      The conference is not about a single methodology, but rather provides a
      forum for the exchange of information regarding all agile development
      methods, practices and tools. XP 2007 facilitates the exchange of ideas
      in a number of ways, including high-profile keynote speakers on the
      cutting edge of the Agile Processes, technical presentations, special
      activity sessions, panels, posters, code camps, workshops, tutorials,
      and other opportunities to exchange and elaborate the new findings. XP
      2007 also features a PhD Symposium for PhD students.


      The conference brings together both industrial practitioners and
      researchers. The topics will stress practical applications and implications
      of agile methodologies. New openings, domains and insights are highly
      appreciated. The topics of interest in the conference include, but are not
      restricted to, the following:

      - Foundations and rationale for agile methods
      - Case studies, empirical experiments and practitioners' experience reports
      - Organizational change, management and organizational issues
      - Digital ecosystems and agility
      - Commitment, motivation and culture in an Agile SW development organization
      - Agile development in the large scale including the scalability issues
      - Education and training
      - Combining industry quality standards (e.g., CMMI) and Agile approaches
      - Experimenting with agile practices: Pair programming, test-first
      design, continuous integration, refactoring, etc.
      - Agile SW development tools and environments
      - Agile development of Open Source software
      - Agile offshore and distributed development
      - Tailoring and building of agile processes
      - Combining or streamlining the Business processes and Agile SW development
      - Business agility
      - Embedded software (e.g., SW/HW co-design) and Agile SW development
      - Contracting processes and issues, including subcontracting
      - Metrics, automated metrics and analysis

      We call for contributions in the form of research papers, experience
      reports, workshops, panels, PhD-symposium contributions, workshops,
      tutorials, posters and activities.
