      The Role of Extreme Programming and Agile Methods as Mainstream Software
      Development Techniques


      mainĀ·stream: (P) Pronunciation Key (mnstrm) n. The prevailing current
      of thought, influence, or activity.

      What does it mean for Extreme Programming and other Agile Methods to be
      mainstream software development techniques? What does it take to move them
      to a level of acceptance that well transcends the current contexts.
      Following the success of the previous three conferences, XP/Agile Universe
      2004 will continue to transform the prevalent thinking in the software
      development community, targeting both advocates and skeptics, through
      learning, experiencing, and sharing. To that end, we are soliciting
      proposals and papers in several categories. Topics of interest include, but
