      Agile 2011 – Agile for Embedded Systems Development stage
      August 7-13, 2011, Salt Lake City, USA

      The goal for this stage is to provide a forum for practitioners to
      exchange their many lessons learned and a place for those new to Agile,
      but not embedded, to see how to apply Agile to the challenges of
      embedded systems development. Because embedded systems always involve
      more than software, a further goal is to explore:

      * Agility for product development involving hardware, software,
      mechanics, …
      * Making the transition from lean manufacturing to lean development

      Questions this stage will attempt to answer:

      * How will incremental planning and delivery help when there is no
      incremental delivery possible?
      * How do I turn product requirements into stories?
      * How do we deal with regulatory issues? What will my auditors say?
      * What is continuous integration in an embedded product development
      * How do we use TDD and automated acceptance testing without a lab
      full of specialized equipment?
      * Our engineers are specialists, how can we deliver features and
      show progress when the platform is not ready?
      * Can I use agile on a one engineer product?
      * Our product has a lot of third party off-the-shelf software, how
      can agile help?
      * What does Lean Product Development have to do with Lean Mfg?
      * How can we make progress on the software when the hardware won’t
      be ready for months?
      * How do we get meaningful customer feedback before it is too late?

      If your Agile Embedded proposal is accepted and you're new to
      presenting at conferences, we will work with you to help you make your
      session the best it can be.

      Don't wait! February 14 is the deadline for submissions. You do not
      need to have a presentation written by that date; you only need to
      describe your concept to us in the online submissions system.

      Here is what we are looking for:

      Describe the learning outcomes you want attendees to take away.
      Explain how your session actions support that - such as audience
      exercises, a demo you give, breakouts for discussion, etc.
      Tell us how your experience or other qualifications make you well
      suited to present this topic.

      As long as you put your submission in by the deadline, you'll be
      able to get feedback from us, and you'll be able to make revisions to
      your idea for several more weeks.

      All submissions will be strongly considered, since we are trying to
      pull from all of our experiences and expertise that has been gleaned
      from our adventures into making Agile jive with embedded product
      development, and the unique challenges we have all faced. A few gaps we
      would like fill in our content is in the areas of mobile development
      and applying Agile to achieve regulatory compliance endeavors.

      Important dates:

      - Last day to submit proposal: February 14
      - Final notification of acceptance: April 18
      - Final program published to the website: May 2
      - Presentations: week of August 7

      Submission Process:

      Initial proposals will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the Agile
      Embedded review committee. Proposals will be reviewed as they are
      received. On the submissions website you will receive comments from the
      general public - it's your choice whether to act on them. You will also
      receive comments from our reviewers, in a section labeled "Review".
      Reviewers may ask for additional information or for specific revisions,
      and you're expected to respond - you can make replies, and can update
      your submission.
