      (You find the original XP2012 call for papers with submission rules at
      the end of this email.)
      Thank you for all the interesting initial submissions made so far to
      XP2012! (XP2012 is in Malmö, Sweden: May 21-25, 2012) However, we
      would like to get more proposals on some of the more novel aspects of
      XP2012. Like the theme Agile by Design <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=24>
      or The Industry's Interest in Agile <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=73> .
      Or maybe you like to say "Over here!" in reply to: Any Lean
      Startups at XP2012? <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=77> You can get some
      inspiration by the videos on the XP2012 Challenge at
      http://xp2012.org/video <http://xp2012.org/video> and the
      bloghttp://blog.xp2012.org <http://blog.xp2012.org/> . There is also
      an opportunity to do an early registration at http://xp2012.org/register
      <http://xp2012.org/register> Update: Another agile team has joined
      the XP2012 Team Challenge <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=53> : A team that
      builds software for SAAB Gripen jet software will build working software
      in iterations onsite at XP2012 during the conference week. . FYI: You
      find the call for proposals at http://xp2012.org/cfp
      <http://xp2012.org/cfp> and the submission links at
      http://xp2012.org/submit <http://xp2012.org/submit> We have extended
      the initial submission deadline until December 11, 2011. After December
      11 we intend to focus on interactive review to help you refine your
      initial submissions until Jan 3, 2012. We will employ an initial
      review process aimed at helping you improve your proposals which
      combines elements and the spirit of the Patterns Writers Workshop and
      the Perfection Game. (Many thanks to Willem van Ende who shared his
      experiences on review processes at the ALE2011 conference in Berlin)
      After Jan 3, 2012 our focus will be on building a great program for
      XP2012 with a selection of your proposals. That's why we like your
      proposals to include options on how you think you can deliver them. By
      suggesting several formats in your proposals, your chance to get
      accepted greatly improves. Maybe our new take on tech demos and
      technical tutorials inspires you? (Why Rules for Tech Demos
      <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=59> ) 70% of the added value in some
      industries depends on superior software development. Not office packages
      but custom development of industrial control and/or embedded and
      safety-critical systems, thus our interest in proposals onEmbedded and
      Safety-Critical Agile <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=64> . We also would
      like to see more of What's up Your Sleeve
      <http://blog.xp2012.org/?p=75> and we also like to see serious
      craftsmanship in a form likeMature Agility – Thriving on A Riff

      proposals at the end of this email! See you in Malmö Sweden May
