      Extended deadline: 25.1.2013

      The 14th International Conference on Agile Software Development is a
      leading conference on agile methods in software and information systems
      development. XP2013 will be located in Vienna, Austria June 3-7. This
      conference brings together industrial practitioners and researchers in
      the fields of information systems and software development, and examines
      latest theory, practical applications, and implications of agile
      methods. For more information visit

      We allow submission as research papers as well as experience reports.

      Research papers
      We are looking for original research, with implications for theory and
      practice. Motivation for research and discussion of the related work
      must be included, as well as a description of the research method
      applied. Full papers are limited to 15 pages and short papers to 8 pages.

      Experience reports
      We are looking for experience reports sharing experiences about the
      business impact generated when introducing agile practices, and
      challenges to be overcome as well as horror stories on failures
      including lessons learned. Experience papers must be clearly marked as
      such so that they can be appropriately reviewed by the program
      committee. Concerning length and formatting, experience reports must
      follow the same rules and guidelines as research papers.

      If you would like to receive help from an experienced agile researcher
      to shepherd you in developing a submission, please contact the PC chairs
      (research@...) by the time indicated in the important dates list.

      Areas of interest
      We are inviting innovative and high quality research papers as well as
      experience reports related to agile software development. Topics of
