      XP Agile Universe 2003 Call for Workshop Proposals
      New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
      August 10-13, 2003

      [Apologies for multiple copies of this announcement]

      Workshops provide a forum for small groups to engage in rich
      intellectual discussions about a topic of common interest. They aim
      to advance the state of agile software development methods and/or
      provide insight into future research directions. Workshops also
      provide a valuable opportunity for representatives of a technical
      community to coordinate efforts and to establish collective plans of

      We welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the Agile Community.
      We also encourage proposals involving research or applied topics in
      neighboring areas.

      To foster dialog, the workshops will be kept small, with upto 20
      invited participants (exceptions can be made). To ensure a
      sufficiently small group for effective interaction and discussion,
      workshop organizers manage attendance based on a review of short
      position papers from potential attendees. The position papers need to
      be published on the Web prior to the workshop by the workshop

      Workshops are typically a half-day (3 hours) in length. In
      exceptional cases, full day (6-hour) workshops will also be accepted.
      We particularly encourage proposals for novel, highly-interactive
      workshops. Each workshop must have at least two organizers,
      preferably from different organizations.

      If you want to organize a workshop, submit a proposal via e-mail to
      the Workshop Chair Grigori Melnik (grigori.melnik@...) by
      February 28, 2003. We will accept PDF, XHTML and MS Word files.
      Workshop proposals should include:
      - a workshop title and a half-page description (to be included in the
      Conference Program);
      - the name of the workshop primary contact;
      - an outline of the theme and goals of the workshop (please identify
      specific issues on which workshop will focus, as opposed to proposing
      broad discussion of a particular field of research. Discuss why the
      topic is of interest at this time);
      - a description of the proposed workshop format and proposed length
      (half-day or full-day);
      - a short description of the participant solicitation and selection
      process (usually, the selection process is based on peer review);
      - a brief description of each organizer's background with contact

      Each proposal will be reviewed by the program committee representing
      a cross-section of practitioners and researchers (for the list of
      members, consult the main conference site). Acceptance will be based
      on the evaluation of the workshop potential to advance the state of
      agile methods, the expected level of interest in the topic, and the
      organizers' ability to lead a successful workshop.

      Workshop organizers will be responsible for:
      - submitting a workshop proposal;
      - developing a Call for Position Papers for the workshop;
      - setting up and maintaining a workshop Web site;
      - inviting, selecting and confirming workshop participants;
      - announcing the workshop in relevant newsgroups, distributing the
      Call for Position Papers to electronic mailing lists, and ensuring
      the workshop publicity;
      - soliciting position papers from their colleagues;
      - managing position papers review process and notifying authors;
      - distributing position papers and other pre-workshop materials to
      participants in advance of the workshop;
      - assembling camera-ready electronic version of one-page summary of
      the workshop for the conference proceedings;
      - facilitating the workshop.
