We invite researchers to submit their contributions to the Research Stage. We aim at bridging the gap between research and practice, and encourage submission of case studies, action research studies, grounded theory studies, experiments, surveys and literature reviews.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– Architecture and Design
– Customer Collaboration
– Distributed Teams
– Large-scale Studies of Agile Practice
– Lean Principles and Applications
– Management and Business Issues
– Self-organization and Self-management

– User Experience and Interaction Design
– Agile in the Classrooms

There are two types of submissions invited for the Agile India 2012 conference:

  • Full-paper: We invite researchers to submit original research work that has led to significant and validated results. Full-papers are limited to 10 pages. Authors are required to describe motivation for research, research design/method and results. A discussion of background and related literature is recommended. Authors of accepted full-papers will be invited to give a short presentation at the conference.
  • Short-paper: We invite researchers to submit original research work that explore new ideas and/or have emerging results. Short-papers are limited to 4 pages. Authors of accepted short-papers will be invited to prepare a poster summarizing their work.

Submission and Review

Papers will undergo a rigorous double-blind peer-review process, by 
reviewers selected from the program committee. Both full-papers and short-papers will be published in the electronic proceedings and indexed in IEEE Xplore.
