Workshop website

The integration of usability engineering and agile software development 
practices is an emerging challenge.
Both the agile and the HCI community have recognized the need and the 
difficulties to incorporate efficient usability practices in this 
domain. During XP 2010 a first edition of this workshop was held with 
about 25 attendees, who actively participated in an interesting debate 
about the topic and highlighted many open issues.

XP 2011 workshop is aimed to keep on being a forum for discussing 
approximations for the intersection of agility
and usability. Issues to debate can be related, although are not 
limited, to:
- Implications of usability in agile environments
- Alternatives for integrating user experience activities in an agile 
- Approaches for incorporating usability requirements into agile artifacts
- Open issues in the integration of agile and usability


The Workshop is scheduled in two 90 minutes sessions. It will be 
structured around an invited talk by
a representative speaker in the area, the presentation and discussion of 
individual position papers followed
by a final debate about the current practice and open issues in the 
integration of usability and agility.

To present in the workshop, contributors would be required to submit a 
position paper or an experience
report about the topic through easychair 
by March 31, 2011. Those submissions should not exceed 4 pages in length 
in Springer's LNBIP format.
