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. 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 http://xp2013.org/call-for-contributions/.

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 at xp2013.org) 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 
particular interest in the conference include, but are not restricted 
to, the following:
