Call for paper

Greetings to everyone,

Here we go again! Banking on the success of the first two “XP Day – Edition Suisse”, the organizing committee has decided to go back to work and launch a call for submission for the 2011 edition.

The fundamental rules have not changed: if you want to share your experience or knowledge about agility, to debate on some new idea, or to being forth anything that can contribute to agility, we need your contribution.

Edition 2011 of the XP Day Edition Suisse is your opportunity to express yourself on the following, various subjects:

- Project management,

- Tools,

- Practices,

- Customer contracts,

- Transitions toward agile methodologies,

And more!...

Like we did last year, we want to privilege workshops and interactive sessions over other types of presentations. For this new edition, an open-space room will be booked to organize impromptu discussions or hand-on workshops,

Geneva being an international place, speakers are welcome.

The conference will take place on Monday, May 9th, 20110.

The conference shall be organized in parallel session tracks (up to 3, if you respond to this call!), each track taking place in a room for 50 participants. All sessions will last 1 hour and a strict synchronization of the sessions between each track will ensure that participants can chose at any time their favorite presentation. Each speaker will have a 1 minute time slot during a plenary session to entice participants to attend his/her presentation.

Proposals for a presentation can be made by filling the submission form to be found at formulaire_xpday_switzerland_11.rtf and by sending the filling form to the organizing committee at contribution11@agile-swiss.org .

Submissions must be received before or on March 27th, 2011 at the latest.

To preserve the interactive structure of the conference, sessions are limited to 1 hour, although one can envision a 2 hour workshop or hands-on session. Creativity and interactivity will be the top selection criteria.

Speakers of selected presentations will have a free registration to the conference. Travel expenses, however, are not reimbursed. A special speaker room with Internet access will be available.

The selection committee shall communicate the selected presentations and final program by April 1st, 2011.

XP Day 2010 - Edition Suisse is supported by the association Agile Suisse.
