LASD 2017 - 1st International Conference on Lean and Agile Software Development (LASD'17)

Date2017-09-04 - 2017-09-07


VenuePrague, Czech Republic Czech Republic



Topics/Call fo Papers

The evolution of software development life cycles is driven by the perennial quest on how to organize projects for better productivity and better quality. The traditional software development projects, which followed well-defined plans and detailed documentations, were unable to meet the dynamism, unpredictability and changing conditions that characterize rapidly changing business environment. Agile methods overcame these limits by considering that requirements are not static but dynamic, while customers are unable to definitively state their needs up front. However, the advent of agile methods divided the software engineering community into opposing camps of traditionalists and agilists. After more than a decade of debate and experimental studies a majority consensus has emerged that each method has its strengths as well as limitations, and is appropriate for specific types of projects, while numerous organizations have evolved toward the best balance of agile and plan-driven methods that fits their situation.
In more recent years, the software industry has started to look at lean software development as a new approach that could complement agile methods. Lean development further expands agile software development by adopting practices from lean manufacturing. Lean emphasizes waste elimination by removing all nonvalue-adding activities.
The objective of LASD'17 is to extend the state-of-the-art in lean and agile software development by providing a platform at which industry practitioners and academic researchers can meet and learn from each other. We are interested in high quality submissions from both industry and academia on all topics related to lean and agile software development. These include, but are not limited to:
Combining lean and agile methods for software development
Lean and agile requirements engineering
Scaling agile methods
Distributed agile software development
Challenges of migrating to lean and agile methods
Balancing agility and discipline
Agile development for safety systems
Lean and agility at the enterprise level
Conflicts in agile teams
Lean and agile project management
Collaborative games in software processes
Lean and agile coaching
Managing knowledge for agility and collaboration
Tools and techniques for lean and agile development
Measurement and metrics for agile projects, agile processes, and agile teams
Innovation and creativity in software engineering
Variability across the software life cycle
Industrial experiments, case studies, and experience reports related to all of the above topics
