Call for papers: Quality in Agile Methods

FYI

QUATIC’2010 Thematic Track:
Quality in Agile Methods

(http://www.fe.up.pt/quatic2010/quality_agile_methods)
Call for papers

Agile methods have gained popularity due to their ability to cope with unstable requirements throughout the development life cycle, improving communication between developers and customers, and delivering products in shorter time frames, with more constrained budgets, when compared to traditional development methods. However, the real impact of agility in quality is a controversial topic. Although agility has earned support from many researchers and practitioners, the evidence provided by those supporters to back up their claims has yet to convince agility skeptics. The ICT systems community would benefit from compelling evidence with respect to the contexts in which agility is a good option (and those where a more traditional approach is more advisable), and to the effects of agility in software quality. We seek contributions on the impact of agility in the quality of ICT systems.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

· Evidence, and “reports from the trenches” concerning the Agile Manifesto and its impact on ICT systems quality

· Agile versus Traditional Quality Management

· Evaluation of the Quality Assurance Activities and Practices in the context of agile methods

· Agility in the context of long-lived ICT systems (with developers turnover, …)

· Empirical evaluation on evidence concerning the effect of agility in quality

· Quality metrics for Agile Project Management

· Gaps in Agile Software Quality Assurance activities

· Agile Quality Trends and Agile Quality Improvements
