Tutorial enquiries and submissions should be sent to XP2008Tutorials@lero.ie.
Submission of WORKSHOP Proposals (closed)
Workshops can be either half day or full day covering an important (possibly emerging) aspect of agile software development. We are looking for workshops on thought provoking, important, and underexplored areas of agile software development practice and research, in line with the overall aims and objectives of XP 2008. Workshop proposals should include:

Workshop enquiries and submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission of PANEL Proposals (closed)
All panel submissions should focus on informing or challenging the agile community in some way. All submissions should talk about how your panel will engage the audience, possibly including some form of audience participation during the panel. Panels are typically 90 minutes in length, but we are open to any and all ideas. Panel proposals should include:
a) Short summary of the panel topic
b) Short statement of how this panel will engage the audience and contribute to the conference
c) List of the panelists
d) CV of the panel organizer(s) and moderator(s)
Submission of POSTERS AND DEMONSTRATIONS (closed)
Posters are an excellent forum for authors to present their work in an informal and interactive session, to present late-breaking and preliminary results, or to present an overview of, or introduction to, interesting work in key areas of agile software development. Posters provide authors with a unique opportunity to make their work highly visible during the conference, and to discuss their work one-on-one with other conference participants. The poster session will have a strong tie to the other areas of XP2008. Poster submissions should include:
a) 2-page extended abstract of the poster or demonstration (to be included in the proceedings)
b) The actual poster to be displayed at the conference.
