Submission Guidelines

Draft Papers

The workshop follows a double blind review process. Please make sure that submitted papers are anonymized, i.e., contain no author names or obvious self-references.

Papers can be up to 8 pages long in the IEEE conference template. If you need more space, save it for the journal version!

Paper submission is done through the EasyChair system.

Ignite talks

We will reserve time for a number of 5-minute ignite talks (a variant of PechaKucha) as part of the workshop – please send your proposal to sos-agile(at) An ignite talk is perfect for industrial experience reports!

NEW: Industry experience talks
