RWASE '07 Workshop: August 13, 2007
The agile approach to software engineering has changed the way we conceive of software engineering
and the different roles, activities, methods and tools that are involved in the process. In the last
decade, agile development processes have become more widespread and agility in different forms
becomes mainstream. In light of this, researchers and practitioners in the field of agile software
engineering are invited to shape and lead the research roadmap that is of significant to the
RWASE is a one-day workshop that is focused on the research of the agile perspective of software
engineering. It aims at establishing a forum for researchers to share ideas, collaborate, network
and shape the state-of-the-art in this field. RWASE includes position paper presentations, guided
work groups, and open discussions.
RWASE encourages researchers to submit quality position papers to share on-going work and
contemporary research issues. The scope is not limited as long as it relates to the subject of agile
software engineering. The submission must conform to the Agile 2007 proceedings publication format
and should not exceed 3 pages.
RWASE submissions will be peer-reviewed and the accepted position papers will be distributed to the
attendees. The co-chairs intend to publish a report containing the results of the workshop in, e.g.,
Software Engineering Notes, as well as on the workshop web page.
Agile 2007 is offering a small amount of travel grants to academics and students.
