Submissions to Agile2011 are closed. 

Register NOW while there is still space. 

The Agile2011 conference is presented of the community, by the community, for the community. You have the opportunity to be a speaker at the conference by submitting a topic of interest to the general agile community.  There will be much competition - we expect more than 1000 submissions for roughly 200 presentations.  It is critical that you formulate your proposal carefully and make sure that you have something that catches the attention of the review committees. 

The review committees are distributed by stages.  Each stage has an area of focus.  You will submit your presentation to the stage that you feel most nearly represents your topic.  There will always be overlaps and gaps with the stages.  The program committee and the overall review community do their best to help guide sessions in to the most appropriate stage. 

The review process is multifaceted.  Anybody in the community has the ability to comment on any proposal.  This is particularly useful to help create a dialog tp improve the proposal and in the process improve the chances of it getting accepted into the program.  This is one of the reasons why it is a good idea to submit your proposal early in the process.  There will also be a peer review done by the stage producer and the review team.  The other reason to submit early is that there will be two rounds of acceptances.  All submission entered by January 10th will be reviewed by February 7th and either accepted, rejected, or suggested for modification.  The deadline for the second iteration of submissions is February 14th.  For more information about our deadlines click here.

An individual may submit up to 4 sessions.  This limit is regardless of whether they are the primary or secondary submitter.  Any 10 minute sessions (Agile Show and Tell) do count against the total limit of 4 submissions.  An individual will be able to have no more than 2 submissions accepted into the program, however 10 minute sessions do not count against this limit.  Again, this limit is regardless of whether they are the primary or secondary submitter.
