The evolution of software development methods is driven by the perennial quest on how to organize projects for better productivity and better quality. The traditional software development projects, which followed well-defined plans and detailed documentations, were unable to meet the dynamism, unpredictability and changing conditions that characterize today's competitive business environment. Agile methods overcame these limits by considering that requirements are dynamic, while customers are unable to definitively state their needs up front. Later on, the software industry also started to look at practices from lean manufacturing as a means of further waste elimination by removing all non-value-adding activities.
While agile as well as lean software development has already become mainstream in industry and a strong community has crystallized around the new way of thinking, making the transition to the new mindset is still challenging for many companies. Thereby, the practical implementation of Scrum, Kanban or other method often deviates from the proposed framework. Such misalignment usually hides some dysfunctions which, if removed, would allow the company to take full advantage of the agile method.
Besides, even though agile methods were originally designed for single, small teams, many organizations have increasingly adopted them in large-scale projects with multiple development teams. Scaling agile software development is complex and brings new challenges, including:
The objective of LASD is to extend the state-of-the-art in lean and agile software development and spread best practices and stories of successful transitions. Our conference has become a prominent forum where practitioners, researchers, and academics meet to share and discuss their concerns, experience, and research findings.
We invite research papers in two categories: Full Papers (14-18 pages), and Short Papers (up to 8 pages). Papers must be in English and present original, not already published research. Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers:
Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
Submission is done through the EasyChair Conference System. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. To facilitate the double-blind reviewing, authors are kindly requested to provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors, including the authors' personal details, the acknowledgments section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the authors' identity.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer in their Lecture Notes on Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. LNBIP volumes are made available to the following indexing services: Web of Science; Scopus, EI Engineering Index; ACM Digital Library; DBLP; Google Scholar. The proceedings will be available at: https://link.springer.com/conference/lasd.
An extended version of best papers will be forwarded for further procedure in Computer Science and Information Systems (ComSIS, IF: 0.927).
Corresponding authors of accepted papers are required to upload a pre-recorded video of their paper presentation to YouTube or other video-sharing platform and send the uploaded video link via email to the conference chair. The presentations will be available 2 weeks before the conference. During the conference, the authors must be available online to interact with attendees for questions and answers.
There are a lot of tools available to easily record a presentation. By using these tools, you can show your face via webcam and display your slides as you talk. Please, explore the links below for detailed instructions:
