Call for book chapter proposals - Integrating User Centred Design in Agile Development


Editors

Peggy Gregory, University of Central Lancashire, UK

Åsa Cajander, Uppsala University, Sweden

Gilbert Cockton, Northumbria University,UK

Marta Kristin Larusdottir, Reykjavik University, Iceland


The integration of the User Centred Design (UCD) and Agile systems development processes (Agile) is not without problems. The context of Agile strongly affects the possibilities for IT professionals to conduct user centred activities in their work.


A workshop was held at NordiCHI 2014 (https://ucdandagile.wordpress.com), with the overall objective to provide a venue for researchers and practitioners, from within and outside of HCI, to begin the process of shaping the future of Agile and UCD research. The workshop had two goals: (1) Identifying future trends for research on Agile and UCD (2) Identifying challenges and success stories when working with UCD and Agile. The workshop attracted valuable contributions, so as a follow up, the workshop organisers will edit a HCI series book by Springer with the title: Integrating User Centred Design in Agile Development. Some chapters will be based on accepted position papers for the workshop, and others on analyses developed during the workshop. However, to widen the book's coverage, the editors are also making an open call for further chapter proposals.


We invite chapter proposals on: challenges and success stories of integrating UCD and Agile in practice; values and perspectives underpinning UCD and Agile in theory; theories and methods relevant for doing research on Agile and UCD; and also discuss future research trends. If you are interested in contributing to the book, please:


1.     Write a 2 - 4 page book chapter proposal and email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by 15th of June.

2.     You will get an answer about your proposal by 1st of July.

3.     If accepted you will write a book chapter with the deadline of 15th of August. The format of the book chapters will be the Springer formatting template.


The book chapter proposal should include:

1.     Book chapter title,

2.     Description of the topic,

3.     Description of the main structure of the chapter and the content in each section,

4.     Names and affiliation of the authors.


Please note that Springer states that the work described in the book chapters "has not heretofore been published in whole or in part".


If you have any questions, please contact [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
