NordiCHI’14 Workshop: On the Integration of User Centred Design in Agile Development
Monday, October 27th, 2014: Helsinki, Finland

Workshop web site: http://ucdandagile.wordpress.com/




Deadline for submissions (2-6 page position papers in ACM Paper format):
AUGUST 14th, 2014.
******************************
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. In this workshop, we will address: 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. The overall objective of this workshop is 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 has two goals: (1) Identifying future trends for research on Agile and UCD (2) Identifying challenges and success stories when working with UCD and Agile.

Depending on the nature of workshop contributions, findings from the workshop will be presented either as an overview report in an HCI journal, as a special issue in an HCI journal, and/or as an anthology. We also plan to create an e-mail discussion list to continue the discussion and hope to organize a follow-up workshop or SIG at CHI 2016. We aspire to create a community of HCI professionals interested in the integration of UCD and Agile and hope this workshop and subsequent activities will spark a conversation within the community about how to shape the future of UCD and Agile.
