From 1st to 4th of June, the 11th international conference on Agile Software Development (XP2010) took place in Trondheim. This year 421 participants from 29 countries attended - a new record for this conference. XP2010 brought together software and information systems professionals, both researchers and practitioners.
According to General Chair, Hakan Erdogmus, it was the best conference on Agile Software Development so far. The conference had 150 presentations and 47 workshops / tutorials - selected among the 320 submissions for the conference.
On top of that, more than 100 people attended co-located events like; Seminars about project leadership in agile software development, Dataforeningen's meeting, the XP Agile Meetup Trondheim, the open project meeting for the research project EXTRA, and a mini conference before the start of the main conference.
Electronic art was the new flavor of the conference this year. Øyvind Brandtsegg held two small concerts with improvised music from software he had developed, ImproSculpt. Professor Letizia Jaccheri from our department served as the Electronic Art Chair.
Adjunct Associate Professor Torgeir Dingsøyr served both as one of the Organizing Chairs, and as one of the chairs for the conference textbook. Informatics master student Mats Angermo Ringstad served as one of the two International Student Volunteer Chairs.
