The XP 2018 Conference (19th International Conference on Agile Software Development) will be held the week of May 21st to 25th in Porto, Portugal.

XP is the premier agile software development conference combining research and practice. It is a unique forum where agile researchers, practitioners, thought leaders, coaches, and trainers get together to present and discuss their most recent innovations, research results, experiences, concerns, challenges, and trends.

Whether you are new to agile or a seasoned agile practitioner, XP 2018 will provide a playful and informal environment to learn and trigger discussions around its main theme — make, inspect, adapt.

XP 2018 will offer an open-closed program on the main conference days (Tue, Wed, Thu), with three days of research and practice sessions, keynotes, experience reports, panels, tool demonstrations, lightning talks, as well as a lot of free space for informal and lively Open Space sessions, Makerspace challenges, and Guru Space challenges.

In addition, XP 2018 will have two days (Mon, Fri) of tutorials and workshops (research and practice), a Doctoral Symposium, an Agile in Education and Training event, and co-located agile events.

It will be an intensive agile week!
