Agile 2012 Submissions Now Open
Submissions are now open for the Agile 2012 conference to be held in Dallas, Texas from August 13-17, 2012. Session proposals are being welcomed from both previous speakers as well as those new to the conference across fourteen stages on topics that will appeal to beginning, practicing or expert Agilists.
According to conference chair Mitch Lacey:
The Agile 2012 conference is presented by the community, for the community. We invite those who are passionate about providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information to submit a topic of interest to the general Agile community. There will be much competition - we expect more than 1,000 submissions for roughly 200 presentations.
The stages for the conference are:
- Adoption & Transformation
- Collaboration, Culture & Teams
- Enterprise Agile
- Research at Work
- Distributed Agile
- Coaching & Mentoring
- Agile Boot Camp
- Business Value and Working With Stakeholders
- No-Bull Know-How
- Insights (Experience Reports)
- Testing & Quality Assurance
- User Experience
- Development Practices & Craftsmanship

Submissions are open until February 19, 2012, although early submitters can take advantage of an early acceptance round for proposals submitted by January 15, 2012. The Agile 2012 speaker information page has comprehensive details on the submission process along with some good tips for submitters.
InfoQ also has an article written earlier this year by Chris Matts that contains some good advice about the submission and review process and how to improve your chances of acceptance.
