Special Issue Call for Papers


This special issue is focused on the integration of Agile and UX, on how to design a good UX in an Agile context with users and stakeholders using a structured process or framework.



The Agile Manifesto does not explicitly mention the user and agile methods are not clear on their role. For example, XP talks about users in passing, and Scrum just makes reference to Human-Computer Interaction at one point. But involving stakeholders throughout development is implicit in the agile principles and engaging users at the right times is entirely appropriate.



Some argue that outdated thinking about what both Agile and UX are holds us back. Some are stuck in 2001 when the term Agile was first conceived, and when UX practices were less mature. These were Agile UX early years. We have learned so much in the last two decades, and we now know how to do it better. This special issue will pull together recent advances in research and practice in order to disseminate what has been learned. Thus, this is what this Special Issue stands for:
