Submission Information
Manuscripts should generally conform to the EJIS "Instructions for
Authors"
at http://www.palgrave-journals.com/ejis/author_instructions.html
EXCEPT, that these submissions should be submitted by email directly to
the special issue editors at kieran.conboy@nuigalway.ie.

XP2008 Conference Fast-Tracking
In addition to papers submitted directly to the special issue, we expect
to harvest the best papers from The International Conference on Agile
Processes and eXtreme Programming in Software Engineering, XP2008
(www.xp2008.org), to be held in Limerick, Ireland, June 10 -14 2008. The
top papers from this conference (as indicated by the conference
reviewers) will be fast-tracked into this special issue. The fast track
will regard the conference review as the first round of EJIS reviews. As
the XP2008 conference proceedings will be published in the Springer
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer LNCS). Conference papers
will be substantially revised with clearly extended contributions such
that the EJIS papers will be regarded as distinctly different papers
from the conference proceedings.
