  • Complexity and Systems Thinking – A variety of topics that bring a completely different perspective into the world of business and management. Cutting edge ideas that the community is starting to apply to daily work
  • Beyond Budgeting – A novel approach to company management and strategy. Because the world changes constantly, companies, not just projects, must adapt to the new conditions
  • Transforming Organizations – Agile and Lean adoption leads to changes in our organizations. How to support the needed organization transformation? What is the state of the art when it comes to supporting and encouraging transformation?

The deadline for session submission is August 15th. We expect to get the feedback on the session to all submitters by September 1st.

Call for papers is now closed!

Themes for sessions that fit any of these tracks are welcome, but we are constantly looking for new ideas to promote and review in the community. Novelty and applicability are important factors in the choice of sessions for the conference. LESS is a conference at the intersection of different ideas and trends.

We encourage a range of submissions including research papers, experience reports, workshops, tutorials, doctoral consortium, panels, posters and demonstrations.  This is a conference at the cross roads of different active communities in the world of business and software.
