RCoSE 2020 : 6th International Workshop on Rapid Continuous Software Engineering

Seoul, South Korea
Event Date: May 26, 2020 - May 26, 2020
Submission Deadline: Feb 05, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: Feb 28, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due : Mar 16, 2020


Systems we build are ultimately evaluated based on the value they deliver to their users and stakeholders. To increase the value, systems are subject to fast-paced evolution of the systems, due to unpredictable markets, complex and changing customer requirements, pressures of shorter time-to-market, and rapidly advancing information technologies.

To address this situation, agile practices advocate flexibility, efficiency and speed. Rapid continuous software engineering refers to the organizational capability to develop, release and learn from software in rapid parallel cycles, typically hours, days or very small numbers of weeks. This includes to determine new functionality to build, evolving and refactoring the architecture, developing the functionality, validating it, and releasing it to customers, and collecting experimental feedback from the customers to inform the next cycle of development. One needs to relate the changes performed on the system with their effect on the metrics of interest, keep the changes with positive effects, and discard the rest. This requires not only agile processes in teams but in the complete research and development organization. Additionally, the technology used in the different development phases, like requirements engineering and system integration, must support the quick development cycles.

The capability to perform all these activities in days or a few weeks requires significant changes in the entire software engineering approach, including parallelising activities, empowering cross functional teams to allow for rapid decision making and light weight coordination across teams. It also requires significant technical advances in the engineering infrastructure, including continuous integration and deployment, collection of post-deployment product usage data, support for running automatic live experiments to evaluate different system alternatives, e.g., A/B testing.

Reaching this goal requires crosscutting research which spans from the area of process and organisational aspects in software engineering to technical aspects in the individual phases of the software engineering lifecycle. Rapidly developing and evolving software systems is important in control-flow oriented as well as data-centric systems, from internet services to cyber-physical systems, and many more. Still, the processes and technology need to respect the differences between these types of systems.

Call For Paper

The following list of topics is an incomplete set of topics of interests for the workshops.

  • Continuous integration/deployment/delivery
  • Agile practices and relations to software engineering phases or feedback from production
  • Relations between agile practices and the specific development phases, e.g., requirements engineering, architectural design, programming languages, validation and verification
  • Organizational aspects of agile processes
  • Tools supporting continuous software engineering
  • Application / system monitoring
  • Live and automatic experimentation and quick feedback of experimental results
  • DevOps practices and cloud-native applications for automated experimentation
  • Usability / human computer interaction
  • Rapid software evolution and maintenance
  • Platforms and abstractions for runtime feedback

Submission and Important Dates

The workshop invites three types of submissions:

  • Full research papers, presenting original and evaluated research. Maximum length: 7 pages incl. references.
  • Position papers, presenting promising initial results from work-in-progress approaches or research challenges, experiences or roadmaps related to the theme of the workshop. Maximum length: 4 pages incl. references.
  • Industrial abstracts describe state-of-the-practice and challenges from practice. Maximum length: 1 pages incl. references.

Submitted papers must conform to the ACM formatting instructions. Please submit your paper using EasyChair.

Your submission will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the PC and judged based on their relevance to the workshop scope, quality and originality of their results. Please note, that this workshop does NOT use a double blind review process. Accepted papers will be published in the ICSE 2020 Companion Volume, published by ACM.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission: February 05, 2020 (extended!)
  • Acceptance notification: February 28, 2020
  • Camera-ready: March 16, 2020
  • Workshop: Tuesday, May 26, 2020
