Microservices 2020 : 3rd International Conference on Microservices

Bologna, Italy
Event Date: Sep 08, 2020 - Sep 10, 2020
Submission Deadline: May 15, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: Jun 26, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due : Aug 07, 2020


The International Conference on Microservices is a forum for the discussion of all aspects of microservices: their design, programming, and operations. The 2020 edition of the conference (Microservices 2020) will take place in Bologna, Italy. Dates and venue will be announced shortly.

The conference’s overarching aim is to bring together industry and academia, to foster discussion on practice and research of microservices.

Microservices 2020 is part of a conference series started with Microservices 2017 which successfully brought together many international practitioners and researches interested in the software paradigm of microservices. During Microservices 2017 the Microservices Community was founded with the aims of sharing of knowledge, fostering of collaborations, and organising events around microservices. Like Microservices 2019, this edition will be co-located and intertwined with the first international edition of the Meeting on Microservices (the first national edition took place in Bologna, Italy), an event specifically oriented towards companies where invited speakers from industry report success stories, best practices, current challenges, and attendees participate to discussion panels on the adoption and evolution of microservices in production.

Call For Paper

The theme of this edition is the interplay between microservices and the cyber security.

  • On the one hand, the adoption of microservices is fostering the adoption of new architectural patterns and software construction practices; understanding the security properties (or the emerging vulnerabilities) of the resulting constructs calls for the development of a fresh mindset in analysts, designers and testers alike. In addition, the additional middleware and infrastructure typically proposed for the management of microservice-based architectures could expand the attack surface of the systems.
  • On the other hand, the same frameworks could instead prove valuable allies to collect security-relevant information and to coordinate defenses. The above considerations concern the intrinsic interplay between the fields of microservices and security. The broader application context is peculiarly sensitive to them: microservices are often adopted as an accelerator of digital transformations as the successful past edition(s) of the conference have shown. In this light, security issues should be a primary concern for microservices researchers and practitioners, as they provide an opportunity to integrate security-by-design into the recent advances in software development - triggered and amplified by microservices principles, patterns, and technologies.

Topics of interest are not limited to our cyber security theme. We are interested in all aspects and phases of the design and implementation of microservice architectures:

  • Software engineering methods for microservices, specifically (but not limited to) agile service design practices, behavior- and domain-driven design
  • Identification, specification, and realization of candidate services
  • Patterns for IDEAL cloud-native application architectures; service API design and management
  • Microservices infrastructure components: API gateways, side cars, and service meshes; reactive messaging brokers; service registries; service containers and cluster managers; infrastructure as code
  • Function-as-a-service and serverless cloud offerings; service-based event sourcing and data streaming architectures
  • Security and other service quality concerns (consistency, availability, recoverability) in microservices; dealing with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance and other data privacy requirements
  • Testing for microservices: unit tests, system tests, acceptance and regression tests, test-driven service development
  • Formal models for microservices
  • Verification (both static and runtime) of microservice systems
  • DevOps for microservices, in particular (but not limited to) continuous deployment and distributed monitoring
  • Microservice management: fault, configuration, accounting, performance, security
  • Discovery/recovery and reverse engineering of microservices solutions
  • Microservice evolution
  • Programming languages, notations, and techniques for microservices
  • Empirical studies of microservices adoption

We solicit contributed talks based work in progress, scientific work published or submitted for publication, or practical experience reports. Authors wishing to present their work are invited to submit extended abstracts following the submission guidelines.. Abstracts and presentations must be in English.
