About the workshop

The frantic pace of evolution in the IT industry and the staggering growth of the Web, private and public clouds, container architectures and microservices exert ever increasing pressure on modes of software development and deployment, leading to constant questioning of traditional software engineering wisdom.

Among the new development models continuously integrating development, quality assurance, deployment, operation and maintenance, “DevOps” is the most prominent, although not the only one.

The DEVOPS 19 workshop provides a venue for in-depth discussions of software engineering implications of these new models,  which are poised to revolutionize the IT industry but have so far received scant scientific analysis.

The post-proceedings will be published as a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Here are DEVOPS 2018 proceedings.

Participation and submissions

All submissions will be reviewed for conformance to the aims of the workshop, but the actual refereeing process will apply to final contribution submitted after the workshop for publication in the LNCS proceedings.

To submit a contribution, use the EasyChair submission page.
