Call For Papers

Sixth International Workshop on Serverless Computing (WoSC6) 2020

Part of [1]ACM/IFIP International Middleware Conference, Dec 7-11,
2020.

The workshop will take place in TU Delft, Netherlands.

Over the last four to five years, Serverless Computing (Serverless) has
gained an enthusiastic following in industry as a compelling paradigm
for the deployment of cloud applications, and is enabled by the recent
shift of enterprise application architectures to containers and
microservices. Many of the major cloud vendors have released serverless
platforms, including Amazon Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, Microsoft
Azure Functions, IBM Cloud Functions. Open source projects are gaining
popularity in providing serverless computing as a service. In
particular Kubernetes gained in popularity in enterprise and in
academia. Several open source projects such as OpenFaaS and Knative aim
to provide developers with serverless experience on top of Kubernetes
by hiding low-level details of Kubernetes and add new capabilities such
as supporting event-driven serverless cloud-native applications. This
workshop brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss their
experiences and thoughts on future directions of serverless research.

Serverless architectures offer different tradeoffs in terms of control,
cost, and flexibility compared to distributed applications built on an
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) substrate. For example, a serverless
architecture requires developers to more carefully consider the
resources used by their code (time to execute, memory used, etc.) when
modularizing their applications. This is in contrast to concerns around
latency, scalability, and elasticity, which is where significant
development effort has traditionally been spent when building cloud
services. In addition, tools and techniques to monitor and debug
applications aren't applicable in serverless architectures, and new
approaches are needed. As well, test and development pipelines may need
to be adapted. Another decision that developers face is the
appropriateness of the serverless ecosystem to their application
requirements. A rich ecosystem of services built into the platform is
typically easier to compose and would offer better performance.
However, composing external services may be unavoidable, and in such
cases, many of the benefits of serverless disappear, including
performance and availability guarantees. This presents an important
research challenge, and it is not clear how existing results and best
practices, such as workflow composition research, can be applied to
composition in a serverless environment.
Authors are invited to submit research papers, experience papers,
demonstrations, or position papers.

Topics

This workshop solicits papers from both academia and industry on the
state of practice and state of the art in serverless computing. Topics
of interest include but are not limited to:
* Infrastructure and network optimizations for serverless
applications
* Debugging serverless applications
* Programming models
* Use cases, experiences
* Benchmarks
* Cost models, pricing models, and economics of serverless
* DevOps
* Other topics related to serverless computing

Important Dates

Paper Submission: September 28, 2020 (extended)
Notification of Acceptance: October 5, 2019
Final Camera-Ready Manuscript (Hard Deadline): October 10, 2019
Author registration deadline: TBD
Conference: December 7-11, 2020

Papers and Submissions

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished
research/application papers that are not being considered in another
forum.

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may
not exceed six (6) single-spaced double-column pages using ACM SIGPLAN
style, which can found on the ACM template page. The page limit
contains all the content, including bibliography, appendix, etc.

Submitted papers must adhere to the formatting instructions of the ACM
SIGPLAN style, which can found on the [3]ACM template page. The font
size has to be set to 10pt.

Note that submissions must be double-blind: authors’ names must not
appear, and authors must make a good faith attempt to anonymize their
submissions.

The Middleware conference organizers will provide companion proceedings
including all workshop papers, which will be available in the ACM
Digital Library. This is subject to the availability of their
camera-ready papers by October 16, 2020.

Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format. All manuscripts
will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality,
technical strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.
Papers conforming to the above guidelines can be submitted through the
paper submission system powered by HotCRP
([4]https://wosc6.hotcrp.com/).

All submitted manuscripts (following MIDDLEWARE conference requirements
on formatting and page limits) will be peer-reviewed by at least 3
program committee members. Accepted papers with confirmed presentation
will appear in the conference proceedings as well as in the ACM Digital
Library.
