Call For Papers

Call for Papers
1st International Conference on Microservices
Odense, Denmark, October 23-27 (TBD, in Week 43), 2017

Microservices 2017 is a joint forum for scientists and practitioners in the
area of microservices. In microservices, software components are services that
can be independently deployed and scaled. This brings all the benefits, but
also all the issues, of distributed computing to the *internals* of
applications. The resulting increase in complexity calls for a proportional
improvement of techniques for software construction. This requires
contributions from different areas, ranging from formal methods to software
engineering and the general art of programming.

The event will place particular emphasis on the identification of the
challenges that the community of microservices will face in the future,
promising directions, and open discussions (panels) with experts from academia
and industry.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Design and implementation of microservice architectures.
- Empirical studies of microservices.
- Software engineering methods for microservices.
- Security in microservices.
- Formal models for microservices.
- Verification (both static and runtime) of microservice systems.
- Programming languages and techniques for microservices.
- Testing for microservices.

See for full details.

## Preparation of submissions

We solicit contributions in the form of extended abstracts with a maximum
length of two pages. A submission should describe a talk to be given at the
event. Talks can be based on work in progress, scientific work published or
submitted for publication, or practical experience reports. Practical
demonstrations of tools are also welcome. Accepted publications will be
collected in an informal book of abstracts, which will be distributed at the

Microservices 2017 will employ a lightweight reviewing process.

**Deadline**: The deadline for submissions is September 1st, 2017, Anywhere on
Earth. Submissions will be accepted from August 15th, 2017. Resubmissions are
allowed until the submission deadline. Contributions are to be submitted
through EasyChair using the following link:

**Formatting**: Submissions must be in PDF format, printable in black and
white on A4 paper, and interpretable by common PDF tools. All submissions must
be prepared using the Easychair template, available for LaTeX
( and MS Word

**Post-proceedings**: Depending on the success of this initiative, we are
considering the publication of a volume of post-proceedings, for which there
will be a separate call for papers. In this way, the interested authors will
have a chance to enrich their contributions according to the feedback they
received during the event. The tentative deadline for submitting papers for
the post-proceedings is mid-January 2018.
