## Aims and Scope

The systems we build are ultimately evaluated based on the value they deliver to
their users and stakeholders. To increase value,these systems are subject to
fast-paced evolution due to market unpredictability, complex and
changing customer requirements, shorter time-to-market pressure, 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 rapid parallel cycles, typically hours, days or very
small numbers of weeks. This includes determining new functionality to build,
evolving and refactoring the architecture, developing the functionality,
validating and releasing to customers, and collecting experimental
feedback from the customers to inform the next cycle of development.

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 lightweight 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 areas from
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.

RCoSE 2020 is co-located with ICSE 2020, the International Conference on
Software Engineering, in Seoul, South Korea. RCoSE will be a highly
interactive workshop with a strong emphasis on discussions.

## Topics of Interest

Topics relevant in the scope of the workshop include rapid continuous software
engineering as described above and specifically the following, incomplete list:

* Continuous integration/deployment/delivery
* Agile practices and relations to software engineering phases or feedback from
* 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

## Submissions

We are soliciting full research papers (up to 7 pages), position papers (up to
4 pages) and industrial abstracts (1 page). Full research papers present
original and evaluated research whereas position papers describe novel ideas,
identified challenges, or experiences related to the workshop's theme.

The paper has to follow the NEW ACM formatting guidelines:
Please note, that this workshop does NOT use a double blind review process.

You can submit your abstract and paper using using the EasyChair page for the
