CCIW 2020
Sat 24 Oct 2020 Porto, Portugal
co-located with ICST 2020

Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are increasingly widespread throughout the technology sector. As large engineering organizations adopt CI/CD they are often met with scalability challenges. What works for small teams has not proven to work for large teams. This workshop invites practitioners and academics to come together and informally discuss the challenges and opportunities in build, test, and release automation.

The purpose of the CI/CD Industry Workshop is to encourage practitioners (who may or may not be engaged with the academic community) to come together to learn from each other. It is also an opportunity for the academic community to learn (informally) about the state-of-practice in CI/CD and current challenges. We do not want any artificial barriers to exist between the experienced practitioner and participation in the workshop.

Selection Process

A small Program Committee (PC) will be assembled to review the submitted abstracts. The review process will be a single blind process as we expect that abstracts may reveal the presenter’s corporation, industry, or organization. Each abstract will be reviewed by 3 PC members and rated. The chairs of the PC will then make a final determination on the program for the workshop. The submitters of the rejected abstracts will be strongly encouraged to attend the workshop. All abstracts will receive written feedback and an overall rating along with the committee’s decision.

Given the brevity of the abstracts, the PC may feel it needs more details during the selection process. If so, a PC Chair will contact the author asking for clarifications or elaborations and provide those back to the reviewers.
