Call for Papers

The DevOps phenomena is getting significant research and industrial attention because of its attributes, i.e., continuous value delivery, faster time to market, frequent accommodation of changes and superior quality. However, quality management plays a significant role between the development and operation silos. For instance, exploring the quality management issues in DevOps becomes an urgent need to software companies who are striving to adopt the DevOps practices. The aim of the 1st international workshop on DevOps quality management is to provide a venue for advances in the state of the art in DevOps quality management approaches, practices, and tools. To this end, the workshop brings together experts from both academia and industry, working in diverse area of quality assurance, testing, performance engineering, agile software engineering, and model-based development, with the goal to identify, define, and disseminate novel quality-aware approaches to DevOps. The workshop is collocated with the 24th International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering.
