First International Workshop on DevOps Testing for Cyber-Physical Systems (DevOps4CPS-Testing)

Much of the increasing complexity of ICT systems is being driven by the more distributed and heterogeneous nature of these systems, with Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) accounting for an increasing portion of Software Ecosystems. Blending best practices DevOps solutions with the development processes used in the CPS to deliver software more rapidly and result in a more secure manner are emerging and critical open challenges of both contemporary and future CPS development. The core part of required solutions needs more advanced test automation and deployment strategies, which work efficiently and in an adaptive manner in different CPS domains, while addressing different CPS technical requirements. However, research in the field is in early stage for what concerns DevOps automation for CPSs, and simply running test cases in DevOps pipelines is still limited. Now testing and deployment automation needs to rise to the next level by going beyond mere test execution of “software systems”, for which Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) activities are not required as with CPS. Moreover, while software engineers, artificial intelligence (AI) engineers and data scientists are actively working on such issues, very few work have been done to address the most emerging challenges involving CPS, which requires the expertise of all these experts.

Call for Papers - Topics of Interest

DevOps4CPS-Testing solicits contributions targeting all aspects of DevOps and test automation to further contribute to software quality in the context of tomorrow’s CPS development and evolution. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • DevOps pipelines in the context of CPSs (including configuration steps)

  • CPSs testing

  • Monitoring techniques for CPSs

  • Cloud-based testing in the context of CPSs

  • Uncertainty testing and detection in CPSs

  • Run-time verification of CPSs

  • Model-based testing

  • Search-based testing

Paper Submission

We invite submission of papers of the following types:

  • Regular papers (8 pages, IEEE format): Full papers presenting research results or industrial practices related to DevOps in any of the areas of testing, debugging, and monitoring of CPS. Work with empirical focus are also welcome, as soon as they provide practical insights on the aforementioned topics.

  • Tool paper (4 pages, IEEE format): Tool papers introduce tools that implement an approach that directly impact the way DevOps and testing is being designed and performed in the context of CPSs. A tool paper submission must include either 1) a URL to a screencast of the tool in action, or 2) a runnable version of the tool for evaluation by the program committee.

  • Position and Experience Papers (2 pages, IEEE format): Short papers introducing challenges, visions, positions or preliminary results within the scope of the workshop. Experience reports and papers on open challenges in the industry are especially welcome.
