For the past thirty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been a

primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers,

software engineers, and application developers from around the world. MiDOS is

the first edition focusing on Microservices, DevOps, and Service-Oriented

Architecture and it is the natural continuation of the previous Service-Oriented

Architecture and Programming (SOAP) track, now discontinued.


Service-oriented architectures have changed our vision of the Web, bringing a

paradigmatic shift in the methodologies when designing and implementing

distributed systems. Originally, the Web was mainly seen as a means of

presenting information to a wide spectrum of people, but service-oriented

programming triggered a radical transformation of the Web towards a

computational fabric where loosely coupled services interact, can be discovered

and then invoked. More recently, the microservices architectural style has been

proposed, where applications are developed as a collection of fine-grained

services running as independent processes. Distributed applications can then be

constructed from independently deployable services taking advantage of the

properties of the microservice architecture (e.g., flexibility, maintainability,

reusability, compositionality, and scalability) as well as the elasticity of

cloud infrastructure. From the practical point of view, the deployment and

maintenance of (micro)services architectures is performed using DevOps, i.e., a

collection of practices linking software development (Dev) with software

operations (Ops). DevOps strongly advocates for automation and monitoring at all

steps of software construction, from integration, testing, releasing to

deployment and infrastructure management. By using the DevOps methodology, it is

possible to reduce the time between committing a change to a system and the

change being placed into normal production, while ensuring high quality.

The complex scenario of (Micro)Services and DevOps needs to be clarified on many

aspects, both from the engineering and from the foundational points of view.

Our track aims to bring together researchers and practitioners having the common

objective of transforming Service-Oriented, DevOps, and Microservice practices

into a mature discipline with both solid scientific foundations and mature

software engineering development methodologies supported by dedicated tools. In

particular, we will encourage works and discussions about what (Micro)Services

and DevOps still need in order to achieve their goal.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers. Submission of the

same paper to multiple tracks is not allowed. Peer groups with expertise in the

track focus area will double-blindly review submissions. Accepted papers will be

published in the annual conference proceedings.

Submission guidelines can be found on the SAC 2019 website:


Prospective papers should be submitted to the track using the provided automated

submission system. Please pay attention to ensure anonymity of your submitted

manuscript as detailed in the submission page so to allow for double-blind

review. Papers not satisfying this constraint will be automatically rejected.

The maximum length for papers is 10 pages. Accepted papers whose camera-ready

version will exceed 8 pages will have to pay an extra charge.

For each accepted paper, a registration is required, allowing the inclusion of

the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending

SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be

included in the ACM digital library. No-show of registered papers and posters

will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.


SIGAPP student members can apply for financial support to present their accepted

work at SAC via the SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program



We plan a special issue of a top-level journal for which we will invite the best
