On Week 34th (19th to 23th August) Jacopo Mauro and Saverio Giallorenzo lectured at the Cyber-security Summer School held at the KEA institute in Copenhagen.

Mauro lectured on DevOps culture and techniques and the recent declination of DevSecOps. Giallorenzo lectured on Microservice security concepts.

The second edition of the International Conference on Microservices (Microservices 2019) just ended. The 3-day event successfully brought together many international practitioners and researches interested in the software paradigm of microservices. It consisted of 5 invited keynotes and 30 contributed talks peer-reviewed by an international committee of experts from both industry and academia. This edition featured the first satellite for the conference series: a hackathon for university students.

On Jannuary 18th, Marco Peressotti presented the paper “Better Late Than Never: A Fully Abstract Semantics for Classical Processes” at 46th ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (https://popl19.sigplan.org/).

Marco Peressotti and Saverio Giallorenzo together with Florian Rademacher and Sabine Sachweh, from the IDiAL Institute in Dortmund, are organising the second edition of the International Conference on Microservices. The conference will take place between the 19th and 21st of February 2019.

On 2 November 2018, Fabrizio Montesi gave an invited seminar at the Driving IT conference, organised by the Danish Society of Engineers. Fabrizio’s talk was on “Jolie, the microservice-oriented programing language”.

On October 26th, Saverio Giallorenzo presented the paper “ChIP” at CoopIS 2018.

On September 13th, Fabrizio Montesi joined a panel of experts at the Robotics Technology Conference on the topic “How do we attract the best brains?”. The panel discussed how to create better conditions for the attraction and the integration of international talents in Denmark.

Edition 2019 of the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (a primary gathering forum for theoretical and applied researchers in computing) will host the first edition of MiDOS: Microservices, DevOps, and Service-Oriented Architecture (MiDOS). The track, chaired by Luís Cruz-Filipe, Elisabetta Di Nitto, and Jacopo Mauro, is the natural continuation of the previous Service-Oriented Architecture and Programming (SOAP) track.

Jacopo Mauro, together with Roberto Amadini and Maurizio Gabbrielli, won the Silver medal at the 2018 MiniZinc Challenge, an international annual competition of constraint programming solvers on a variety of benchmarks.

On August 7th, Luís Cruz-Filipe attended the prestigious International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM), joining a panel of world experts on the topic “The strengths and flaws of machine-assisted proofs”, on how computers can assist us in proving mathematical results/theorems.

On June 28th, we had a kickoff collaboration meeting with members of the Software Engineering section of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Southern Denmark: Kati Kuusinen, Sanja Lazarova-Molnar, and Elena Markoska. The collaboration will include shared research projects, lectures, and industrial summer courses on Microservices and DevOps.

Marco Peressotti joined the Dagstuhl Seminar on Algorithmic Cheminformatics to give an invited talk on coinductive techniques for the study of concurrent complex systems. The event kickstarted new research projects with the Algorithms research group at IMADA thus fostering the fruitful collaboration between our groups.

During the discussion panels at Microservices 2017, participants recognised the importance of constituting a communal place where international people from research institutions, private companies, universities, and public organisations (like municipalities) can share knowledge and foster collaborations about microservices.

CL organised the first International Conference on Microservices with the aim to provide a forum for the discussion of all aspects of designing and programming microservice architectures. Both theoretical and experimental contributions are welcome, on topics ranging from formal frameworks to industrial experience reports and demonstrations.

Edition 2016 of the Meeting on Microservices (MoM2016) took place on December 20th, 2016. The event has been mainly organised by ItalianaSoftware, a close industrial collaborator of CL.
