About DEBS

The objectives of the ACM International Conference on Distributed Event Based Systems (DEBS) are to provide a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting of experiences relevant to event based computing that were previously scattered across several scientific and professional communities. The conference also aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas, for example, through industry papers and demo papers.

Scope

The scope of DEBS conference covers all topics relevant to event based computing ranging from those discussed in related disciplines (e.g., software systems, distributed systems, data management, dependability, knowledge management, networking, programming languages, security and software engineering), to domain-specific topics of event-based computing (e.g., real-time analytics, mobile computing, social networking, pervasive, green computing and ubiquitous computing, sensors networks, user interfaces, big data processing, spatio-temporal processing, Cloud computing, the internet of things, peer-to-peer computing, embedded systems and stream processing), to enterprise-related topics (e.g., complex event detection, enterprise application integration, real-time enterprises and web services). Topics addressed by the conference papers may include (but are not limited to) models, architectures and paradigms of event based systems, middleware systems and frameworks, and applications, experiences and requirements. To this scope we have now added the increasingly important area of green computing in distributed event based systems. Green computing in event based systems will focus on the challenges faced by the community in introducing energy efficient solutions in distributed event based systems. For a complete call for papers, please look at the call for contributions in the track you are interested in.

Conference Structure

DEBS 2014 will be organized along five tracks:

  1. The research track that presents original research contributions. Submissions will be evaluated by a experienced program committee consisting of eminent researchers from all over the world.
  2. The Industry and Experience Reports track meant to report on innovative deployments of event based systems. Contributions will be reviewed by researchers and industry practitioners working in event based computing.
  3. The Poster and Demo track where authors can report on work in progress and/or arrange to demonstrate interesting ideas and applications pertaining to event based systems.
  4. A Doctoral Symposium track meant only for doctoral candidates whose research area overlaps with event based systems.
  5. Grand Challenge Track: Here the committee will set out a grand challenge problem and then judge the most innovative approaches to solving the grand challenge problem.

Please look at the Call for Contributions for further details about these tracks and the scope of DEBS.
