Call for Tutorials

The scope of the ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-Based Systems (DEBS) covers all topics 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 and ubiquitous computing, sensors networks, user interfaces, big data processing, spatio-temporal processing, Cloud computing, the internet of things, peer-to-peer computing and embedded systems), to enterprise-related topics (e.g., complex event detection, enterprise application integration, real-time enterprises and web services). Topics addressed by the conference may include (but are not limited to) models, architectures and paradigms of event-based systems, middleware systems and frameworks, and applications, experiences and requirements.

DEBS 2018 will host a one-day, multi-track tutorial program to provide independent instruction on topics related to distributed and event-based computing, both fitting for the research audience and to an industrial audience. We solicit both full-day and half-day tutorials. A tutorial may cover a wide scope of topics ranging from practical techniques and guidelines over relevant standards through to theoretical work. Please note that no marketing or product-specific tutorials will be accepted. Tutorial levels may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced. Topics of broad interest are preferred.

A tutorial proposal of 1–3 pages should include:

  • the proposed title,
  • a structured description of the contents,
  • a description of the expected outcomes for attendees,
  • the assumed background of attendees, and
  • the name, affiliation, email and brief biography of the speaker(s).
  • any prior experience giving this or related tutorial

Accepted Proposals

Proposers of accepted tutorials are given the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper. The content of a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 4 pages. Submitted tutorial papers will be reviewed prior to publication, and may be rejected for publication if either the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the content of the tutorial. Tutorial papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

Submission Instructions

All paper submissions must be original and unpublished. Submissions must be in the ACM format for conference proceedings. Only PDF documents will be accepted.

Authors should make use of the ACM SIGS Proceedings templates.

Please email your submissions to the Tutorial Co-Chairs at and with the subject heading “DEBS 2018 Tutorial Submission”.
