The call for workshops has now closed, and the workshop programme has been published.

The ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-Based Systems (DEBS) is soliciting proposals for affiliated workshops. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and preliminary results. We seek proposals for workshops on any topics likely to be of interest to the DEBS community, which include (but are not limited to):

  • Models, Architectures and Paradigms: Event-driven architectures, real-time analytics, complex event processing, event processing in big data, stream processing, rule-based systems, logic-based event recognition, event correlation and pattern languages.
  • Middleware infrastructures: Distributed data processing, distributed programming, federated event-based systems, information-centric networking, fault tolerance, reliability, availability, and scalability, as well as cloud, peer-to-peer, ubiquitous and mobile computing.
  • Applications, Experience and Requirements: Use cases and applications of distributed and event-based systems in various domains including internet of things, cyber-physical systems, sensor networks, network monitoring, online machine learning, online graph algorithms, smart cities, smart grids, finance, healthcare, transportation, and logistics. Also, relevant topics span enterprise-level computing, including enterprise application integration, real-time enterprises, event-based business process management, and support for enterprises to respond in timely fashion to changing situations.

Workshops may be either half or full-day in duration. Accepted workshop papers will be published in conference proceedings.
