[DMANET] Call for Tutorials,DEBS 2013

Call for Tutorials
DEBS 2013: 7th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based
Arlington, Texas, USA, June 29 - July 3, 2013

The scope of the ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based
Systems 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 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 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.

DEBS 2013 will host a one-day, multi-track tutorial program to provide
independent instruction on topics related to event-based computing, both
fitting for the research audience and to an industrial audience. We
solicit both long (3 hours) and short (1.5 hours) tutorials. A tutorial
may cover a wide scope of topics ranging from practical techniques and
guidelines over standards 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,
the assumed background of attendees, and
the name, affiliation, contact information (email and phone) and
brief biography of the speaker(s).

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 10 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 Information

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 are encouraged to make use of the ACM SIGS Proceedings templates
