[DMANET] DEBS 2013 Doctoral Workshop Submissions extended to May 26th

Call for DEBS 2013 Doctoral Workshop Submissions
DEBS 2013: 7th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based

Arlington, Texas, USA, June 29 - July 3, 2013

*** Authors of accepted PhD Workshop papers will also participate in the
DEBS 2013 Poster and Demo Session ***
*** Travel support for US-based students is pending ***

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.

The DEBS 2013 Doctoral Workshop welcomes submissions from students who
are enrolled in a PhD program and are working on topics relevant to
those covered by the DEBS 2013 conference. We encourage submissions from
students who are at the late stages of their doctoral work, and who can
therefore present a relatively "complete" story about their research. We
also encourage submissions from students in the beginning stages of
their program, and thus have a significant "future work" component. The
former category will have the opportunity to present their research to a
wider audience in preparation for a job search, whereas the latter can
obtain valuable feedback about their upcoming research plans. Students
in both stages of their careers will benefit from interacting with each
other, as well as with members of the event processing research
community represented at the conference.


The Program Committee for this workshop consists mainly of distinguished
researchers who are prominent in the field of event-based systems or who
have obtained their own PhDs not too long ago. Members of the Program
Committee will attend the doctoral workshop to encourage and help,
answer questions and give feedback. The doctoral workshop will provide a
friendly and supportive atmosphere for PhD students. There will be time
to get to know other students and researchers from a range of countries
and backgrounds and to have fun as well as to work.

To provide broader interaction with the DEB community, PhD workshop
participants will also participate in the DEBS 2013 Post and Demo Session.

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
available at

Submissions to all tracks of DEBS 2013 are made through the DEBS 2013
submission site on EasyChair by 11:59 PM
(GMT) on the due date. Questions about submissions can be sent to the
DEBS 2013 program chairs at

Doctoral Workshop papers should describe the problem addressed as part
of the PhD work, explain its importance, discuss shortcomings of
existing solutions and give some indication of steps towards a solution.
There should be enough substance to encourage discussion at the
workshop, but the work does not need to be complete. Please also include
a thesis outline and a summary of further planned work.

Submitted papers for the doctoral workshop are limited to 4 pages.
Submissions must be single-author with the name of the supervisor
mentioned. No copyrighted proceedings will be published so that future
publication of the work in conferences/journals is not precluded.
Accepted submissions will be made available electronically to all
participants at

Important: We will not accept submissions that are typical conference
paper submissions without explicit focus on the PhD work.

Conference June 29-July 3, 2013
