[DMANET] DEBS 2014 deadline extension (abstracts: Feb 1, paper Feb 10)

Please, note that the deadlines for research abstracts (Feb 1st) and
paper submission (February 10) are extended.

DEBS 2014: 8th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event Based
May 26th-29th 2014, IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India,
Co-sponsored by ACM SIGMOD and ACM SIGSOFT

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), and
enterprise-related topics (e.g., complex event detection, enterprise
application integration, real-time enterprises and web services).

=== DEBS2014 tracks:

- A Research Track featuring high-quality, peer-reviewed research papers.
- An Industry Track for systems and concepts and experience reports.
- A Tutorial Track geared towards both academia and industry.
- A Demonstration and Posters Track with practical demonstrations and
early work.
- A Grand Challenges Track to test research and commercial systems.
- A Doctoral Workshop.
