DEBS 2017: ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event‐based
Co-Located with PLDI and ECOOP 2017@
Barcelona, Spain (June 19 - 23, 2017)
Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed
and Event‐based Systems (DEBS) has become the premier venue for
contributions in the fields of distributed and event‐based systems. The
objectives of the ACM International Conference on Distributed and
Event‐Based Systems (DEBS) are to provide a forum dedicated to the
dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical
insights, and the reporting of experiences relevant to distributed
systems and event‐based computing. The conference aims at providing a
forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas.
The DEBS conference covers topics in distributed and event-based
computing. The scope of the conference includes systems dealing with
detecting, processing and responding to events and with massively
distributed middleware and applications. Examples of application domains
covered by the conference include the Internet of Things, sensor
networks, social networking, finance, healthcare and logistics.
Technologies discussed include real-time analytics, complex-event
detection, security, reliability and resilience, energy management and
green computing, stream processing, embedded systems, and cloud,
peer-to-peer, ubiquitous and mobile computing. Topics relevant to
enterprise-level computing include enterprise application integration,
real-time enterprises, Web services and support for enterprises to
respond in timely fashion to changing situations.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
1. Models, Architectures and Paradigms: Event-driven architectures,
event processing in big data, complex event processing, rule-based
systems, logic-based event recognition, event correlation and pattern
2. Middleware infrastructures: Distributed data processing,
distributed programming, federated event-based systems,
information-centric networking, fault tolerance, reliability,
availability and scalability.
3. Applications, Experience and Requirements: Use cases and
applications of distributed and event-based systems in various domains
including Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Smart Grids, Finance, Logistics.
1. The Research Track presents original research contributions.
Submissions will be evaluated by an experienced program committee
consisting of eminent researchers from all over the world.
2. The Industry and Experience Reports Track is meant to report on
innovative deployments of event‐based systems. Contributions will be
reviewed by researchers and industry practitioners working in
distributed and event‐based computing.
3. In the Tutorial Track recognized experts in the field will present
their tutorials on relevant emerging areas of research.
4. In the Poster and Demo Track authors report on work in progress
and/or arrange to demonstrate interesting ideas and applications
pertaining to distributed and event‐based systems.
5. The Doctoral Symposium Track is meant for doctoral candidates
whose research area overlaps with distributed and event‐based systems.
6. The Grand Challenge Track: Here the committee will set out a grand
challenge problem and then judge the most innovative approaches to its

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be
published in the ACM Digital Library. The authors of accepted papers will be
given a choice between different copyright agreements, in accordance
recent changes in the ACM policy. The options will include new opportunities
for open access as well as the traditional ACM copyright agreement.
AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: A new policy by ACM will allow DEBS 2017 to make the
proceedings available ahead of the conference via the ACM Digital Library.
Thus, the official publication date is the date the proceedings appear
ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day
of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline
patent filings related to published work.
