[DMANET] ACM DEBS 2018: Call for Demos, Posters and Doctoral Symposium

ACM DEBS 2018 —

Where: Hamilton, New Zealand

When: 25 - 29 June 2018

Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed

and Event-Based Systems (DEBS) has become one of the leading venues for

contributions in the fields of distributed and event-based systems. The

ACM DEBS conference provides 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. It brings together academia and industry to discuss

innovative technology and exchange ideas.


The DEBS conference covers topics both in distributed and in 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. Topics include, but are not

limited to:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

Please check for how to participate:

1. The Grand Challenge Track involves developing systems that can solve
a specified set of challenge problems, given real-world input data.
Solutions will be judged in terms of how innovatively they solve the
challenge problems, and how the compare to others' solutions.

2. The Poster and Demo Track will accept authors' reports on work in
progress, and/or demonstrations of interesting ideas and applications
that involve distributed and event‐based systems.

3. The Doctoral Symposium Track is intended to receive submissions from
doctoral candidates whose research topics overlap with distributed and
event-based systems.

Some Important Dates

- Grand challenge solution submission: May 7th, 2018
- Poster, demo & doctoral workshop submission April 29th, 2018


All submissions must be original and unpublished. Accepted papers will

be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

Note that the proceedings will be available prior to the conference, and

that the official publication date is the date the proceedings appear in

the 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 for any patent filings related to published work.

Further information about the submissions are posted on the

conference website:

* Contributions to be spread via DMANET are submitted to
* Replies to a message carried on DMANET should NOT be
* addressed to DMANET but to the original sender. The
* original sender, however, is invited to prepare an
* update of the replies received and to communicate it
* via DMANET.
