ACM DEBS 2018 — Call for Papers
Research, Industry, and Grand Challenge tracks; Tutorials and Workshops
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
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.
Structure of the conference
Please check http://debs.org/2018/calls/ for how to participate:
1. The Research Track presents original research contributions.
Submissions will be evaluated by an experienced program committee
consisting of eminent researchers from all around the world.
2. 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.
3. Workshops are often co-located with the DEBS conference. Please
check the website for more details.
4. Submissions to the Industry Track are expected to report on
innovative developments of event-based systems. Contributions will be
reviewed by both researchers and industry practitioners.
5. In the Tutorial Track recognised experts in the field will present
their tutorials on relevant emerging areas of research.
6. 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.
7. The Doctoral Symposium Track is intended to receive submissions from
doctoral candidates whose research topics overlap with distributed and
Some Important Dates
- Abstract submission for research track: Feb 21st, 2018
- Research and industry paper submission: Feb 26th, 2018
- Research paper notification: Apr 17th, 2018
- Conference: Jun 25th–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 will be posted on the
conference website: http://debs.org/2018
