DEBS 2009

3rd ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems

July 6-9, 2009 - Nashville, TN, USA

Call for Papers (pdf)

Event-based systems are rapidly gaining importance in many application domains ranging from real time monitoring systems in production, logistics and networking to complex event processing in finance and security. The event based paradigm has gathered momentum as witnessed by current efforts in areas including publish/subscribe systems, event-driven architectures, complex event processing, business process management and modelling, Grid computing, Web services notifications, information dissemination, event stream processing, and message-oriented middleware. The various communities dealing with event based systems have made progress in different aspects of the problem. The DEBS conference attempts to bring together researchers and practitioners active in the various sub communities to share their views and reach a common understanding.

The scope of the conference covers all topics relevant to event-based computing ranging from those discussed in related disciplines (e.g., coordination, software engineering, peer-to-peer systems, Grid computing, and streaming databases), over domain-specific topics of event-based computing (e.g., workflow management systems, mobile computing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, sensor networks, user interfaces, component integration, Web services, and embedded systems), to enterprise related topics (e.g., complex event detection, enterprise application integration, real time enterprises, and Web services notifications).

Conference Scope

The topics addressed by the conference include (but are not limited to):

Models, Architectures and Paradigms
Middleware Infrastructures for Event-Based Computing
Applications, Experiences, and Requirements

Conference Location

The conference will be held at Vanderbilt University(map), Nashville, TN, USA.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the conference.

Three types of paper submissions will be accepted:

Submitted papers should clearly indicate on the first page the submission type. Industry submissions will be evaluated by an Industry Committee.

The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

The conference adopts a double blind review process, where neither authors nor reviewers know each others' identities.

Papers must not exceed the given number of pages for the respective paper type. The required format for the submission is the ACM SIG Proceedings Style. The author kit containing templates for the required style can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html. The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-references should be in the third person. This is to facilitate a double-blind review process. Please apply the ACM Computing Classification categories and terms, which can be found at http://www.acm.org/class/1998/.
