DEBS 2024

18th ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-based Systems

June 25th–28th 2024

Lyon, France

Venue Information

The 2024 DEBS Conference will be held in the facilities of INSA Lyon situated on the LyonTech-la Doua campus. Check out details about the venue in the venue information page.


The ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event‐Based Systems (DEBS) is a premier venue for academia and industry to discuss cutting-edge research of event-based computing related to Big Data, AI/ML, IoT, and Distributed Systems in general. DEBS 2024 will be a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting of experiences relevant to distributed and event‐based systems.


The DEBS conference covers topics in distributed and event-based computing for a wide range of application domains and computing environments. The conference aims at presenting novel solutions for collecting, detecting, processing, analyzing and responding to events through distributed middleware and platforms.

Topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to:

Models, architectures and paradigms: Complex event processing, event-driven architectures, trustworthy event-based systems, real-time analytics, intelligent event processing, event processing in big and fast data, data stream processing, security and encryption in stream processing, complex event forecasting, in-network processing, logic-based complex event recognition, online relational learning, distributed event pattern learning, event correlation, and pattern languages.

Systems and software: Distributed data processing, distributed programming, federated event-based systems, AI/ML for event processing, information-centric networking, software-defined networking, security, reliability and resilience, distributed ledger and blockchains, programmable hardware, energy management, and green computing as well as cloud, fog, ubiquitous and mobile computing.

Applications: Use cases, requirements, and applications of distributed and event-based systems in various domains including Internet-of-Things, life sciences, moving object applications, smart cities, cyber-physical systems, sensor networks, social networking, multimedia analytics, finance, healthcare and logistics, computer and network security, smart contracts, and blockchains. 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 a timely fashion to changing situations.

Diversity and Inclusion

The DEBS community joins an integrated effort to promote diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our professional activities. DEBS 2024 participates in this effort alongside EDBT/ICDT, MDM, SIGMOD, VLDB, SoCC, and ICDE, to celebrate the diversity in our community and welcome everyone regardless of age, sex, gender identity, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, country of origin, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, education, work experience, etc. It also welcomes people and opinions of all political persuasions, as long as they abide by the ACM policy against hate speech and harassment.

    INSA Lyon & Université Claude-Bernard Lyon 1

    The conference will be hosted by LIRIS (Laboratoire d'InfoRmatique en Image et Systèmes d'information) through the joint effort of INSA Lyon and Université Claude-Bernard Lyon 1. INSA Lyon, also known as the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon, is a prestigious French grande école and engineering school. Established in 1957, INSA Lyon's primary objectives are to provide advanced engineering education, support lifelong learning, and engage in research activities. The Université Claude-Bernard Lyon 1 (UCBL), is one of the three public universities in Lyon. Established in 1971 through the merger of the 'faculté des sciences de Lyon' and the 'faculté de médecine', the university specializes in science and technology, medicine, and sports science.
