Posters and Demos - Call for Papers


Demonstrations present first-hand experience with research prototypes or operational systems. Demonstrations also provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing event-based systems and to obtain feedback from expert users.

Demonstration submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the scope of the conference (see for the detailed scope of the conference).

Demonstration submissions describe the objectives and findings addressed by the demonstration, in 2-4 pages, following the ACM format for the conference proceedings. All demo submissions should have a prefix “Demo:” in their title.

All submissions are strongly encouraged, but not required, to provide in their submission a URL to a live online version of their demo, or to a video showcasing the main demo features (this is intended for the sole purpose of submission review and selection).

Demonstrations that make their source code freely available are strongly encouraged, and a requirement to be considered for the best demo award.

Accepted contributions will be published (excluding the appendix) by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.


Poster presentations offer researchers an excellent forum to present and discuss preliminary research findings as well as novel and original ideas related to DEBS.

Poster submissions describe ideas, approaches, and possibly preliminary findings, following the ACM format for the conference proceedings using up to 2 pages. All poster submissions should have a prefix “Poster:” in their title.

Accepted contributions will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.
