Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event‐Based Systems (DEBS) has become the 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. The objectives of the 2024 ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event‐Based Systems (DEBS 2024) are to provide 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.

DEBS 2024 will host a one-day, multi-track tutorial program to provide independent instruction on topics related to distributed and event-based computing, both fitting for the research audience and to an industrial audience. We solicit both long (2 sessions) and short (1 session) tutorials. The topic should relate to event-based systems and methods. Submissions can target a particular distributed system technology or a more general problem area of interest to the DEBS community i.e., middleware, architectures and design approaches on collecting, detecting, processing, and responding to events. Tutorials on emerging enterprise-level infrastructures and/or popular (open-source) software platforms are also highly welcomed. Yet, please note that no marketing or product-specific tutorials will be accepted. Tutorial levels may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced.

A tutorial proposal must not exceed 4 pages should include:

  • The proposed title
  • Abstract
  • A structured description of the contents
  • An indication of long or short session (full day vs half day)
  • A brief discussion about why the tutorial topic is relevant to the DEBS community
  • A description of the expected outcomes for attendees
  • Target audience: The assumed background of attendees
  • The name, affiliation, email and brief biography of the speaker(s)
  • Any prior experience for the speaker(s) giving this or related tutorial
  • References
  • Accepted Proposals

    Proposers of accepted tutorials are given the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper. The content of a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 4 pages. Submitted tutorial papers will be reviewed prior to publication, and may be rejected for publication if either the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the content of the tutorial. Note that the rejection of a tutorial paper, does not imply a rejection of the tutorial itself. Tutorial papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

    Each accepted tutorial will be listed on the website, please provide a short description to promote the tutorial on the website.
