The ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-Based Systems (DEBS) is soliciting proposals for affiliated workshops. The purpose of the workshops is to provide a forum for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas, and discussing preliminary results in an interactive atmosphere.

We seek proposals for workshops on any topics likely to be of interest to the DEBS community, which include (but are not limited to):

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Main Content

    A workshop proposal should contain all pertinent information, including:

  • Workshop title
  • A short (150-200 words) abstract of the topic and format of the workshop
  • A detailed explanation of why the proposed workshop is appropriate for DEBS 2024
  • Names, affiliations and contact details of the workshop chair(s), publicity chair(s)
  • Special considerations regarding proceedings (if any)
  • Organization

    We also ask you to already provide some details regarding the organization of the proposed Workshop:

  • Expected number of participants
  • In case of previous instances of the workshop:
  • the historical numbers of participants
  • the historical submission and acceptance counts
  • Preferred workshop duration (half day or full day)
  • A description of the submission review process, including how conflicts of interest will be handled
  • Rationale about recruiting the PC of the workshop, for example, diversity considerations (academia/industry, geography, gender, seniority, etc). These criteria should also be taken into account for the choice of the PC Chairs of each workshop.
  • Tentative list of PC members
  • Potential (or accepted) invited talks, keynotes, tutorials, or panels
  • Publicity and sponsorship plans
  • Organizational Details

    The DEBS 2024 organization provides:

  • Coordinate paper deadlines and acceptance notifications with the DEBS 2024 Workshop Chairs
  • Provide input for publicity to the local organizers of DEBS 2024
