                      CALL FOR PAPERS

10th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems

        	       Irvine, CA, USA,
        	       June 20-24 2016



Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed
and Event- based Systems (DEBS) has become the premier venue for
contributions in the fields of distributed and event-based systems.
The objectives of the ACM International Conference on Distributed and
Event-Based Systems (DEBS) 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. The conference aims at providing a
forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas through industry
papers and demo papers.


Starting this year DEBS is extending its scope to embrace a broader
set of topics related to distributed systems and event-based
computing. Topics of particular interest may include (but are not
limited to) models, architectures and paradigms of distributed and
event-based systems, middleware systems and frameworks, and
applications, experiences and requirements. The scope of the DEBS
conference covers all topics relevant to distributed and event-based
computing ranging from those discussed in related disciplines (e.g.,
software systems, distributed systems, distributed data processing,
data management, dependability, knowledge management, networking,
programming languages, security and software engineering), to domain-
specific topics of event-based computing (e.g., real-time analytics,
mobile computing, social networking, pervasive, green computing and
ubiquitous computing, sensors networks, user interfaces, big data
processing, spatio-temporal processing, cloud computing, the Internet
of things, peer-to-peer computing, embedded systems and stream
processing), to enterprise-related topics (e.g., complex event
detection, enterprise application integration, real-time enterprises
and web services).

In addition to these traditional topics, the scope of DEBS 2016 will
include the increasingly important area of Internet of Things. New
advances in distributed and event-based systems pose a great potential
for a major contribution in this area. For further information, please
refer to the call for contributions in the track of your choice.


1)  Models, Architectures and Paradigms: Event-driven architectures,
event processing in big data, complex event processing, rule-based
systems, logic-based event recognition, event correlation and pattern

2)  Middleware infrastructures: Distributed data processing,
distributed programming, federated event-based systems, event
dissemination on P2P systems, fault tolerance, reliability and
availability and scalability.

3)  Applications, Experience and Requirements: Use cases and
applications of distributed and event-based systems in various domains
including  Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Smart Grids, Finance,

DEBS 2016 will be organized along six tracks:

1. Research Track that presents original research contributions.
Submissions will be evaluated by an experienced program committee
consisting of eminent researchers from all over the world.

2. Industry and Experience Reports Track meant to report on innovative
deployments of event-based systems. Contributions will be reviewed by
researchers and industry practitioners working in event-based

3. The Tutorial Track where recognized experts in the field will
present their tutorials on relevant emerging areas of research.

4. Poster and Demo Track where authors can report on work in progress
and/or arrange to demonstrate interesting ideas and applications
pertaining to event- based systems.

5. Doctoral Symposium Track meant for doctoral candidates whose
research area overlaps with event-based systems.

6. Grand Challenge Track: Here the committee will set out a grand
challenge problem and then judge the most innovative approaches for
its solution.


Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will
be published in the ACM Digital Library. The authors of accepted
papers will be given a choice between different copyright agreements,
in accordance with the recent changes in the ACM policy. The options
will include new opportunities for open access as well as the
traditional ACM copyright agreement.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: A new policy by ACM will allow DEBS 2016 to make
the proceedings available ahead of the conference via the ACM Digital
Library. Thus, the official publication date is the date the
proceedings appear in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to
two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related
to published work.
