DEBS 2009 : 2nd International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems
Conference Series : Distributed Event-Based Systems
Call For Papers
Event-based systems are rapidly gaining importance in many application domains ranging from real time monitoring systems in production, logistics and networking to complex event processing in finance and security. The event based paradigm has gathered momentum as witnessed by current efforts in areas including publish/subscribe systems, event-driven architectures, complex event processing, business process management and modelling, Grid computing, Web services notifications, information dissemination, event stream processing, and message-oriented middleware. The various communities dealing with event based systems have made progress in different aspects of the problem. The DEBS conference attempts to bring together researchers and practitioners active in the various sub communities to share their views and reach a common understanding.
The scope of the conference covers all topics relevant to event-based computing ranging from those discussed in related disciplines (e.g., coordination, software engineering, peer-to-peer systems, Grid computing, and streaming databases), over domain-specific topics of event-based computing (e.g., workflow management systems, mobile computing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, sensor networks, user interfaces, component integration, Web services, and embedded systems), to enterprise related topics (e.g., complex event detection, enterprise application integration, real time enterprises, and Web services notifications).
The topics addressed by the conference include (but are not limited to):
Models, Architectures and Paradigms
* Event-driven architectures
* Basic interaction models
* Event algebras, event schemas and type systems
* Languages for event correlation and patterns, streaming and continuous queries, data fusion
* Models for static and dynamic environments
* Complex event processing
* Design and programming methodologies
* Event-based business process management and modeling
* Experimental methodologies
* Performance modeling and prediction based on analytic approaches
Middleware Infrastructures for Event-Based Computing
* Federated event-based systems
* Middleware for actuator and sensor networks
* Algorithms and protocols
* Event dissemination based on p2p systems
* Context and location awareness
* Fault-tolerance, reliability, availability, and recovery
* Security issues
* Mobility and resource constrained device support
* Streaming queries, transformations, or correlation engines
Applications, Experiences, and Requirements
* Use cases and applications of event-based systems
* Real-world application deployments using event-based middleware
* Domain-specific deployments of event-based systems
* Real-world data characterizing event-based applications
* Benchmarks, performance evaluations, and testbeds
* Application requirements for next-generation event-based solutions
* Relation to other architectures
* Enterprise application integration
* Event-driven business process management
* Information logistics
* Seamless integration of event-based mechanisms into middleware platforms
Important Dates (tenative)
Abstract submission: Feb 23, 2009
Paper submission: Mar 2, 2009
Author notification: Apr 27, 2009
Final manuscript: May 18, 2009
DEBS Conference: Jul 6-9, 2009
The conference will be held at Vanderbilt University(map), Nashville, USA.
All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the conference.
Three types of paper submissions will be accepted:
* research papers (max. 12 pages): a research paper describes new results that advance the state-of-the-art in basic or applied research.
* industry papers (max. 8 pages): an industry paper describes the design, the experience (in building, deploying and running), or the performance of an industry system. Commonly, the majority of authors on the paper are from industry. Product marketing material will not be accepted as papers.
* demo papers (max. 4 pages): a demo paper reports on an existing research prototype by clearly identifying the original contributions and ideas demonstrated. The authors are expected to prepare a poster and perform a live software demonstration on their own laptop during an exhibit-style conference reception. Any special requirements should be identified in the appendix of the paper.
Submitted papers should clearly indicate on the first page the submission type. Industry submissions will be evaluated by an Industry Committee.
The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.
The conference adopts a double blind review process, where neither authors nor reviewers know each others' identities.
Papers must not exceed the given number of pages for the respective paper type. The required format for the submission is the ACM SIG Proceedings Style. The author kit containing templates for the required style can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html. The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-references should be in the third person. This is to facilitate a double-blind review process. Please apply the ACM Computing Classification categories and terms, which can be found at http://www.acm.org/class/1998/.
