Call For Papers

Call for Papers: GRAND CHALLENGE – DEBS 2017
June 19 - 23, Barcelona Spain

The 2017 ACM DEBS Grand Challenge ( is the seventh in a series of challenges which seek to provide a common ground and uniform evaluation criteria for a competition aimed at both research and industrial event-based systems. The focus of the DEBS 2017 Grand Challenge is on the analysis of RDF streaming data generated by digital and analogue sensors embedded within manufacturing equipment.

This year’s Grand Challenge is co-organized by the HOBBIT project represented by AGT International within the 11th ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-Based Systems (DEBS 2017, Both the data set and the automated evaluation platform are provided by the HOBBIT project.

Challenge Description

The 2017 DEBS Grand Challenge focuses on two scenarios that relate to the problem of automatic detection of anomalies for manufacturing equipment. The overall goal of both scenarios is to detect abnormal behavior of a manufacturing machine based on the observation of the stream of measurements provided by such a machine. Check more about our RDF steaming here . The data produced by each sensor is clustered and the state transitions between the observed clusters are modeled as a Markov chain. Based on this classification, anomalies are detected as sequences of transitions that happen with a probability lower than a given threshold. The difference between the first and the second scenario is that in the first scenario the number of machines to observe is fixed, while in the second scenarios new machines dynamically join and leave the set of observable machines.

Participants in the 2017 DEBS Grand Challenge will have the chance to win two prizes. The first prize is the “Grand Challenge Award” for the best performing, correct submission. The second prize is the “Grand Challenge Audience Award” – it is determined based on the audience feedback provided after the presentation of the Grand Challenge solutions during the DEBS 2017 conference.
