Objective

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 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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DEBS will be organized as a virtual event.

Demos

Demonstrations present first-hand experience with research prototypes or operational systems. Demonstrations also provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing event-based systems and to obtain feedback from expert users. Demonstration submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the scope of the conference (see https://2021.debs.org for the detailed scope of the conference).

Demonstration submissions describe the objectives and findings addressed by the demonstration, in 4 pages, following the ACM format for the conference proceedings. The demonstration submissions are single-blind. All demo submissions should have a prefix “Demo:” in their title. All submissions are strongly encouraged, but not required, to provide in their submission a URL to a live online version of their demo or, alternatively, provide a URL (e.g, Youtube) to a video showcasing the main demo features (this is intended for the sole purpose of submission review and selection). Demonstrations that make their source code freely available are especially encouraged. Accepted contributions will be published (excluding the appendix) by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of accepted demo contributions are expected to prepare a 5-minute video of their demonstration before the conference, which will be showcased during the virtual DEBS poster and demo session, followed by online live discussion among participants.

Posters

Poster presentations offer researchers an excellent forum to present and discuss preliminary research findings as well as novel and original ideas related to DEBS. Poster submissions describe ideas, approaches, and possibly preliminary findings, following the ACM format for the conference proceedings using up to 2 pages. Poster submissions are also single-blind. All poster submissions should have a prefix “Poster:” Accepted contributions will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of accepted poster contributions are expected to prepare, before the conference, a 5-minute video presenting their poster. This video will be showcased during the DEBS poster and demo session, followed by online live discussion among participants.
