DEBS 2021

15TH ACM INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DISTRIBUTED AND EVENT-BASED SYSTEMS

28th June – 2nd July 2021

Milan, Italy (Online Conference)

About COVID-19

Due to the current situation around COVID-19, the conference general chairs together with the program chairs and the DEBS Steering Committee have decided to hold DEBS 2021 as a fully virtual conference on the original dates. More details will be forthcoming.

Regardless of this decision, full proceedings of all accepted papers will be produced and published in the ACM Digital Library.

About DEBS

Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event‐based Systems (DEBS) has become the premier venue for cutting-edge research in the field of event processing and distributed computing, and the integration of distributed and event-based systems in relevant domains such as Big Data, AI/ML, IoT, and Blockchain. 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 its tutorials, research papers, and the Grand Challenge.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Models, architectures and paradigms: Complex event processing, event-driven architectures, trustworthy event-based systems, real-time analytics, intelligent event processing, event processing in big and fast data, data stream processing, security and encryption in stream processing, complex event forecasting, in-network processing, logic-based complex event recognition, online relational learning, distributed event pattern learning, event correlation and pattern languages.

Systems and software: Distributed data processing, distributed programming, federated event-based systems, AI/ML for event processing, information-centric networking, software-defined networking, security, reliability and resilience, distributed ledger and blockchains, programmable hardware, energy management and green computing as well as cloud, fog, ubiquitous and mobile computing.

Applications: Use cases, requirements and applications of distributed and event-based systems in various domains including Internet-of-Things, life sciences, moving object applications, smart cities, cyber-physical systems, sensor networks, social networking, multimedia analytics, finance, healthcare and logistics, computer and network security, smart contracts and blockchains. 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 a timely fashion to changing situations.

Beyond the above topics, the DEBS 2021 research track will highlight the following focus areas: machine learning for complex event processing, distributed and event-based systems for the COVID-19 pandemic. The Conference Committee encourages submissions in these focus areas, and will highlight these in the conference in separate sessions. Submissions to the focus areas will be overseen by dedicated area chairs but reviewed according to the same standards and procedures as other DEBS Research paper submissions.
