The objectives of the ACM International Conference on Distributed 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 event-based computing that were previously scattered across several scientific and professional communities. The conference also aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas, for example, through industry papers and demo papers.
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. The authors are expected to prepare a poster and perform a live software demonstration. Demonstration submissions describe in 4 pages following the ACM format for the conference proceedings the objectives and findings addressed by the demonstrator. In addition, authors should describe in a clearly marked appendix the setup of the demonstrator and the requirements. Accepted contributions will be published (excluding appendix) by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.
Poster presentations offer researchers an excellent forum to present and discuss preliminary research findings and novel and original ideas related to DEBS. Submissions describe the idea, approach and possibly preliminary findings following the ACM format for the conference proceedings using up to 4 pages. Accepted contributions will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.
Posters and demos need to be exhibited by an author at the conference venue as part of the demo and poster session. To submit a demo, please add "Demo:" at the beginning of the manuscript's title. To submit a poster abstract, please add "Poster:" at the beginning of the manuscript's title. Only PDF documents will be accepted and should be submitted through the DEBS 2018 submission site. You may include links to additional online material such as videos. Links to videos showing the demonstration are encouraged.
