Call for Posters and Demos

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 demonstration. In addition, authors should describe in a clearly marked appendix, the setup of the demonstration and the requirements. Accepted contributions will be published (excluding the appendix) by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.



Poster presentations offer researchers an excellent forum to present and discuss preliminary research findings as well as novel and original ideas related to DEBS. Submissions describe ideas, approaches, and possibly preliminary findings, following the ACM format for the conference proceedings using up to 2 pages. Accepted contributions will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.


Submission Guidelines and Requirements

Poster and demo papers should be submitted through the DEBS 2017 submission site.
