Doctoral Symposium: June 20, 2016
Conference: June 21-23, 2016
Workshops: June 24, 2016
Over the past decade, the DEBS conference has become the premier venue for contributions in the fields of
distributed and event-based systems. Its objectives 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 industry papers and demo papers.
Starting this year, DEBS is extending its scope to embrace a broader set of topics. Topics of particular interest
may include (but are not limited to) models, architectures and paradigms of distributed and event-based
systems, middleware systems and frameworks, and applications, experiences and requirements. The scope of
the DEBS conference covers all topics relevant to distributed and event-based computing ranging from those
discussed in related disciplines (e.g., software systems, distributed systems, distributed data processing, data
management, dependability, knowledge management, networking, programming languages, security and
software engineering), to domain-specific topics of event-based computing (e.g., real-time analytics, mobile
computing, social networking, pervasive, green computing and ubiquitous computing, sensors networks, user
interfaces, big data processing, spatio-temporal processing, cloud computing, the Internet of things, peer-to-peer computing, embedded systems and stream processing), to enterprise-related topics (e.g., complex event
detection, enterprise application integration, real-time enterprises and web services). In addition to these
traditional topics, the scope of DEBS 2016 will include the increasingly important area of Internet of Things.
New advances in distributed and event-based systems pose a great potential for a major contribution in this area.
DEBS 2016 will be organized along six tracks:
1. Research Track, presenting original research contributions.
2. Industry and Experience Reports Track, reporting on innovative deployments of event-based systems.
3. Tutorial Track, where experts in the field present their tutorials on relevant emerging areas of research.
4. Poster and Demo Track, reporting on work in progress and/or demonstrations of event-based systems.
5. Doctoral Symposium Track, meant for doctoral candidates conducting research in event-based systems.
6. Grand Challenge Track, setting out a challenge problem and seeking innovative approaches for its solution.
