DEBS 2019:  ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-based Systems
Darmstadt, Germany (June 24-28)


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.

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.

Doctoral Symposium
The doctoral symposium welcomes submissions from doctoral candidates working in the field of distributed and event-based computing. The doctoral symposium allows for discussing and obtaining feedback on preliminary research work from experienced researchers.

This year's doctoral symposium will be co-located with the DEBS 2019 Summer School on Monday June 24, 2019. Please, find more details at http://debs2019.org/Program/DEBS_Summer_School.html.

Important Dates
Poster and demo paper submissions: Apr 22nd, 2019
Doctoral symposium extended abstract submissions: Apr 22nd, 2019
Author notification: May 09th, 2019

Submissions for Posters and Demos
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 2019 submission site. You may include links to additional online material such as videos. Links to videos showing the demonstration are encouraged.

Submissions for the Doctoral Symposium
The submission consists of a (singly authored) extended abstract of at most 4 pages, including:

- A clear description of the problem being addressed and what makes that problem interesting and relevant such that it warrants scientific research.
- A brief description of what others have been doing in the field.
- A hint of a possible solution and the path chosen how to get to that solution (i.e., the chosen research methodology).

Submitted abstracts are required to adhere to the two column “sigconf” ACM conference proceeding style. Templates and examples in LaTeX and various versions of Microsoft Word are available for download from the 2017 ACM Master Article Template page. The abstracts can be submitted Via EasyChair (PDF files only). For student authors, the submission should also include a short statement from the advisor that certifies the status of PhD student and approves the submitted extended abstract.

We encourage submissions from students and researchers. Authors, whose submissions are accepted, will have the opportunity to present their work during the summer school.
