Call for Research Papers

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.

The DEBS conference covers topics in distributed and event-based
computing. The scope of the conference includes systems dealing with
collecting, detecting, processing and responding to events through
distributed middleware and applications. Examples of application
domains covered by the conference include the Internet of Things,
sensor networks, social networking, finance, healthcare and logistics,
computer and network security. Technologies discussed include real-time 
analytics, complex-event detection, reliability and resilience,
distributed ledger and blockchains, energy management and green
computing, data stream processing, big/fast data analysis, event
processing for AI/ML, AI/ML for event processing, security and
encryption in stream processing, embedded systems, and cloud, peer-to-
peer, ubiquitous and mobile computing. Topics relevant to enterprise-
level computing include enterprise application integration, real-time
enterprises, Web services and support for enterprises to respond in a
timely fashion to changing situations. Topics covered include, but are
not limited to:


Event-driven architectures, real-time analytics, complex event
processing, event processing for AI/ML, event processing in big and
fast data, data stream processing, security and encryption in stream
processing, rule-based systems, in-network processing, logic-based
event recognition, event correlation, and pattern languages.

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.

Use cases, requirements and applications of distributed and event-based 
systems in various domains including Internet-of-Things, 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.

Abstract submission for research track: March 13, 2020
Research paper submission: March 20, 2020
Research paper notification: May 3, 2020
Camera-ready deadline: May 28, 2020
Conference: July 13 - 17, 2020

All submissions must be original and unpublished. Accepted papers will
be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

Authors Take Note: A new policy by ACM will allow DEBS 2020 to make the
proceedings available ahead of the conference via the ACM Digital
Library. Thus, the official publication date is the date the
proceedings appear in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to
two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to
published work.

The conference adopts a double-blind review process for the research
track, where neither authors nor reviewers know each other's
identities. This means that papers must not list or otherwise identify
the authors. References to previous work should be done in the third
person as to not reveal the identities of the authors. Research track
submissions that are not anonymous may be rejected without review.

Research Track papers must be no longer than 12 pages. The authors of
accepted papers will be given a choice between different copyright
agreements, in accordance with the recent changes in the ACM policy.
The options will include new opportunities for open access as well as
the traditional ACM copyright agreement. Papers can be submitted via
HotCRP (PDF files only). Submissions to the research track will be
evaluated by a Research Program Committee.

Submitted papers are required to adhere to the two columns "sigconf"
ACM conference proceeding style. Templates and examples in LaTeX and
various versions of Microsoft Word are available for download from the
2019 ACM Master Article Template page.
