==============CALL FOR PAPERS=================

17th ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-Based Systems
Neuchâtel, Switzerland
June 27-30, 2023


The ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event‐Based Systems
(DEBS) is a 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 in general. DEBS 2023 will be a forum dedicated to the
dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights,
and the reporting of experiences relevant to distributed and event‐based

We solicit high-quality submissions, with several options for authors
depending on the nature of their contribution. All submissions will undergo
an extensive peer review process.

*New*: This year, the conference adopts a dual-deadline model, with an
opportunity to submit either in the Fall or in the Spring, for presentation
at the conference in June.

**** Scope ****

The DEBS conference covers topics in distributed and event-based computing
for a wide range of application domains and computing environments. The
conference aims at presenting novel solutions for collecting, detecting,
processing, analyzing and responding to events through distributed
middleware and platforms.

Topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to:

*Models, architectures and paradigms*: Complex event processing,
event-driven architectures, trustworthy event-based systems, real-time
analytics, intelligent event processing, event processing in big and fast
data, data stream processing, security and encryption in stream processing,
complex event forecasting, in-network processing, logic-based complex event
recognition, online relational learning, distributed event pattern
learning, event correlation, and pattern languages.

*Systems and software*: 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.

*Applications*: Use cases, requirements, and applications of distributed
and event-based systems in various domains including Internet-of-Things,
life sciences, moving object applications, smart cities, 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.

**** Important Dates ****

Deadlines expire at 11:59pm AoE.

DEBS 2022 will have two submission cycles for the research track. There
will be a rebuttal phase for both submission cycles. We provide the
possibility for papers that are considered promising but not ready to offer
one-shot revisions between the Fall and Spring deadlines. More information
is provided below.

**Fall cycle**

- Submission deadline for research track: November 25, 2022 (Extended)
- Rebuttal phase: January 7-11, 2022
- Acceptance notification: January 20, 2023
- Camera ready deadline: March 3, 2023

**Spring cycle**

- Abstract registration for research track: February 17, 2023
- Submission deadline for research track: February 24, 2023
- Rebuttal phase: April 13-17, 2023
- Acceptance notification: April 27, 2023
- Camera ready deadline: May 26, 2023

- Conference: June 27-30, 2023

**** Organizers ****

- General chair:
Valerio Schiavoni (University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland)

- PC chairs:
Bettina Kemme (McGill University, Canada)
Etienne Rivière (UCLouvain, Belgium)

**** Submissions options ****

The DEBS 2023 research track welcomes papers in the following categories:

- Regular and short papers, presenting original research results on the
topics of DEBS as well as experimental papers that provide new insights
into the behavior of existing algorithms and systems. Authors should state
their submission type (regular/short) in the title.
Notice that authors that submit a paper as regular might be offered the
opportunity of having their work published as a short paper.
Page limits: 12 pages for regular papers (including references) and 6 pages
for short papers (including references).

- Vision papers, outlining futuristic distributed and event-based systems.
Submissions should describe novel early-stage projects with eventually high
impact. Each submission should clearly state the success criteria of the
futuristic system. Page limit: 6 pages (all-inclusive).

Authors of selected, top-rated papers from DEBS 2023 may be invited to
submit an extended version of their paper to a journal special issue. Check
the conference website for updates on this matter.

All submissions must be original, unpublished and cannot be under review
for another publishing forum during the time it is under submission to DEBS.

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 or any other material must not list or otherwise identify
the authors. References to previous work should be done in the third person
so as to not reveal the identities of the authors. Submissions that are not
anonymous may be rejected without review.

Submissions to the research track will be evaluated by the Research Program
Committee. The authors of accepted papers will be given a choice between
different copyright agreements, according to ACM policies. The options will
include opportunities for open access as well as the traditional ACM
copyright agreement.

Submitted papers are required to adhere to the two-column "sigplan" ACM
conference proceeding style, with a minimal font size of 10pt. Templates
and examples in LaTeX and various versions of Microsoft Word are available
for download from https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template

**** Dual deadline conditions ****

DEBS 2023 adopts a dual-deadline model, with a submission deadline in the
Fall and another one in the Spring.

Authors of papers receiving a Reject decision for the Fall deadline are not
allowed to resubmit to the Spring deadline for DEBS 2023. There are,
however, no constraints for a resubmission to a future edition of DEBS.

In specific cases, the program committee may decide to offer a one-shot
revision decision for authors of papers submitted to the Fall deadline,
that would be considered promising but lacking in presentation or clarity.
In this case, authors will have the possibility to send an updated version
to the Spring deadline for reevaluation.

Papers must be submitted using the HotCRP system using one of the following

- Fall cycle: https://debs2023-fall.hotcrp.com/
- Spring cycle: https://debs2023-spring.hotcrp.com/
