Objectives & Scope:

Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-based Systems (DEBS) has become the premier venue for contributions in the fields of distributed and event-based systems. The objectives of the 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 scope of the conference includes systems dealing with detecting, processing and responding to events and with massively distributed middleware and applications. Examples of application domains covered by the conference include IOT, sensor networks, social networking, finance, healthcare and logistics.
