DEBS 2007 Inaugural International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems 2007 (June 20-22, 2007, in Toronto, Canada)

The Inaugural International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) is following on the success of the previous five editions of the DEBS workshops held from 2002 to 2006 in companion with major conferences such as ICDCS, ICSE, and SIGMOD/PODS. The conference is organized in cooperation with USENIX, the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society, and ACM (SIGMOD and SIGSOFT).

The objectives of the DEBS Conference are to provide a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting on relevant experience relating to event-based computing that was previously scattered across several scientific and professional communities. The conference also aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas, for example, through industry papers and demo papers.

Please use the DEBS'07 Collaborate Wiki to participate in the discussion around issues in event-based systems (registration is needed to prevent spammers from misusing the wiki):
