The 2nd International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) is following on the success of first edition held in 2007 and 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, ACM (SIGMOD and SIGSOFT), and IFIP. USENIX is offering a number of grants to cover student registration fees. More informations can be found here.

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 scope of the conference covers all topics relevant to event-based computing ranging from those discussed in related disciplines (e.g. coordination, dependability, software engineering, peer-to-peer systems, Grid computing and streaming databases), to domain-specific topics of event-based computing (e.g. workflow management systems, mobile computing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, sensors networks, user interfaces, component integration, Web services and embedded systems), to enterprise related topics (e.g. complex event detection, enterprise application integration, real time enterprises and Web services notifications).

The conference also aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas, for example, through industry papers and demo papers.

The venue will be the Dipartimento di Informatica e Sistemistica "Antonio Ruberti", Sapienza Università di Roma, Via Ariosto 25 (map), Roma, Italy.
