Welcome to DEBS 2011

The 5th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) builds on the success of first four editions from 2007. DEBS Conference success is rooted in 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 has received full ACM sponsorship since 2009.

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.

The venue for the DEBS 2011 edition will be the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, the headquarters for IBM Research. Yorktown Heights is located in the Lower Hudson River Valley, a historic site for the American Revolutionary War and home of some of the most famous mansions in the United States. The area is close by New York City.
