Call for Tutorials

DEBS 2016 will host a one-day, multi-track tutorial program on all topics related to distributed event-based computing, valuable to both the research audience and to an industrial audience. We solicit both long (3 hours) and short (1.5 hours) tutorials. A tutorial may cover a broad spectrum of topics that fit the scope of DEBS, ranging from practical techniques and guidelines over standards to theoretical work. Please note that no marketing or product specific tutorials will be accepted. Tutorial levels may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced. Topics of broad interest are preferred.

A tutorial proposal of 1-3 pages should include:

  • the proposed title,
  • a structured description of the contents,
  • the assumed background of attendees,
  • details of past offerings of this tutorial and
  • the name, affiliation, contact information (email and phone) and brief biography of the speaker(s).

Accepted Proposals

Proposers of accepted tutorials are given the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper. The content of a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 10 pages. Submitted tutorial papers will be reviewed prior to publication, and may be rejected for publication if either the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the content of the tutorial.

Note to Authors: A new policy by ACM will allow DEBS 2016 to make the proceedings available ahead of the conference via the ACM Digital Library. Thus, the official publication date is the date the proceedings appear in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.

Submissions should be made through the DEBS 2016 submission site.

Further information about the submissions can be found on the web page with submission information.

Submission deadlines and other important dates can be found here.

Questions about tutorial submissions can be sent to the DEBS 2016 tutorial chairs, Gianpaolo Cugola and Buğra Gedik, at
