The Event Processing Technical Society (EPTS) is being formed as an official society with an official status. The fourth Event Processing Workshop was held under EPTS sponsorship in Stamford CT. September 17-19 2008, following, and co-located with, the Gartner Event Processing Conference. Here is an excerpt from the workshop introduction:
“The attendance was high (even with some overflow on the designated slots due to demand), with participants from vendors, academic, customers, analysts, and independent consultants. The presentations are available to registered users in the Downloads section of this website .
The program included four keynote addresses:
- A Venture Capitalist’s perspective on Event Processing
- The perspective of the value of Event Processing to a customer
- From the perspective of research directions
- From the perspective of Standards
The symposium contained a review and assessment of the event processing discipline from all aspects – where it is now, and where it is going, and encouraged discussions in various topics, which took the form of panels and discussions among the participants. It was a great opportunity to network and engage in competition.
