Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Benchmarking and performance evaluation
  • Crowd sourcing
  • Data models, semantics, query languages
  • Data provenance
  • Data visualization
  • Data warehousing, OLAP, SQL Analytics
  • Database monitoring and tuning
  • Database security, privacy, access control
  • Database usability
  • Databases for emerging hardware
  • Distributed and parallel databases
  • Graph data management, RDF, social networks
  • Information extraction
  • Information retrieval and text mining
  • Knowledge discovery, clustering, data mining
  • Query processing and optimization

  • Scientific databases
  • Semi-structured data
  • Spatio-temporal databases
  • Storage, indexing, and physical database design
  • Streams, sensor networks, complex event processing
  • Transaction processing
  • Uncertain, probabilistic, and approximate databases


All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically. Submissions must adhere to the paper formatting instructions. Research papers will be judged for quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Author names and affiliations must not appear in the papers, and bibliographic references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity. Submissions should be uploaded at:

 DEBS 2018

12th ACM Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems

DEBS 2018 will take place at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand.

The ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event?based Systems (DEBS) has become the premier venue for contributions in the fields of distributed and event?based systems. The objectives of the ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event?Based Systems (DEBS) are to provide a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting of experiences relevant to distributed systems and event?based computing. The conference aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas through industry papers and demo papers.
