SKEL in the Programme Commitee of DEBS 2021

SKEL researcher, Dr. Alexander Artikis was selected as co-chair of the Programme Committee of the 15th ACM Conference in Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) which will take place online, between 28 June and 2 July 2021.

Dr. George Paliouras, Head of SKEL, considers this a strong signal of international recognition for the laboratory and in particular of Alexander’s and the Complex Event Recognition (CER) team’s hard work. Especially taking into account the other co-chair who is MIT’s Nesime Tatbul.

About the Conference

Over the past decade, the ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-Based Systems (DEBS) has become the premier venue for cutting-edge research in the field of event processing and distributed computing, and the integration of distributed and event-based systems in relevant domains such as Big Data, AI/ML, IoT, and Blockchain. The objectives of ACM 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 its tutorials, research papers, and the Grand Challenge.
