CFP: Complex Event Processing for Future the Internet (iCEP-FIS 2008)

1st International Workshop on Complex Event Processing for Future the Internet (iCEP-FIS 2008)
in conjunction with Future Internet Symposium
September 28-30, 2008
Vienna, Austria


One of main goals of the Future Internet is to dynamically and proactively support the operations of businesses organisations and the everyday life of citizens and in a seamless and natural fashion. It would require the transition from a passive system in which users initiate activities (like Internet is now), to an active environment in which associated software agents find, organize and display information/services on behalf of users. In the nutshell of this process is the ability of a Future Internet system (i.e., an agent or a service) to sense and respond on the billions of signals (events) coming from different sources in different forms.

The realisation of the reactive nature of the Future Internet requires new models, methods and tools for the efficient event processing: their representation, acquisition, aggregation and consumption. Especially important is the processing of events on a higher abstraction level, by combining them in a specific context: time, space, semantics  so called complex event processing (CEP). It includes finding and defining event patterns from the low level events, aggregating and correlating events to build business level events.

In order to tackle afore mentioned challenges in Future Internet Event Processing we strive to have a diverse academic audience, varying from young researchers working on PhD level to experts in the field. The workshop aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research.


iCEP-FIS 2008 aims to address the following topics (although is not limited to):

1. Event Modeling
Languages and Methodologies for Event Processing in Future Internet (FI);
Formal modeling of complex events, contexts and complex activities;
Database and AI techniques for Event Processing;
Editors for Complex Events;
Semantic patterns for complex events;

2. Reasoning and Event Processing
Scalable algorithms for complex event detection;
Reasoning under real-time constraints;
Reasoning about uncertain events;
Reasoning about similar events;

3. Web 2.0 and Event Processing
Event processing in social networks;
Event processing in collaboration technologies;
Event processing and attention management (e.g. RSS)

4. SOA and EDA
Enhancing Service Oriented Architecture with Event-driven Computation;
Event processing for Semantic Web Service monitoring, diagnosing, re-enactment, post-execution analysis, etc.

5. Infrastructures for Event Processing
Semantic description and annotation for events and event sources;
Semantic event filtering (generating events out of large scale,
unreliable and noisy sensor data);
Large-scale and open semantic infrastructures for event-driven networks;
Complex Event Processing in P2P;
Notification mechanisms for Event Processing.

Application papers which clearly show benefits of event processing in practical settings of Internet applications are welcome.
