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.

Prospective contributors are invited to submit research papers at the 
dedicated submission area:http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cep08.

Papers should be prepared using the LNCS style. Long papers should be at 
most ten pages; short papers at most four pages. Proceedings will be 
published for the workshop as part of the CEUR Workshop Proceedings.
