CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS: Event-based Systems, Publish/Subscribe and Message Filtering

[apologies for cross-postings]

Proposal Submission Deadline: 10 May 2008

Handbook of Research on Advanced Distributed Event-Based Systems,
Publish/Subscribe and Message Filtering Technologies

A book edited by Annika Hinze and Alejandro Buchmann

The event-based paradigm is a burgeoning technology that receives
attention in research as well as in industry. Event-based interaction is
the key paradigm used in monitoring and (re)active applications, also
called push-based or publish/subscribe systems. The information is
actively delivered to the user once it is available without the user
having to repeatedly ask for it. A wide variety of applications benefit
from the event-based paradigm that is found in fields ranging from
sensor networks and stream processing to business monitoring, logistics,
health care, and ubiquitous computing.

Objective of the Book
This book aims to showcase event-based systems in real-world
applications; it provides a multi-disciplinary approach, an overview of
relevant terminology, and content that is approachable for readers from
a variety of backgrounds. We explicitly call for chapters that present
and explore event-based techniques in an application context.

Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be professionals, researchers and
students - consumers and designers of event-based systems. The book is
designed to be an explorer, interpreter and multi-disciplinary mediator.
It aims to present concepts and application examples from the various
communities and areas developing and applying techniques of the
event-based paradigm. The book targets areas with domain-specific topics
of event-based computing. It additionally aims to present areas with
enterprise-related topics.
Event-based applications and techniques are being developed in different
domains and by communities with diverse concepts and foundations. The
book’s collection of concepts and applications will present the richness
of existing event-based concepts and applications from a wide basis of

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
     - Distributed systems
     - Pervasive and ubiquitous computing
     - Coordination

         o Web services notifications

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before May
10th a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the scope of the
proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by June
10th about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines.
Full chapters are expected to be submitted by September 1st (firm
deadline). All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind
review basis.
The book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group
Inc.),, publisher of the Information Science
Reference (formerly Idea Group Reference), and Medical Information
Science Reference imprints.
