As I said all I had to say about the EDA vs. CEP issue, and does not wish again to get inside discussion of "what is CEP", I'll write today about some conferences in the event processing area. In the top of this page I've put the logo of DEBS 2009 which became the flagship research conference of the event processing community. The conference that has become ACM conference will include, like last year, industrial track that will contain - experience reports, architectures, interesting applications, and anything else of interest from the industrial perspective. We'll also try to solicit intermediate reports of the EPTS work-groups. Follow the call for papers in the conference website.
Another conference that announced extension in submission : the AAAI symposium on intelligent event processing - submission extended to November 13th.
