The new tracks in DEBS 2011 are:
- DEBS challenge: this will consist of an event processing application with a call for demonstration of its implementation in various approaches; this is targeted to commercial and non commercial implementations, the non commercial implementations will be able to participate in a competition where the major criterion will be ease of use.
- Gong show: participants will have 5 minutes to present new ideas - both research idea, and interesting kind of usage in event-based systems and technologies. The audience will vote the best idea.
- The industrial track will have an "experience reports" sub-track, that will not require submission of papers, but abstracts only.
