EPTS virtual symposium - March 24, 2011

Mark your calanders -- EPTS will hold its next (sixth) event processing symposium as a virtual symposium.
The idea of the virtual symposium is that a large audience will be able to participate through webcast, the symposium will also be recorded, so you'll be able to view the symposium or any part of it,   
The symposium will be co-located with the OMG Technical Meeting in Arlington, VA, USA, some of the speakers will be there in persons and the others will participate from remote.

The agenda was published on the EPTS site.    

The symposium will consist of three general themes:

  1. Follow-up to the Dagstuhl seminar.    The concluding document ("event processing manifesto") in its final version will be published around the end of February, and the different teams will present their conclusions.
  2. Discussion of event processing related standards:  this has been one of the manifesto chapters and there will also be presentation of Jim Odell about ideas within OMG around standards.
  3. Report on several EPTS working groups activities

The EPTS business meeting and awards will be held in conjunction with DEBS 2011 in July.
