Briefing a USA federal committee

In this picture you can see me and a tiger during my family vacation in Thailand, in 2007.
Today I met another TIGER - the standing committee for Technology Insight-Gauge, Evaluate & Review which is a committee of the USA National Academics that works on behalf of the USA intelligence community. 

I am still unsure how they picked me up, but they invited me to participate in a meeting with the committee members and some other participants through video conference and brief them on the state of the practice, my vision for event processing in 2020, and the challenges on the way to get there.  This is an indication that event processing has caught the attention of  defense sector as well.    The vision part talked about the Event Fabric devised as the grand challenge in the Dagstuhl event processing seminar,  published as chapter 5 in the event processing manifesto (BTW - in DEBS 2011 there will be a tutorial about this grand challenge). 
Another topic was of course, the proactive world, my favorite topic.  

I was asked what is the killer application that will drive the 2020 vision, and said there is no single killer application, there are multiple of them, and I see many of them outside the corporate IT domain, such as autonomic robots and computing embedded in biological systems.   Of course, defense applications will also be part of the driving forces.    More on this topics -- later

DEBS 2011 news

The DEBS 2011 track chairs have sent acceptance (and rejection) notes to the authors.  This time there has been substantial growth in the number of submissions, and also seems that there were quite a lot of quality papers, not all of the high quality papers could be accepted.

Some statistics: 

 The research track accepted 23 papers 
 The industry track accepted 10 papers  
 The tutorial track accepted  6 tutorials 

PhD workshop notifications will be made shortly.   Accepted papers co-authored by PhD students qualify the students also the right to participate in the PhD workshop and get feedback in a mentoring atmosphere by some of the leading figures of the area.

Next call is the posters and demos call - open until May 2nd.   This gives a chance to present work in progress, and also provides opportunity to authors of rejected papers to present a poster and interact with the participants on their research.
