The goal of this EPTS contest is to highlight research contributions significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in event processing.
To qualify for the competition, research contributions (like conference or journal articles, doctoral theses, books) should have been published in the past 5 years, or accepted for publication in the last 12 months. Submissions by the (co-)authors of the research contribution are welcome.
The nominations will be judged based on: scientific and technical soundness, relevance to event processing, originality, and expected or already achieved impact on event processing.

Innovative Event Processing Application Case Study Contest. This contest, co-sponsored by the OMG’s Event Processing CoP, is open to organizations of all sizes, including government agencies, which have delivered, or are developing, an innovative event processing application.
The goal of the contest is to highlight applications showing significant and innovative use of event processing. To qualify for the competition, the nominated application should have been developed in the past 5 years.
Entries will be judged on the innovative use and potential or realized value from this application. Evaluation committee members are: Alex Alves (Oracle), Francois Bry (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich), Mani Chandy (California Institute of Technology), Opher Etzion (IBM), Brenda Michelson (Elemental Links), Themis Palpanas (Trento University)
