“The second Dagstuhl seminar on event processing took place in May 2010. This five-day meeting was oriented to work toward a comprehensive document that would explain event processing and how it relates to other technologies and suggest future work in terms of standards, challenges, and shorter-term research projects.
The 45 participants came from academia and industry, some of them out of the event processing field. The teams continued the work after the conference and have summarized their findings in this document. The chapters were written by different teams and then edited for consistency. “
“Very rarely do stories of women and technology vary in tone from the gender gap theme. Where are the women?
