Complex event processing emerged as a computational paradigm to detect patterns in event streams based on the continuous evaluation of event queries. Once such queries are evaluated in a network of event sources, efficient query evaluation may be achieved through the distributed evaluation of queries.

In this talk, we present some of our recent results on achieving such distribution with graph-based evaluation plans as well as optimizations that rely on push-pull-communication.

Bio: Matthias Weidlich is a full professor at the Department of Computer Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin), Germany, where he holds the Chair on Databases and Information Systems. Before joining HU Berlin, he held positions at Imperial College London and at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

He has a PhD in Computer Science from the Hasso-Plattner-Institute, University of Potsdam.
