Name: Event Streaming Open Network


Event-based approaches are popular for low-latency software communication needs. There is a plethora of vendor-specific solutions that companies adopt according to different characteristics of their use cases. However, there is not a clear common approach for events interchange over the Internet.

The objective of this BOF is to first discuss about the challenges of communicating event-driven systems over the Internet. Secondly, to describe an embryonic network architecture and protocol for this purpose based on the work "Event Streaming Open Network" (Spinella, 2022).
