The Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) will investigate strongly interacting matter at high net-baryon densities by measuring nucleus-nucleus collisions at the FAIR research centre in Darmstadt, Germany. Its ambitious aim is to measure at very high interaction rates, unprecedented in the field of experimental heavy-ion physics so far. This goal will be reached with fast and radiation-hard detectors, self-triggered read-out electronics and streaming data acquisition without any hardware trigger. Collision events will be reconstructed and selected in real-time exclusively in software. This puts severe requirements to the algorithms for event reconstruction and their implementation. We will discuss some facets of our approaches to event reconstruction in the main tracking device of CBM, the Silicon Tracking System, covering local reconstruction (cluster and hit finding) as well as track finding and event definition.
