Middleware 2010
ACM/IFIP/USENIX 11th International Middleware Conference

November 29 - December 3, 2010, Bangalore, India

The Middleware conference is a forum for the discussion of important
innovations and recent advances in the design, implementation, deployment,
and usage of middleware. Middleware is a distributed-systems software that
resides between a rich variety of applications on the one hand, and the
underlying architecture on the other hand which may consist of the OS,
hardware, and network stacks or even databases, storage and different cloud
services. The goals of middleware include providing abstractions,
programmability, performance, scalability, security, and a variety of
essential features. This is a rapidly evolving and growing field.

Following the success of past conferences in this series, the 11th
International Middleware Conference will be the premier event for middleware
research and technology in 2010. The scope of the conference is the design,
implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed system platforms
and architectures for current and future computing, storage, and
communication environments. Highlights of the conference will include a high
quality technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, poster and
demo presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.

Submissions on a diversity of topics are sought, particularly those
identifying new research directions. The topics of the conference include,
but are not limited to:
Middleware platforms:
* Middleware for emerging cloud computing, datacenters, and server farms
* Middleware for traditional clusters and Grid computing
* Middleware for data-intensive computing
* Middleware for mobile devices, ubiquitous and mobile computing
* Middleware for sensor and embedded systems
* Middleware for Web services and Web-service composition
* Event-based, publish/subscribe, and message-oriented middleware
* Middleware for system management and monitoring
* Middleware for next generation telecommunication platforms
* Internet-based communication protocols and data transfer middleware
* Middleware support for multimedia and tele-immersion
* Middleware supporting service-oriented architectures
* Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective middleware approaches
* Semantic middleware
* Middleware solutions for distributed databases
* Peer-to-peer middleware solutions
* Novel middleware solutions for industry frameworks
Systems issues for Middleware:
* Reliability and fault-tolerance
* Scalability and performance
* Energy- and power-aware techniques
* Virtualization, auto-scaling, provisioning, and scheduling
* Security and Information assurance
* Storage and file systems
* Parallelized execution and techniques
* Dynamic configuration and self- or autonomic- management of middleware
* Real-time solutions and quality of service
* Evaluation and deployment: challenges, techniques and lessons
Design principles and tools:
* Programming frameworks, parallel programming and design methodologies for
* Empirical and deployment studies for middleware solutions
* Debugging and distributed debugging of middleware
* Probabilistic Techniques and approaches for middleware
* Methodologies and tools for middleware design, implementation,
verification, and evaluation
* Formal methods, verification and software engineering for middleware
* Old Wine: Revisiting classical middleware paradigms, e.g., object models,
aspect orientation, etc.
Industry Papers
The conference strongly encourages submission of industry-focused papers and
use case studies; full papers should be submitted to the main program, where
they will be reviewed using appropriate criteria (e.g. emphasizing
experience and system evolution), and accepted papers will be published in
the main conference proceedings. Additionally, short industry-focused papers
(10 pages, Springer LNCS style) may be submitted to a special industrial
track; accepted short papers will be presented at the conference and
published in the ACM Digital Library. Note that submissions to the main
program may indicate a willingness to be referred to the Industrial Track if
a paper is not accepted to the main program.

Big Ideas Papers
This year, we particularly encourage "big ideas papers"; that is papers that
have the potential for opening up new research directions. For such papers,
the potential to motivate new research is more important than full
experimental evaluation, though some preliminary evidence of the
effectiveness of the approach or idea is important. Authors should indicate
in the introduction that their paper is a vision of a big idea, rather than
more mature work. Such papers should clearly indicate why the idea is
revolutionary and not evolutionary; what the major questions still to be
answered are; and possible avenues of attack for the community to pursue
towards the development of the idea.
