Call for Demos and Posters:

Following the success of past conferences in this series, the 8th
International Middleware Conference will be the premier event for middleware
research and technology in 2007. The scope of the conference is the design,
implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed system platforms
and architectures for future computing and communication environments.


Posters & Demo contributions are solicited in all areas of middleware
research and Applications. Topics include but are not limited to:

Platforms and Architectures:
* Middleware for Web services and Web-service composition
* Middleware for cluster and grid computing
* Peer-to-peer middleware solutions
* Event-based, publish/subscribe, and message-oriented middleware
* Communication protocols and architectures
* Middleware for ubiquitous and mobile computing
* Middleware for embedded systems and sensor networks
* Service-oriented architectures
* Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective middleware approaches

Systems issues:
* Reliability, fault tolerance, and quality-of-service in general
* Scalability of middleware: replication and caching
* Systems management, including solutions for autonomic and self-managing
* Middleware feedback control solutions for self-regulation
* Real-time solutions for middleware platforms
* Information assurance and security
* Evaluation techniques for middleware solutions
* Middleware support for multimedia streaming
* Middleware solutions for (large scale) distributed databases

Design principles and tools:
* Formal methods and tools for designing, verifying, and evaluating
* Model-driven architectures
* Software engineering for middleware
* Engineering principles and approaches for middleware
* Novel development paradigms, APIs, and languages
* Existing paradigms revisited: object models, aspect orientation, etc.
* On-the-fly management and configuration of middleware

Submissions describing the demonstrators should precisely describe what the
demonstrator will show and how, and place special emphasis on the key
The submissions should also indicate the equipment that will be used for the
demo and any special requirement in terms of space, network access,
projectors, etc.

The poster session will provide an opportunity for conference attendees to
learn about innovative work in progress and to preview late-breaking
research results.


Submissions should be at most 2 pages long, using the ACM proceedings
format. A two-page abstract of accepted posters and demonstrations will appear in the Middleware conference CD-ROM. Submissions should be emailed to mw07posterdemo@ics.uci.edu, mentioning in the title whether Demo or Poster is being submitted.


Submission: 15 June
Notification: 6 July
Camera ready copy: 31 August
