Preliminary CFP

The annual ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware conference is a major forum for the discussion of innovations and recent advances in the design, construction and use of middleware systems. The scope of the conference is the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed system platforms and architectures for computing, storage, and communication environments. Highlights of the conference will include a high quality single-track technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, panel discussions involving academic and industry leaders, poster and demonstration presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.

Topics: Original submissions of research papers on a diversity of topics are sought, particularly those identifying new research directions. The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

Platforms and Usage Models of Middleware for:

* Emerging cloud computing platforms, 5G

* Data-intensive computing (Big Data) and data analytics

* Mobile devices and services

* Ubiquitous and pervasive computing

* Internet applications and multimedia

* Internet of Things, Cyber Physical Systems, smart cities

* Network function virtualization

Systems Issues for Middleware

* Reliability and fault tolerance

* Consistency, availability, and replication

* Energy- and power-aware techniques

* Virtualization, auto-scaling, provisioning, and scheduling

* Real-time solutions and quality of service

* Scalability and performance

* Security and privacy

Design Principles and Programming Support

* Event-based, publish/subscribe, and peer-to-peer solutions

* Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective approaches

* Novel programming abstractions and paradigms for middleware

* Methodologies and tools for middleware design, implementation, verification, and evaluation

* Retrospective reviews of middleware paradigms, e.g., object models, aspect orientation, etc.
