Conference Call for Papers


The annual ACM/IFIP Middleware conference is a major forum for the discussion of innovations and recent scientific advances of middleware systems with a focus on the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed systems, platforms and architectures for computing, storage, and communication. 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, tutorials and workshops.


Paper Submission Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Notification Friday, August 28, 2020

Camera Ready Deadline Friday, September 18, 2020

All deadlines are 23:59 AOE.


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

Cloud and data centers

Virtualization, auto-scaling, provisioning, and scheduling

Data-intensive computing (big data) and data analytics

Stream Processing

Machine learning

Mobile and pervasive systems and services

Internet-of-Things, smart cities

Fog, Edge computing

Cyber-physical and Real-time systems

Energy and power-aware techniques

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

Networking, network function virtualization, software-defined networking

Multimedia Systems

Fault tolerance and Consistency


Security and privacy

Monitoring, resource management and analysis

Middleware Design principles

Programming abstractions and paradigms for middleware

Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective approaches

Reviews of middleware paradigms, e.g., object models, aspect orientation, etc.

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

Original papers of three types are sought:

Research Papers: These papers report original research on the above topics, and will be evaluated on significance of the problem, novelty of the solution, advancement beyond prior work, sufficient supporting evidence and clarity of the presentation.

Experimentation and Deployment Papers: These papers describe complete systems, platforms, and/or comprehensive experimental evaluations of alternative designs and solutions to well-known problems. The emphasis during the evaluation of these papers will be less on the novelty and more on the demonstrated usefulness and potential impact of the contributions, the extensive experimentation involved, and the quality and weight of the lessons learned.

Big Ideas Papers: These are 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.
