                   MNA 2010  CALL FOR PAPERS

  International Symposium on Middleware and Network Applications 

                         Part of ITNG 2010
             April 12-14, 2010, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

      Proceedings to be published by the IEEE Computer Society

Authors of selected presented papers will be invited to submit extended
versions of their papers to a special issue of Journal of Software.

             ** Submission Deadline Extended to Nov. 6 **  


With the recent advances in network technologies, there has been a growing
interest in new network applications such as cloud applications, ubiquitous
applications, and sensor applications. The development of these applications
is usually not trivial and faces a number of challenges. These challenges
are relaxed with the existence of enabling techniques such as advanced
middleware services. Middleware technologies had evolved tremendously over
the past decade from simple support techniques for applications integration
to a field of its own. The latest advances and innovations in middleware
research, design and utilization highlighted great expansion of the
middleware field. 

This symposium is designed to combine the network applications and
middleware development communities to discuss and highlight the latest
advancements in both network applications and enabling middleware
technologies. Original work and contributions in network applications and
middleware concepts, design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation are

Topics of interest included, but are not limited to, the following:

- Network-based automation 
- Cloud applications 
- Ubiquitous and pervasive applications  
- Collaborative applications 
- RFID and sensor network applications 
- Mobile applications 
- Smart home applications 
- Infrastructure monitoring and control applications 
- Remote health monitoring 
- GPS and location-based applications 
- Networked vehicles applications 
- Alert applications 
Middleware Issues:
- Event-based, publish/subscribe, and message-oriented middleware 
- Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective middleware approaches 
- Middleware solutions for reliability, fault tolerance, and
- Scalability of middleware 
- Context-aware middleware 
- Autonomic and self-managing middleware 
- Evaluation techniques for middleware solutions 
- Formal methods and tools for designing, verifying, and evaluating
- Software engineering techniques for middleware 
- Service oriented middleware 
- Agent-based middleware 
- Security middleware  
Domain-Specific Middleware:
- Middleware for web services 
- RFID and sensor networks middleware 
- Middleware for cluster, grid, and cloud computing 
- Middleware for ubiquitous and mobile computing 
- Middleware solutions for large scale distributed databases 
- Middleware for robotics 
- Middleware for WiMax and Mesh Networks 
- Smart homes middleware 
- Vehicular systems middleware 

Paper Submission:
Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished work, not
currently under review by another conference, workshop, or journal. Your
submission should include the author names, complete mailing addresses,
telephone and fax numbers, and the email addresses of the authors.
Interested authors should submit a maximum of 6 pages of their original and
unpublished work including 5 keywords in the
IEEEPaperTemplateModifiedForITNG.doc. Please submit your paper via the

Evaluation Process:
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and
soundness. All papers will be reviewed by at least two independent
reviewers. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society and available on the IEEE digital
