Middleware Tools, Services and Runtime Support for Networked Embedded Systems (MidSens’11)

Co-located with Middleware 2011

The aim of MidSens’11 is to stimulate research in the specific domain of middleware for networked embedded systems. This year’s focus is on sensor networks and robotics control – a broader focus than the previous editions – since we believe that the extended scope will result in complementary and synergetic submissions from researchers working in both niches. Along with the ‘core’ topic of middleware architectures, services and tool support, MidSens’11 will also seek quality papers describing novel programming languages, run-time support and relevant experience reports. As with previous editions of this workshop, MidSens’11 will investigate how middleware support can relieve developers from low-level, platform specific concerns, while enabling optimal exploitation of available resources.

The workshop seeks papers in, but not limited to, the areas listed below:
	• Middleware Tools and Architectures:
		• Architectures for networked embedded systems.
		• Novel programming abstractions.
		• Lightweight agent middleware for embedded systems.
		• Testing and simulation tools.
		• Fault identification, diagnosis and repair.
	• Middleware services:
		• Location tracking, localization, and synchronization.
		• Support for real-time and safety-critical systems.
		• Data management, aggregation and filtering.
		• Energy-aware middleware mechanisms.
		• Fault tolerance, reliability and quality of service.
		• Privacy and security services.
		• Virtualization, sharing and trading of resources.
	• Run-time Support:
		• Overlay and topology creation, maintenance and management.
		• Resource/Service discovery and management.
		• Support for reconfiguration and adaptation.
		• Effective naming and addressing schemes.
		• Support for modeling and enacting safe software reconfiguration.
	• Management and Experiences:
		• Managing heterogeneity and network dynamism.
		• Integration of embedded systems with web services.
		• Experience and evaluation of middleware platforms.
		• Support for the unification of various networked embedded platforms.
		• Shared infrastructure embedded systems.
