Middleware 2012 - Call for Workshop Proposals

The Middleware conference 
(http://middleware2012.cs.mcgill.ca/doku.php?id=workshops) traditionally 
includes a number of high quality workshops, which are co-hosted with 
the conference. To continue this tradition, Middleware 2012 is 
soliciting proposals for 1-day workshops. Proposed workshops can be on 
any topic related to middleware, but we are particularly seeking new 
workshops in emerging, new middleware areas.

The Middleware conference is a forum for the discussion of innovations 
and recent advances in the design, implementation, deployment, and usage 
of middleware systems. Middleware is the software that resides between 
applications and the underlying architecture. The goal of middleware is 
to facilitate the development of applications by providing higher-level 
abstractions for better programmability, performance, scalability, 
security, and a variety of essential features. It is a rapidly evolving 
and growing field.

The deadline for workshop proposals is:

      *May 14, 2012 - Workshop proposal submission deadline*

A workshop proposal (not exceeding three pages, 11pt, in PDF format) 
should include the following information:

      The title of the workshop
      A brief technical description of the workshop topic area
      A short description of the intended length (full/half day) and
      format of the workshop
      A brief statement of the relevance of the workshop to Middleware
      The names and e-mail addresses of the organizing committee
      A preliminary list of PC members that have accepted to participate
      in the committee
      A description of the organizers' strategy for attracting
      submissions and attendees to the workshop, including information
      about how publicity will be carried to attract world-wide

Each workshop will organize their own publicity, submissions, and 
refereeing procedures and will provide their own web page. A link will 
be provided to this web page from the Middleware 2012 Web site. The 
workshop organizers will have to apply the schedule outlined below. The 
organizers of the workshop will ensure that all accepted papers are peer 
reviewed. Accepted papers should be no longer than 6 pages in the 
standard ACM format. Notice that workshop organizers are responsible for 
preparing the papers for their workshops in the format required by ACM. 
As in previous years, the Middleware conference organizers will provide 
companion proceedings including all workshop papers, which will be 
available in the ACM Digital Library. Camera-ready papers will be 
required by October 5th 2012.

The conference organizers aim for a common timeline for all workshops, 
which is presented below.


      *May 14 - Workshop proposal submission due date*
      *May 21 - Workshop proposal acceptance notification*
      *May 29 - Call for Workshop papers available online*
      *August 15 - Workshop paper submission due date*
