October 10, 2014 - Notification of Acceptance
December 8-12, 2014 - Conference

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.

Demo & Posters

Middleware 2014 will provide a forum for live software demonstrations of
middleware applications, systems, and tools. Demos could take a wide and
open-ended variety of forms. Typical examples include: (i) presentation of
an application which leverages advanced middleware concepts, (ii) working
through coding of an example on a novel middleware platform, or (iii)
real-time visualizations of middleware system metrics under simulated
workloads. Although the form may vary, demo presenters should take
advantage of not being constrained by the format of a traditional slide
presentation. Demos are encouraged for both early prototypes and mature

Posters will provide an opportunity for conference attendees to learn about
innovative work in progress and to preview late-breaking research results.
Poster sessions will provide an informal setting for presenters to
communicate ideas or results and also to collect feedback from attendees.
Free poster printing services will be available for the authors of accepted

Demo or poster contributions are solicited in all areas of middleware
research and applications. The best demos and posters will be invited to
give a 3-minutes oral presentation during one of the plenary sessions. For
a list of applicable topics, please consider those from the call for

Submission Details

Live demos

Submissions describing live demos should be at most 2 pages PDF using the
ACM proceedings format. The submission should include:
• a description of the problems addressed,
• research and technical approach,
• a “scripted timeline” that describes what the audience will see during
the demo including one or more screenshots,
• related work with bibliography.

For the purpose of submission, assume a 20 minute demo (actual allocated
demo time is to be determined). For added flexibility to make it more
accessible to attendees, we also strongly encourage the author of an
accepted live demo to provide a 5 minute video.


Submissions describing posters should be at most 2 pages PDF using the ACM
proceedings format. The submission should include:
• a description of the problems addressed
• research and technical approach
• any preliminary results
• related work with bibliography

Deadline for submissions of both Demo and Poster papers is September 19th.

Please use our EasyChair page for submission:
