Call For Industrial Track Papers

The Industrial Track of the Middleware 2012 Conference solicits papers for
presentation at the
conference and inclusion in the ACM Digital Library.
The topics of interest are similar to those in the general conference call
for papers.
However, the purpose of the Industrial Track is to emphasize practical
experience and to disseminate
information of particular interest to developers and others involved in
real-world systems.

Please visit the web page for further information:

Key deadlines for Industry Track (dates for other tracks will differ)

August 17 - Submission Deadline
September 19 - Acceptance Notification
October 8 - Final Version Due
Industrial Track Co-Chairs:

Mike Spreitzer, IBM Research, USA (mspreitz at us.ibm.com)
Jan de Meer, SmartSpaceLab, Germany (demeer at t-online.de)

Call for Demonstrations and Posters

New this year Middleware will provide a forum for live software
demonstrations of middleware applications,
systems, tools, etc… Demos could take many 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 technology.

As in previous years, 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.
Demo or poster contributions are solicited in all areas of middleware
research and applications.
Demos or posters related to work accepted at one of the paper tracks are
also encouraged.
