Call details
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm enables the development of new 
kind of services and mass market applications in multiple domains such 
as mobile marketing, social networks, smart cities, health care, and 
business processes.

These applications consume high-level context data computed by 
processing and filtering numerous raw context data collected from the 
physical environment. Those applications are based upon cooperating 
services, which have to be designed and dynamically composed. For 
instance, those services manage heterogeneous context data, distribute 
both processing and flows of data, manage the quality of context for 
appropriate decision-making, enhance privacy of personal context data, 
and identify situations from data coming both from the IoT and from 
knowledge bases.

Providing context-aware applications in the IoT necessitates the 
interaction of numerous heterogeneous services deployed in a multiscale 
complex distributed architecture.

Topics of interest

   -  Middleware to transport and transform data from tiny sensors to 
context-aware applications
   -  Composition and interoperability of IoT services
   -  Distribution of IoT services among mobile devices, sensors and 
computers in the cloud
   -  Complex Event processing for the IoT
   -  Services on the cloud for the IoT
   -  Middleware for context-awareness and location-awareness
   -  Models and middleware to provide IoT services to context-aware 
   -  Testbeds for context-aware applications in the IoT
   -  Semantic web services for the IoT
   -  Discovery and capability matching for the IoT
   -  Privacy and QoC (Quality of Context) aware capabilities for the IoT

The required format for the submission is the ACM SIG Proceedings 
Standard Style.

Papers should describe original research (not submitted or published 
elsewhere) and be not more than six pages in length, including the 
abstract, all figures, tables, and references.

Submitted papers should adhere to the formatting instructions of the ACM 
Standard Style. The author kit containing the templates for the required 
style can be found here: 

Papers must be submitted in PDF format via the submission site: 

All accepted papers will appear in a Middleware 2014 companion 
proceedings, which will be available in the ACM Digital Library.

Quality papers may be invited for publication for an extended version in 
a special issue of the Annals of Telecoms (Springer) "Middleware for 
Internet distribution in the context of cloud computing and the Internet 
of Things".
