COMPSAC is a major international forum for researchers, practitioners, managers, and policy makers interested in computer software and applications.
MIDDLEWARE ENGINEERING Workshop
Research in middleware systems has evolved from simple client server models to distributed systems, peer-to-peer (P2P) systems, mobile devices, service oriented computing, grid computing, agent based computing, smart devices, and sensors. Each of the above areas poses its own unique challenges in the design, development and deployment of middleware, its components and applications using such middleware.
The main objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in middleware systems with topics ranging from different areas such as distributed computing, grid computing, service oriented computing, pervasive computing, P2P computing, agent based systems and sensor networks under one roof with an aim of encouraging exchange of ideas and experiences among these diverse communities. We solicit papers dealing with design, development and deployment of middleware and its systems. We are also interested in specific components of middleware systems, the way they interact with other modules, components design and development, models of the components, middleware system issues and also novel computational sciences applications using middleware systems.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The topics include, but are not limited to:
+ Middleware for collaborative applications Middleware for agent based
+ systems Middleware for service oriented systems Middleware for mobile
+ and ubiquitous computing Middleware for computational sciences
+ applications Middleware for high performance computing applications
+ Middleware for embedded systems and sensor networks Middleware
+ solutions for Security, Privacy and Trust Middleware for distributed
+ systems including databases, P2P, and grid based systems Middleware
+ issues for real time systems Software engineering techniques for
+ middleware Novel applications using middleware Evaluation metrics and
+ bench mark systems for middleware Specific components of middleware
+ such as : device discovery, directory service, execution service,
+ listening service, communication service, and data access service
