COMPSAC is a major international forum for researchers, practitioners, managers, and policy makers interested in computer software and applications.


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 in distributed computing, peer-to-peer computing, service oriented computing, sensor networks, grid computing, agent based computing and smart devices poses its own unique challenges in the design, development and deployment of middleware, its components and applications using such middleware.

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 applications using middleware systems.


The topics include, but are not limited to:

+ Middleware for collaborative applications
+ Middleware for context-aware 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


Authors are invited to submit papers using the automated submission system available from: Submissions must be original, unpublished and not currently under review by workshops, conferences, or journals.

The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for IEEE conference proceedings in 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format, available at : paper should not exceed 6 pages or 4000 words in IEEE paper format including all figures, tables, and references.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the 35th IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2011) by IEEE Computer Society Press, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier's Engineering Information Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of COMPSAC for the paper to be included in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by an author.
