The annual ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware Conference is a premier forum for
the discussion of innovations and recent advances in the design, implementation,
experimentation, deployment, and usage of middleware systems. Middleware 2012
will be the premier event for middleware research, technology and experimentation
in 2012. The scope of the conference is the design, implementation, deployment,
and evaluation of system platforms and architectures for current and future
computing, storage, and communication environments. This year submissions
will be accepted in 3 tracks.

Submissions of original research papers are sought on a diversity of topics:
- Middleware platforms for: Emerging cloud computing, datacenters,
server farms, traditional clusters, grid computing, mobile computing,
sensor networks, embedded systems, Internet applications, social networks,
social computing, and crowdsourcing, Web Services, SOA, data-intensive
computing, storage systems, files systems.
- Systems issues: Fault-tolerance, scalability, concurrency, performance,
power-awareness, virtualization, scheduling, security, privacy, parallelization,
reconfiguration, real-time.
- Design principles and tools: Programming frameworks, parallel programming,
design methodologies for middleware, empirical and deployment studies,
debugging, diagnosis, visualization, verification, formal methods.

This track is for highly practical papers that discuss either:
- Commercial, real-world, middleware systems and applications presenting
solutions to current, significant problems or
- Academic efforts on the design, development, deployment, and experiences
with a middleware system.
These papers may describe the lessons learned, including negative and positive
experiences, appropriateness of alternative designs, benchmarks of
tools/systems/platforms, or rigorous evaluations. Evaluation will be based
on overall significance and secondarily on novelty.

We seek big-ideas papers, with the potential to extend horizons. The value
of the new idea or research direction will be deemed more important than
comprehensive experimental evaluation, although some preliminary evidence
of effectiveness is expected.
