CALL-FOR-PAPERS:

The aim of MidSens is to stimulate novel research in middleware for sensor networks. The particular focus of MidSens'12 is
the realization of multi-user, multi-purpose and federated sensing platforms that are capable of supporting next-generation
application scenarios such as smart cities. Along with the core topic of middleware architectures, services and tool support,
MidSens'12 will also seek papers describing novel programming languages, run-time support and experience reports.
The MidSens series has built a strong reputation for friendly and vibrant discussion and, through its affiliation with the world's
most influential middleware conference, enjoys attendance from some of the leading figures in international middleware research.

TOPICS:

-Supporting Next-Generation Sensor Networks:
|----- Architectures for multi-user and multi-purpose sensor networks.
|----- Novel abstractions for federation and integration of large-scale sensor networks and their services.
|----- Middleware to integrate heterogeneous sensing devices and fuse their capabilities.
|----- Autonomic support enabling viable, efficient large-scale sensor networks.
|----- Testing, simulation and experimental facilities for sensor network systems.
|----- Virtualization, sharing and trading of resources.
|----- Automating fault identification, diagnosis and repair.
-Middleware Services for Sensing:
|----- Location tracking, localization, and synchronization.
|----- Support for real-time and safety-critical systems.
|----- Data management, aggregation and filtering.
|----- Energy-aware middleware mechanisms.
|----- Privacy and security services.
-Run-time Support:
|----- Overlay and topology creation, maintenance and management.
|----- Resource/Service discovery and management.
|----- Support for reconfiguration and adaptation.
|----- Effective naming and addressing schemes.
|----- Support for modeling and enacting safe software reconfiguration.
-Management and Experiences:
|----- Managing heterogeneity and network dynamism.
|----- Integration of embedded systems with web services.
|----- Experience and evaluation of middleware platforms.
|----- Support for the unification of various embedded platforms.
|----- Shared infrastructure embedded systems.
