Call For Papers

With the recent advances in network technologies, there has been a growing interest in new network applications such as cloud applications, ubiquitous applications, and sensor applications. The development of these applications is usually not trivial and faces a number of challenges. These challenges are relaxed with the existence of enabling techniques such as advanced middleware services. Middleware technologies had evolved tremendously over the past decade from simple support techniques for applications integration to a field of its own. The latest advances and innovations in middleware research, design and utilization highlighted great expansion of the middleware field.

This symposium is designed to combine the network applications and middleware development communities to discuss and highlight the latest advancements in both network applications and enabling middleware technologies. Original work and contributions in network applications and middleware concepts, design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation are sought.


Topics of interest included, but are not limited to, the following:

Network Applications:

* Network-based automation
* Cloud applications
* Ubiquitous and pervasive applications
* Collaborative applications
* RFID and sensor network applications
* Mobile applications
* Smart home applications
* Infrastructure monitoring and control applications
* Remote health monitoring
* GPS and location-based applications
* Networked vehicles applications
* Alert applications

Middleware Issues:

* Event-based, publish/subscribe, and message-oriented middleware
* Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective middleware approaches
* Middleware solutions for reliability, fault tolerance, and quality-of-service
* Scalability of middleware
* Context-aware middleware
* Autonomic and self-managing middleware
* Evaluation techniques for middleware solutions
* Formal methods and tools for designing, verifying, and evaluating middleware
* Software engineering techniques for middleware
* Service oriented middleware
* Agent-based middleware
* Security middleware

Domain-Specific Middleware:

* Middleware for web services
* RFID and sensor networks middleware
* Middleware for cluster, grid, and cloud computing
* Middleware for ubiquitous and mobile computing
* Middleware solutions for large scale distributed databases
* Middleware for robotics
* Middleware for WiMax and Mesh Networks
* Smart homes middleware
* Vehicular systems middleware

Paper Submission:

Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or journal. Your submission should include the author names, complete mailing addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and the email addresses of the authors. Interested authors should submit a maximum of 6 pages of their original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the IEEEPaperTemplateModifiedForITNG.doc. Please submit your paper via the Web-based system at:

Evaluation Process:

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. All papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society and available on the IEEE digital library.
