Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP

18th ACM/IFIP/USENIX International Middleware Conference
Las Vegas, Nevada
Dec 11-15, 2017

The annual ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware conference is a major forum for the
discussion of innovations and recent advances in the design, construction
and use of middleware systems. Following the success of past conferences in
this series, the 18th International Middleware Conference will be the
premier event for middleware research, technology and experimentation in
2017. Highlights of the conference will include a high quality single-track
technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, panel discussions
involving academic and industry leaders, poster and demonstration
presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.



The scope of the Middleware conference is the design, implementation,
deployment, and evaluation of distributed system platforms and
architectures for computing, storage, and communication environments.
Detailed information on topics is available from the URLs above. Submitted
research papers must have at most 12 pages of technical content, including
text, figures, and appendices, but excluding any number of additional pages
for bibliographic references. Note that submissions must be double-blind:
authors' names must not appear, and authors must make a good faith attempt
to anonymize their submissions.

Important Dates:
Abstract submission - May 12, 2017
Paper submission - May 19, 2017
Notification of acceptance - Aug 23, 2017
Camera-ready paper due - Sept 15, 2017



The Industrial Track of the Middleware 2017 Conference solicits 6-page
papers for presentation during the main conference (single track) and
inclusion in the ACM Digital Library. The topics of interest are similar to
those in the call for research papers. However, the purpose of the
Industrial Track is to emphasize the practical issues, observations, and
measurements of "real-world" systems and applications and to disseminate
information of particular interest to Middleware researchers, architects,
developers and administrators.

Important Dates:
Abstract submission - August 11, 2017
Paper submission - August 18, 2017
Notification of acceptance - September 30, 2017
Camera-ready paper due - October 27, 2017



We invite experts on related research areas to submit one-day or half-day
workshop proposals within the scope of Middleware 2017. Proposed workshops
can be on any topic related to middleware, but we are particularly
interested in new workshops in emerging areas.

Important Dates:
Workshop Proposal Submission Deadline  - May 17, 2017
Workshop Proposal Acceptance Notification -            May 24, 2017
Workshop Calls for Papers Online - June 15, 2017
Approximate Workshop Paper Submission Deadline - August 31, 2017
Workshop Paper Notification - September 28, 2017
Workshop Paper Camera Ready (Hard Deadline) - October 20, 2017



The Middleware conference traditionally includes tutorials given by
renowned scientists and practitioners in their fields. We welcome tutorials
on both mature and emerging topics. Tutorials may be lectures, interactive
workshops, hands-on training, or any combination of the above. We
especially welcome cross-disciplinary topics and innovative ways of
interacting with the audience.

Important Dates:
Tutorial Proposals Deadline -           June 15, 2017
Notification of Acceptance/Rejection - July 15, 2017
