ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware 2018 Conference - Joint Call for Papers 
[ http://2018.middleware-conference.org/ | http://2018.middleware-conference.org ] 
Rennes, France; D ec 10 - 14, 2018 

The annual ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware conference is a major forum for the discussion of innovations and recent scientific advances of middleware systems with a focus on the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed systems, platforms and architectures for computing, storage, and communication. There are many ways to participate in this conference, as summarized below. 

Conference Highlights: 

    * High-quality single-track technical program 
    * Industry track 
    * Two keynote speakers 
    * Best paper award presentation 
    * Tutorials and workshops 
    * Posters and demos sessions 
    * Doctoral symposium 


Call For Regular Papers 

Original submissions of research papers on a diversity of topics are sought, particularly those identifying new research directions. Submitted 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. Submitted papers must adhere to the formatting instructions of the ACM style, which can found on the submission page. The Middleware 2018 conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library. 

Deadline for abstract submission: May 11 , 2018 
Deadline for paper submission: May 18 , 2018

Call for Industry Track Papers 

The Industrial Track of the Middleware 2018 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 general conference call for 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. 

Deadline for paper submission: August 18, 2018

Call for Workshop Proposal 

The Middleware conference traditionally includes a number of high quality workshops. We invite experts on related research subjects to submit one-day or half-day workshop proposals in scope of Middleware 2018. Proposed workshops can be on any topic related to middleware, but we are particularly interested in new workshops in emerging, new middleware areas. 

Deadline for workshop proposal submission: May 23, 2018

Call for Tutorials Proposal 

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. 

Deadline for tutorial proposal: June 15, 2018

Call for Doctoral Symposium Papers 

Following the tradition of past editions, the symposium provides an international forum that gives PhD students an opportunity to present and discuss their research with their peers and with a panel of expert mentors from the middleware field. The symposium is open to PhD students at any stage of their studies. As part of the symposium, the participating students will receive valuable feedback from senior researchers and experts from both industry and academia. The symposium will also be an opportunity for meeting and sharing experiences with other PhD students who are addressing similar topics or are at a similar stage in their doctoral work. All PhD students carrying out research on middleware topics are invited to submit a position paper to the doctoral symposium. Papers will be peer-reviewed by the symposium’s committee of selected mentors. The criteria for accepting papers includes the extent of the contribution of the work to the field, the originality of the problem, and the overall quality of the position paper. Position papers should fit within the topics of Middleware 2018 Call for Papers. Accepted position papers will be presented during the doctoral symposium, as well as in a poster session during the main program of Middleware 2018. Contributions to the Middleware 2018 PhD Workshop will appear in a proceedings that supplements the main conference proceedings. 

Deadline for paper submission: September 25, 2018

Call for Demos and Posters 

Middleware 2018 will provide a forum for live software demonstrations of middleware applications, systems, and tools. Demos could take a wide and open-ended variety of forms. Typical examples include: (i) presentation of an application that leverages advanced middleware concepts, (ii) working through coding of an example on a novel middleware platform, or (iii) real-time visualizations of middleware system metrics under simulated workloads. Although the form may vary, demo presenters should take advantage of not being constrained by the format of a traditional slide presentation. Demos are encouraged for both early prototypes and mature technology. Posters will provide an opportunity for conference attendees to learn about innovative work in progress and to preview late-breaking research results. Poster sessions will provide an informal setting for presenters to communicate ideas or results and also to collect feedback from attendees. Demo or poster contributions are solicited in all areas of middleware research and applications. For a list of applicable topics, please consider those from the call for papers. 

Deadline for submission: September 07, 2018
