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.


-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.
