Call For Papers



The fifth international workshop on Middleware Tools, Services and Run-Time Support for Sensor Networks

A Workshop of Middleware 2010

Bangalore, India

November 29 - December 3, 2010



The 5th MidSens workshop builds on the success of the four previous editions in Urbana Champaign (USA), Leuven (Belgium), Newport Beach (USA) and Melbourne (Australia). The MidSens workshop series exists to trigger and guide research efforts to create an integrated middleware vision, which is required to handle the challenges inherent in developing, deploying and managing complex sensor applications in an efficient way.

The aim of this year's workshop is to stimulate research in the specific domain of middleware, programming languages and run-time support for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), to collect current expertise, to further refine and integrate different approaches and to bridge the gap between Middleware and WSN researchers. The MidSens workshop series investigates how middleware support can relieve developers from low level and platform specific concerns, while enabling optimal exploitation of available resources.

In particular, MidSens 2010 will investigate middleware approaches for realizing multi-application, shared infrastructure sensor networks along with methodologies for integrating sensor networks with enterprise architectures.



Middleware Tools and Architectures:
- Software architectures for sensor middleware.
- Programming abstractions for sensor networks (e.g. macro-programming).
- Middleware support for autonomic sensor networks.
- Lightweight agent middleware for sensor networks.
- Testing and simulation tools for sensor network middleware.
- Fault identification, diagnosis and repair.

Middleware services:
- Data management, aggregation and filtering.
- Energy-aware middleware mechanisms.
- Support for resource awareness and policy-based management.
- Fault tolerance, QoS, privacy and security.

Management of WSNs:
- Overlay and topology creation, maintenance and management.
- Resource/Service discovery and management.
- Support for reconfiguration and adaptation in sensor networks.
- Effective naming and addressing schemes for sensor networks.

Experiences with WSN Middleware:
- Managing sensor heterogeneity and network dynamism.
- Integration of WSNs with Web Services, enterprise systems and legacy systems.
- Experiences with WSN middleware in real-world applications.
- Support for the use of consumer mobile devices as sensing infrastructure.
- Shared infrastructure sensor networks.
