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.
