COMPSAC is a major international forum for researchers, practitioners,
managers, and policy makers interested in computer software and


Research in middleware systems has evolved from simple client server
models to distributed systems, peer-to-peer (P2P) systems, mobile
devices, service oriented computing, grid computing, agent based
computing, smart devices, and sensors. Each of the above areas poses
its own unique challenges in the design, development and deployment of
middleware, its components and applications using such middleware.

The main objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers
and practitioners working in middleware systems with topics ranging
from different areas such as distributed computing, grid computing,
service oriented computing, pervasive computing, P2P computing, agent
based systems and sensor networks under one roof with an aim of
encouraging exchange of ideas and experiences among these diverse
communities. We solicit papers dealing with design, development and
deployment of middleware and its systems. We are also interested in
specific components of middleware systems, the way they interact with
other modules, components design and development, models of the
components, middleware system issues and also novel computational
sciences applications using middleware systems.


The topics include, but are not limited to:

+ Middleware for collaborative applications
+ Middleware for agent based systems
+ Middleware for service oriented systems
+ Middleware for mobile and ubiquitous computing
+ Middleware for computational sciences applications
+ Middleware for high performance computing applications
+ Middleware for embedded systems and sensor networks
+ Middleware solutions for Security, Privacy and Trust
+ Middleware for distributed systems including databases, P2P, and
grid based systems
+ Middleware issues for real time systems
+ Software engineering techniques for middleware
+ Novel applications using middleware
+ Evaluation metrics and bench mark systems for middleware
+ Specific components of middleware such as : device discovery,
directory service, execution service, listening service, communication
service, and data access service


All submissions must be made through the ME2009 submission site at : . Submissions
must be original, unpublished and not currently under review by
workshops, conferences, or journals.

The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for IEEE
conference proceedings available at : (look for
instruct8.5x11.doc,instruct8.5x11.pdf). The paper should not exceed 6
pages in IEEE paper format including all figures, tables, and

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the
33rd IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2009)
by IEEE Computer Society Press, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index
(Elsevier's Engineering Information Index), and automatically included
in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each
accepted paper must register as a full participant of COMPSAC for the
paper to be included in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be
presented in person by an author.


Deadline for paper submissions: March 1 2009
Notification to authors: April 7, 2009
Camera-ready copies of accepted papers due : April 30, 2009 (hard deadline)
