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


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All submissions must be made through the ME2010 submission site at : Submissions must be original, unpublished and not currently under review by workshops, conferences, or journals.

Manuscripts will be limited to six pages, including all figures, tables, and references. Extra page charges may apply. The format of submitted papers must follow the IEEE conference proceedings guidelines (i.e., 8.5" x 11", two-column format) available from Submissions must be original, unpublished and not currently under review by workshops, conferences, or journals.

All accepted papers will be published in the electronic conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, 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 29, 2010
Notification to authors: April 12, 2010
Camera-ready copies of accepted papers due : April 30, 2010 (hard deadline)
