Call for Workshop Proposals

The Middleware conference traditionally includes a number of high 
quality workshops, which are co-hosted with the conference. In order to 
continue this tradition, Middleware 2009 is soliciting proposals for 
1-day workshops. Proposed workshops can be on any topic related to 
middleware, but we are particularly seeking new workshops in emerging 
new middleware areas. We explicitly solicit workshops on novel relevant 
research areas.

This year's workshops will be scheduled on 30 November and 1 December.

The workshop proposal (not exceeding three pages, 11pt) should include 
the following information:
  * The title of the workshop
  * A technical description of the workshop topic area
  * A short description of the intended length and format of the workshop
  * A brief statement of the relevance of the workshop to Middleware
  * The names and e-mail addresses of the organizing committee
  * A list of proposed program committee members

Each workshop will organize their own publicity, submissions and 
refereeing procedures, and provide their own web page. A link will be 
provided to this web page from the Middleware 2009 web site. The 
workshop organizers will apply the schedule outlined below. The 
organizers of the workshop will ensure that all accepted papers are peer 
reviewed. Accepted papers should be no longer than 6 pages in the 
standard ACM format. Notice that workshop organizers are responsible to 
prepare the papers for their workshops in the form required by ACM. As 
in previous years the Middleware conference organizers will provide 
companion proceedings covering all workshops and plan to make all 
workshop papers available in the ACM Digital Library. Camera-ready 
papers will be required by October 1 2009.

The conference organizers aim for a common timeline for all workshops, 
which is presented below.
