THE CONFERENCE
==============
Following the success of past conferences in this series (Lake District/UK,
Palisades/NY, and Heidelberg/Germany) and building upon the success of past
COOTS conferences, the 4th International Middleware Conference will be the
premier event for middleware research and technology in 2003. The scope of
the conference is the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation
of distributed system platforms and architectures for future computing and
communication environments. Highlights of the conference include a
high-quality technical program, tutorials, invited speakers, poster
presentations, and workshops, all held in one of Brazil's most outstanding
areas of natural beauty.

The proceedings of Middleware'2003 will be published as a volume of the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

* Distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) middleware platforms
* Reliable and fault-tolerant middleware platforms
* Support for multimedia in middleware platforms
* Novel quality of service (QoS) architectures and evaluation techniques
* Event-based, publish/subscribe and asynchronous middleware platforms
* Open architectures for reconfigurable middleware
* Adaptive and reflective middleware
* Middleware protocols and services for information assurance and security
* Formal Methods applied to middleware
* Management and use of component-based systems in distributed environments
* Applications of middleware technologies, including telematics and 
e-commerce
* Novel paradigms, APIs, and languages for distributed systems
* Integration of middleware with model-integrated computing 
architectures, such as OMG MDA
* Extensions and refinements to RM-ODP, CORBA, J2EE, .NET, etc.
* Impact of emerging Internet technologies and standards on middleware 
platforms
* Integration of middleware platforms with Web services and Java 
technologies
* Distributed systems management and interactive configuration and 
development tools
* Issues of scalability in existing and new distributed systems platforms
* Engineering distributed systems in heterogeneous and mobile networks
* Middleware for ubiquitous and mobile computing
