MIDDLEWARE08: Call for Industrial Track Papers

MIDDLEWARE08: Call for Industrial Track Papers

*Industrial Track*

The Industrial Track of the Middleware 2008 Conference solicits
papers for presentation at the conference and inclusion in the ACM
Digital Library.  The topics of interest are similar to those in the
general conference call for papers.  However, the purpose of the
Industrial Track is to emphasize practical experience and to disseminate
information of particular interest to developers and others involved
in real-world systems.  Examples of these key areas include:

    * Issues regarding practical deployments
    * Interoperability and middleware standards
    * System evolution
    * Open source implementations of middleware technologies
    * Performance studies and improvements  of real-world systems
    * Issues of scalability
    * Issues of availability and robustness
    * Usability, effectiveness and acceptance under real system/project/
      operating constraints
    * Other kinds of experience reports

Submissions should be made using the conference submission system,
indicating the papers are submitted to the Industrial Track.  Note that
full papers may be submitted to the general conference with the option
to provide the submission, with reviews, to the Industrial Track in the
event it is found to be inappropriate for the general conference tracks.
In that case, an accepted Industrial Track paper will have to be
shortened before appearing in the Digital Library.

Key deadlines:
1 July 2008                  Paper submission
18 August 2008               Acceptance notification
19 September 2008            Final version due
1 December 2008              Conference begins

Papers must not exceed 10 pages, including abstract, all figures, all
tables, and references. Papers should include a short abstract and up to
6 keywords. Submitted papers should follow the formatting instructions
of the Springer LNCS Style (please check the Information for Authors
page at Springer at _http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html_ for
style and formatting guidelines).

Submitted papers may not be submitted for conference publication,
journal publication, or be under review for any other conference or
journal. For any questions regarding this matter, please contact the
track chair
