CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS


MIDDLEWARE 2005

ACM/IFIP/USENIX 6th International Middleware Conference Grenoble, France

November 28th - December 2nd, 2005


Following the success of the past conferences in this series in the Lake District, UK (1998), in Palisades, NY (2000), in Heidelberg, Germany (2001), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2003), in Toronto, Canada (2004), the 6th International Middleware Conference in Grenoble, France in 2005 aims at being the premier conference on middleware research and technology in 2005. The broad scope of the conference is the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed systems platforms and architectures for future computing environments.

For the first time, Middleware will have a demonstrators track where research and development projects will have an opportunity to be shown and demonstrated in public. The demonstrations will have their own sessions to ensure attendance (Middleware is planned as a single track conference). We are interested in demonstrators of systems, platforms, and applications directly related to Middleware.
