Middleware Conference

Middleware has a history of being the premier conference on middleware research and technology. The broad scope of the conference covers the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed systems platforms and architectures for future distributed computing environments.

Here are some more reasons to join the 9th Middleware 2008 in Leuven, Belgium. Having a paper accepted is one good reason. But we can give you many more: Alfred Spector of Google will talk to you about the latest challenges in large scale distributed computing systems and Willy Zwaenepoel of EPFL will discuss the tradeoff between complex research ideas and the required simplicity for successful innovation. You will interact face-to-face with fellow researchers in various workshops and you can attend some of the tutorials. A panel session will address the impact of virtualization on middleware. Moreover, you can stimulate your creative thinking during the many paper sessions and, last but not least, you can join us in discovering Leuven, the oldest university in the Low Countries (including breweries that can be even older). We look forward to see you at Middleware 2008.
