Conference Information

We are currently planning for a physical conference in Quebec City, scheduled for November 2022. Due to the current pandemic, our plans may change and require a virtual conference. We will provide updates as they become available through our various channels (Website, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn). In any case, please note that Middleware 2022 will adopt a 2-cycles submission process, and that the deadline for the 1st cycle submission of research articles is set to the end of November 2021.

ACM/IFIP Middleware

The annual ACM/IFIP Middleware conference is a major forum for the discussion of innovations and recent scientific advances of middleware systems with a focus on the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed systems, platforms and architectures for computing, storage, and communication.
