Middleware 2024 will be a physical conference in Hong Kong, scheduled for December 2024. All presentations for all tracks are expected to be in person. For special inquiries, please contact the general chair.
The annual ACM/IFIP Middleware conference is a major forum for discussing innovations and recent scientific advances in middleware systems with a focus on the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed systems, platforms, and architectures for computing, storage, and communication.
The conference will include a high-quality single-track technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, panel discussions involving academic and industry leaders, poster and demonstration presentations, a doctoral symposium, tutorials, and workshops.
