The registration for the conference is now open. Each paper published in the proceedingns needs to have (at least) one author registration. Additional authors can register (free of charge) as attendees. 

Doctoral Symposium authors do not have to register as authors but should register (free of charge) as attendees. 

Due to the recent developments around COVID-19, we have decided to hold Middleware 2020 as a virtual event. 

Regardless of this decision, full proceedings of all accepted papers will be produced and published in the ACM Digital Library.

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.

Highlights of 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.
