Welcome to COMSWARE 2011

The Fifth International Conference on COMmunication System softWAre and middlewaRE

July 4-5 2011, Verona, Italy

Sponsored by ICST

Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society

In co-operation with ACM, SIGSOFT, SIGAPP


The Fifth International Conference on Communication System Software and Middleware (COMSWARE) will be held from July 4th to July 5th, 2011 in Verona, Italy. The conference will focus on important innovations and recent advances in the specification, design, construction and use of communication systems software and middleware systems. Current communication systems cover a large range of computing platforms from traditional fixed-line telecommunication systems to mobile computing, multimedia systems, peer-to-peer networks and Internet services. The interoperation of all these systems is crucial. Integrating, connecting and coordinating communication is critical for communication systems software and middleware systems.

The COMSWARE conference is the premier international forum for researchers, business leaders, educators and practitioners to present and discuss recent innovations, advances in technology, experiences in current systems and potential concerns in the field of communication systems software and middleware systems. The conference will feature a high quality technical program consisting of invited speakers, regular papers, short papers, software demonstrations, industrial papers, posters and workshops.


Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. The specific topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative architectures for Internet services, Web services, service computing, and cloud computing
  • Middleware and communication support for mobile devices, smart phones and smart applications
  • Security, and quality of service in communication networks, middleware, and Internet services
  • Methods and tools for designing and evaluating software and middleware communication systems
  • Middleware for social networking systems, social networking applications and case studies
  • Large-scale system integration, software evolution, software engineering methodologies, and requirements engineering for software and middleware communication systems, and Internet services
  • Wireless and mobile networking, wireless operating systems, mobile platforms and embedded systems
  • Communication systems architecture, design, development methodologies, and business models
  • Middleware for mobile computing, embedded systems, peer-to-peer systems and applications
  • Middleware for event processing, event-based systems, publish/subscribe and messaging middleware
  • Designing, implementing, and evaluating middleware for service oriented architectures
  • Case studies of specification, design, and use of software and middleware communication systems
  • Innovations in operations and management of large networks and large-scale enterprise systems
