Workshop Description [top]

The second edition of the International Workshop on the Middleware of Large Scale Distributed Systems, MiDiS-2011 is dedicated to the dissemination and evaluation of original contributions to the architectures, methods, techniques, protocols, components, services and tools related to the Middleware of Large Scale Distributed Systems (LSDS) with special emphasis on large P2P, Cloud, Grid, and Web-based systems.

Middleware solutions for LSDS aim to respond to high requirements of large scale distributed applications related to performance, flexibility, extensibility, portability, availability, reliability, safety, security, trust, and scalability, in the context of high number of users, and large geographic distribution of heterogeneous hardware and software resources. The solutions used in the design, implementation, and deployment of systems with such capabilities are based on monitoring, scheduling, optimization, sharing, balancing, discovery, and synchronization methods and techniques that are continuously improved. New services and functionality are added to the middleware to ease the development of new and highly demanding applications with low cost and high performance. New architectures and policies are designed to incorporate solutions for the management of data, resources, tasks, and applications, ensure fault tolerance, accounting, service on demand, and other functions required by user communities to operate effectively a shared services environment. All these topics challenge today researchers, due to the strong dynamic behavior of the user communities and of resource collections they use.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide an open forum for researchers from academia and industry to present, discuss, and exchange ideas, results, and expertise in the area of middleware solution for large scale distributed systems. The workshop also aims at stimulating synergies between Grid, P2P, Cloud, and Web-based developer communities.
