The Middleware Advanced Workshops program started in 2000 with the 1st Workshop on Reflective Middleware in New York. The surprising success of this first workshop, both in number of submission and number of participants, motivated the continuation of the Workshop program in the following events of the Middleware series. In Heidelberg, Middleware'2001 hosted two well attended workshops on Mobile Computing and Electronic Commerce, always focusing on research within the middleware area. In Rio, Middleware'2003 expanded the program with an open Call for Workshops that resulted in four high-quality workshops: Mobile and Ad-Hoc Computing, Reflective and Adaptive Middleware, Grid Computing, and Model-Driven Approaches.
