Proceedings! The use of middleware in fields as diverse as enterprise computing, mobile and ubiquitous computing, and even traditional real-time and embedded systems is well established - and for good reason. Middleware typically plays two key roles. On the one hand, middleware shields application developers from the low-level details of different underlying platforms. On the other hand, middleware is used to provide suitably expressive and high-level programming models making application development easier and therefore accessible to a wider community of developers. To date, the development of sensor network applications has been dominated by the use of low-level and platform-specific application programming interfaces that are often tedious and error prone to use. In part, this approach is motivated by the severe resource constraints of typical sensor nodes. However, as sensor network applications become more widespread and the diversity of platforms increases there will be a pressing need for middleware just as is the case in other domains. The challenge is to define appropriate middleware architectures encompassing appropriate programming models while respecting the constraints that are unique to sensor networking. The goal of this workshop is to contribute to addressing this challenge by bringing together those researchers already engaged in this research.In response to the call for papers, we received some twenty six papers covering a wide range of topics. We eventually selected eleven submissions for presentation in the workshop covering areas such as dynamic reconfiguration, quality of service, and virtualisation. We believe that the mix of papers provides a good snapshot of current research in the field as well as a jumping off point for discussion of the important research challenges in the field, a key part of the workshop.
