CfP: OMG's Real-time and Embedded Systems Workshop

Call For Presentations Workshop on Distributed Object Computing for Real-time and Embedded Systems

12th - 15th July 2004 , Washington, DC USA

Abstract deadline: Friday 19th March 2004

Hosted by: The Object Management Group Software standards for real-time and embedded systems must address their unique requirements, including predictability, resource minimisation, reliability and support for specialised hardware. The challenge is particularly acute for middleware standards, which must accommodate the performance and reliability variations of the underlying network or inter-process communication.

The Object Management Group (OMG) is a leader in standards for real-time and embedded distributed object computing. The OMG Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) middleware standard supports real-time scheduling (both static and dynamic), fault tolerance(using replication), and resource constrained systems. OMG's Unified Modelling Language (UML) supports real-time systems design, and Model Driven Architecture (MDA) helps create applications from models. These specifications are all widely used.

Following the success of past real-time and embedded workshops, OMG is hosting this workshop as a forum for standards users, researchers and implementers to share their experiences. Presentations and discussions at the workshop will also help shape future of OMG standards.The workshop is open to all with an interest in real-time, high-confidence, or embedded applications, services, tools and methodologies. The programme will also include tutorials on CORBA, UML, MDA and other relevant technology.

The workshop Programme Committee is seeking proposals for presentations or panels on any of the following topics:

Case studies of deployed Real-time and Embedded CORBA-based systems Including (but not limited to) case studies of:

- Applying CORBA in any real-time or embedded system

- High-confidence, high-availability or safety-critical CORBA applications

- Real-Time, Fault Tolerant or Minimum CORBA interoperability and performance

- Security considerations in real-time or embedded CORBA deployments Design and modelling of Real-time, embedded and mission-critical systems Including (but not limited to) reports on the application of:

- UML and MDA to real-time, embedded and high-availability systems

- Agile methods (including Agile Modelling) Real-Time & Embedded Specifications and Standards Experience reports from developers implementing real-time and embedded specifications and standards, including:

- Real-Time CORBA, Fault-tolerant CORBA and CORBA Services

- CORBA Component Model (CCM)

- US Navy Open Architecture

- Software Communications Architecture (SCA) and other software-defined radio standards

Real-Time & Embedded Product Issues Reports from users of real-time and embedded products and tools, including:

- Real-Time or Quality of Service (QoS) issues in embedded middleware

- Profiling, profiles, and services

- Qualitative and/or quantitative evaluations of real-time, high confidence and embedded middleware

Real-Time and Embedded Advanced R&D Topics Research reports on relevant topics, such as:

- Advanced scheduling techniques and high-level real-time programming models

- Transport approaches to end-to-end QoS

- Multi-layer ORB end-system resource management

- Power-aware and reflective ORB middleware for wide-area mobile systems

- Integrating Real-Time Java, Real-Time CORBA and Real-Time Linux

- Next-generation object models and CORBA services

- Fault-tolerance issues in real-time and embedded systems

- Combining multiple QoS properties in real-time and embedded systems

- High-performance or novel transport layers for real-time applications

- Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) and other model-based development approaches Tutorials Proposals are welcomed for half-day or full-day tutorials on established techniques and standards in any of the areas touched on in this call.

Instructions Interested individuals or organisations are invited to submit a brief (up to 600 word) abstract of their proposed workshop presentation via email to by Friday 19th March 2004.

The Programme Committee will select presentations for inclusion in the programme and notify authors by Thursday 8th April 2004. Final presentation materials will be required from all selected presenters by Friday 11th June 2004. The final workshop agenda and registration details will be available by Friday 16th April 2004 and posted at:
