CALL FOR PAPERS
RTSS 2004 The 25th IEEE Real-time Systems Symposium
December 5-8, 2004 Lisbon, Portugal
Sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-time Systems In collaboration with ACM SIGBED (approval pending)
Submissions of papers describing original research in all areas of real-time computing and communication systems including design, analysis and implementation are invited for consideration towards presentation at the 25th IEEE Real-time Systems Symposium, and publication in the Symposium Proceedings to be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
The Real-time Systems Symposium (RTSS) provides a forum for the presentation of high-quality, original research covering all aspects of real-time systems design, analysis, implementation, evaluation and case-studies. RTSS 2004 will consciously continue the trend of making RTSS an expansive and inclusive symposium, looking to embrace new and emerging areas of real-time and embedded systems research. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
o QoS support o Compiler support o Model-based development o Embedded operating systems o Energy management o System development tools o Real-time systems middleware o Software engineering o Adaptive systems theory and practice o Real-time databases o Real-time sensor/actuator networks o RT programming languages o Security and survivability o Scheduling o Real-time and dependability o Formal methods o Wireless communications o Case-studies o Multimedia computing o Systems integration o Architectural support o Performance modeling
o Best Paper award o Best Student Paper award - To be eligible for the Best Student Paper Award, the lead (primary) author must be a student (at the time of submission), and a student author must present the paper at the conference. o Best papers will be invited for a special issue of the Real-time Systems Journal o Workshops of interest to the real-time systems community o Keynote address o Work-in-Progress Session capturing ongoing work
Manuscripts should be limited to 20 double-spaced pages. All submissions must be made online atOnly PDF and postscript formats will be accepted. Each paper should be submitted to one of the following tracks:
o Regular RTSS Track o Real-time Middleware and Software Engineering Track o Hardware-Software Co-design Track o Real-time Communication and Sensor Networks Track
Papers covering topics traditionally appearing in RTSS should be submitted to the Regular Track. These papers will be reviewed by the RTSS program committee. Each special track has its own program committee. Papers submitted to the special tracks will be reviewed by these committees.
Separate calls for papers will be issued later for work-in-progress abstracts and symposium workshops. Please visit the conference website atlater for further information.
