RTSS 2012: Work-in-Progress Session

The 33rd IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium

December 4-7, 2012

San Juan, Puerto Rico


Call for extended abstracts


Submissions of 1 page extended abstracts describing exciting new, in-progress, and/or experimental research are invited for the Work-in-Progress (WIP) session of the 2012 IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS). The WiP session is devoted to the presentation of new and on-going research in real-time systems, theory, and applications. The primary purpose of the WiP session is to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss their evolving ideas and gather feedback from the real-time community at large. Of particular interest are ideas and contributions that present significant paradigm shifts, explore unique and unconventional approaches to important problems, or investigate fundamental departures from conventional wisdom in adopted solutions. WiP topics include, but are not limited to:


-  Adaptive systems theory and practice

-  Architectural support

-  Case studies

-  Compiler support

Composability and compositionality

-  Embedded systems

-  Energy management

-  Formal methods

-  Model-based development

Multicore real-time support

-  Multi-criticality analysis and support

-  Multimedia computing

-  Performance modeling

-  Real-time and dependability

-  Real-time databases

-  Real-time sensor/actuator networks

-  Real-time programming languages

-  Real-time systems middleware

-  Scheduling algorithms

-  Security and survivability

-  Software engineering

-  System development tools

-  Systems integration

-  Cyber-physical systems

-  Worst-case execution time estimation

QoS support


The RTSS 2012 WiP session will be held during the symposium (December 4 - 7, San Juan, Puerto Rico). Submissions should describe original on-going work. Accepted submissions will be published in ACM SIGBED Review. By submitting a paper the authors of the submission give their permission for publication of the submission in ACM SIGBED Review. At RTSS a separate RTSS WiP Proceedings will be distributed to all RTSS symposium participants. This proceedings will also be available electronically from the RTSS home page. One author of every accepted paper should be registered to the conference and present the extended abstract during the conference. All WiP extended abstracts will be presented orally and in a poster session.


Submission instructions


-       The expected length of submitted extended abstracts is 1 page. Submissions should NOT exceed one (1) page including references and figures – extended abstracts exceeding one page will not be reviewed.

-       Extended abstracts should be formatted as single-space, double-column (normal ACM format), in a 9 point font.
(LaTeX style file: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)

-       We will use the START article submission system. (Follow this link: https://www.softconf.com/d/rtss2012wip/)
