May 12-14, 2004
Co-Sponsors: IEEE Computer Society TC on Distributed Processing,
in cooperation with: OMG, IFIP WG 10.4
Associated Event: Workshop on Software Technologies for Future Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing Systems (WSTFEUS 2004)
This is the seventh IEEE
Computer Society symposium dealing with the rapidly expanding field of
object-oriented real-time distributed computing (ORC) technology. The
principal theme of ISORC is the use of the object-oriented computing
paradigm - which has prevailed in many non-real-time applications in
the past decade - in a wide variety of real-time applications.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Papers pertaining to all aspectes of ORC are sought, including but not limited to the following:
Programming and system engineering: ORC paradigms, object models, languages, RT Corba, RT DCOM/.NET, RT RMI, RT Java, UML, application programming interface (API), specification, design, verification, validation, testing, maintenance, etc.
Distributed computing and communication infrastructures: Internet QoS (quality of service), real-time communication, networked computing platforms, protocols, inter-operability, security, fault tolerance, virtual subnets for ORC.
System software: real-time kernels and operating systems, middleware support for ORC, QoS management, extensibility, synchronization, resource allocation, scheduling.
Applications: embedded systems (automotive, avionics, consumer electronics, building systems, etc), multimedia processing, Web-based applications, real-time object-oriented simulations.
System evaluation: output accuracy, timeliness, worst-case execution time, dependability, overhead.
Papers dealing with other
issues that are related to the specification, design, implementation,
and evaluation of ORC systems are also welcome. To promote
dialogues between researchers and users of ORC, contributions from
industry are particularly welcome.
CONFERENCE SESSION FORMATS
Following the tradition of ISORC, the conference program will consist of sessions of different formats:
Papers should describe original work, and be 20 double-spaced pages (6,000 words) or less in length.
Industrial papers and practitioner reports, describing experiences of using object-oriented technology in real-time application or tool development projects, are an integral part of the technical program of ISORC. A majority of them are expected to be shorter and less formal than research papers. They should clearly identify, and discuss in detail, the issues that represent the main contribution. Reports with project metrics supporting their claims are particularly sought, as well as those that show both benefits and drawbacks of the approaches used in the given project.
The conference will feature one or two sessions of remote video-conferencing presentations (see section on conference format). Authors of industrial papers who will not be able to present their papers in person may choose to present their paper remotely (the registration fee for remote presentations will be higher than for normal presentations). Please indicate that you would need to present your paper remotely when submitting your paper.
Short synopses (about 5 double-spaced pages in length)
of substantial real-time applications are also invited, and should
contain enough information for the program committee to understand the
scope of the
project and evaluate the novelty of the problem or approach. All
accepted submissions will appear in the proceedings.
submit your paper in portable
postscript or pdf
format (all uncommon fonts embedded) by
PAPER EVALUATION GUIDELINES FOR PROGRAM COMMITTEE
The Program Committee will use the following guidelines in evaluating the submitted papers and composing the technical program:
Papers presenting practical techniques, ideas, or evaluations will be favored. Experience reports or experimental developments are particularly welcome. Originality will not be interpreted too narrowly. Papers that are based on severely unrealistic assumptions will not be accepted however mathematically or logically sophisticated the discussion may be.
The conference will be held in Vienna, Austria.
