Embedded conf. seeks real-time Linux papers

Mar 25, 2008 — by Eric Brown — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

The Object Management Group (OMG) has issued a call for abstracts for its yearly conference on real-time and embedded. The ninth annual “Distributed Object Computing for Real-time and Embedded Systems Workshop” features a special focus on software-based communications, and is set for Jul. 14-16 in Arlington, Va.

The conference presentations will span both enterprise real-time systems and embedded systems, says the OMG, an international, open-membership computer industry consortium known for developing the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and Model Driven Architecture (MDA) development standards. Aimed at standards users, researchers, and implementers, the conference will cover design issues related to software radios, cell phones, medical equipment, vehicle computers, and many other systems, says the OMG. This year it will add interactive features, including roundtables moderated by subject-matter experts.

The OMG is seeking reports, evaluations, case studies, and research papers for presentations, half- and full-day tutorials, and panel discussions. Suggested topics include:

  • Real-time systems
  • Enterprise-scale time-critical systems
  • Embedded systems
  • Systems engineering
  • Fault-tolerant systems
  • High-integrity systems
  • Mission- and safety-critical systems
  • Robotics
  • Software-defined radio systems
  • Design tools for real-time distributed systems
  • Information assurance for embedded systems
  • Complex event processing and event-driven architectures

Technologies relevant to the workshop include:

  • Real-time middleware, including real-time CORBA
  • Data Distribution Service (DDS)
  • Real-time databases
  • Real-time Java, high-integrity real-time Java
  • Real-time operating systems, including real-time Linux
  • Middleware for embedded and resource-constrained systems
  • Middleware for multi-core systems
  • QoS-enabled middleware
  • Architecture frameworks, including MODAF, DoDAF, and TOGAF
  • Modeling notations, including OMG SysML, UML, and UML profiles for real-time and embedded systems
  • Model-driven approaches, including MDA
  • Design methods, including agile methods
  • Component platforms, including CCM and lightweight CCM
  • Novel transport mechanisms
  • High-level real-time programming models
  • Service Oriented Architectures (SOA)
  • Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) architecture
  • System-on-a-Chip (SoC)
Speaker abstracts should be 600 words or less. They can be submitted using an online form, and are due April 11.

Selected presenters will be notified on April 22, and the final workshop agenda, along with registration details, will be published on April 25, here, where you can also find registration information.
