                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                               RTSS 2004
               The 25th IEEE Real-time Systems Symposium

                      http://www.cs.unc.edu/rtss04

                           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.

                            Symposium Scope

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

                          Symposium Highlights

    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

                              Submissions

Manuscripts should be limited to 20 double-spaced pages. All
submissions must be made online at http://www.cs.unc.edu/rtss04. Only
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 at http://www.cs.unc.edu/rtss04 later for further information.
