                                                      CALL FOR PAPERS
                            The 19th IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium
                                                        Madrid, Spain
                                                    December 2-4, 1998

        Sponsored by The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on
                                                    Real-Time Systems

                                              SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE

RTSS '98 brings together a diverse body of researchers and developers,
to advance the science and practice of real-time and embedded systems.
All papers on real-time, embedded or reactive systems are welcome,
including (but not limited to) the following topics:

      * Operating Systems for Real-Time/Embedded Applications.
      * Systems Design: Functional, Structural and Operational Levels.
      * Scheduling Algorithms: CPUs, Devices, Networks, End-To-End.
      * Formal Methods, Specification, Verification, Analysis.
      * Programming Languages for Real-Time and Embedded Systems.
      * Middleware and APIs for Real-Time and Embedded Systems.
      * Performance Modeling: Analysis and Tools.
      * Architecture Issues in Real-Time and Embedded Systems.
      * Instrumentation, Profiling and Testing.
      * Support for COTS-Based Integrated Systems.
      * Fault Tolerance, Reliability and Safety.
      * Static Timing Analysis and Tool Support.
      * Object-Oriented Languages: Designs, Programs and Interfaces.
      * Real-Time Issues in Databases and File Systems.
      * Communications Protocols and Computer Networks.
      * Image Processing, Signal Processing, Control and Robotics.
      * Digital Video, Animation and Multimedia.

Papers on these or other relevant topics are solicited for RTSS '98.
Of particular interest are case-study reports on experimental results,
from any core application area in real-time, embedded and/or reactive


                                                SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Papers should describe original research (i.e., not published
elsewhere), and should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages. All
accepted submissions will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE,
with the committee recommending a selection of the best papers for
publication in a journal.

If possible, submissions should be made electronically, either in
postscript or PDF format. Additional details on submission guidelines
will be posted at the RTSS'98 Home Page:


Electronic submissions are preferred; however postal submissions will
be accepted for review, provided they arrive by the Submission Deadline
of May 1, 1998. All authors taking this option should mail eight (8)
copies of their submitted papers to the Program Chair:

                                                      IMPORTANT DATES

              * May 1, 1998 -- Deadline for paper submissions
              * July 25, 1998 -- Notification of acceptance
              * September 1, 1998 -- Final paper due
              * December 2-4, 1998 -- RTSS '98, Madrid, Spain


Exhibition and Show: RTSS '98 will include an industrial exhibition in
a centrally located space, for vendors to demonstrate state-of-the-art
systems, development tools and applications; where RTSS attendees can
engage in technical discussions with product engineers and developers;
and where company representatives meet (and potentially recruit) young
researchers specializing in real-time and embedded systems. To reserve
space for the exhibition, please contact the RTSS '98 Industrial
Chair, Dr. Alan Burns (burns@minster.cs.york.ac.uk).

Workshop: RTSS '98 will co-host a workshop on December 1, 1998,
directly before the conference. The focus of the workshop will be a
"hot topic" of special interest to researchers and developers of
real-time systems. Recent RTSS workshops were on topics such as
Middleware/APIs (1997) and Multimedia Systems (1996). More information
on the 1998 workshop topic will be announced shortly, and publicized
on the conference home page.

Work-in-Progress Session: As in previous years, RTSS '98 will include
a Work-In-Progress (WIP) session, featuring short presentations on new
and evolving work. Accepted WIP papers will be included in a special
proceedings, and distributed to RTSS'98 conference participants. The
proceedings will then be published electronically on the IEEE-CS
TC-RTS Home Page. WIP papers will be due approximately one month
before the Symposium.
