Call for Papers:

Real-time systems are at the core of many devices deployed in our world. Because of their ubiquity, connecting the theoretical with the practical is of paramount importance for the relevance of our research. Substantial amounts of resources in the real-time research community go into developing prototypes, tools, and simulators. Often these are not an end in themselves, but a means to support the main research work. In other cases these are the fledglings of start-up companies. This session will showcase these prototypes, tools, and simulators to a wider audience and support their uptake by other research groups. Additionally, it will serve as focus point for demonstrations by the 4 workshops of RTSS:

The session solicits 2-page extended abstracts-- plus screenshots where appropriate -- as a basic means to select the program. A small committee will screen the proposed demos and formally invite the developers to demonstrate their work. The session will be split into two parts: a short presentation session where each participant has 2 slides (to be collected a priori) to pitch their wares followed by a demonstration and poster session. Each demo must be accompanied by a poster explaining the prototype, tool, or simulator and/or presenting useful results. During the demos a set of anonymous assessors will attend all demonstrations and will grade these in various categories: innovation, usefulness to the community, accessibility, presentation, etc. Based on these, a best demo and a runner up will be determined and awarded a prize (generously sponsored by the School of Engineering Polytechnic of Porto and its CISTER research unit). The session will be run in the last session of the workshop day and will be open to all participants of the RTSS workshops and conference.
