Contact Email:andrew@omg.org
Synopsis:
Software standards for real-time, embedded and enterprise-scale time-critical systems must support stringent resource, reliability, and timing requirements. The challenge is particularly acute for middleware standards, which must cope with performance and reliability variations of the underlying infrastructure. The goal of the workshop is to identify the state of the art and disseminate current best practice in real-time systems of all types and scales (from small-scale embedded applications to the largest enterprise-scale distributed systems) for the benefit of standards users, researchers and implementers. Relevant standards include DDS, CORBA, Java, UML, UPDM, SysML.

MobiSys 2011
