RTSS 2020

Call for Demos

Open Demo Session of Real-Time Systems

RTSS@Work is the open demo session organized as a part of the IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium, the premier conference in the area of Real-Time Systems. The goal of RTSS@Work is to provide a platform for researchers to present prototypes, tools, simulators, and systems, which extend the state-of- the-art in Real-Time Technologies and Techniques. This session will augment the traditional forum by enabling presenters to demonstrate working systems, thereby allowing them to directly engage with the audience, generate interest in new research topics, and encourage wider adoption of common frameworks.

RTSS@Work welcomes demonstrations showcasing high-quality original research in all areas of real-time systems, including but not limited to operating systems, networks, middleware, scheduling, formal methods, security, tools, compilers, modelling, QoS support, resource management, testing and debugging, hardware/software co-design, fault tolerance, power and thermal management, embedded platforms, and system experimentation and deployment experiences.

Authors are invited to submit a 1 to 2 page summary of the demo in the IEEE Conference Proceedings format. Since some demos may be closely related to a specific software package/product or a published paper, RTSS@Work will use a single-blind review process. That is, author names and affiliations must appear on the submission. The program committee will screen the summaries and formally invite the authors of the selected demos. The session will consist of three parts in the virtual format as follows.

  1. The contributors will record a video for their demos. The videos will be available two weeks before the conference.
  2. Each demo will be assigned to a virtual poster stand to summarize the demo. The posters will be placed in one of the virtual social rooms. The participants will have free access to these rooms.
  3. In case more detailed discussions are needed, the participant can directly use the conference interface to make a discussion session for more details.
