Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems
This special issue of SIGBED Review presents revised papers from the Second Workshop on High Performance, Fault Adaptive, Large Scale Embedded Real-time Systems (FALSE-II) held with RTAS 2005 in March 2005 and a paper contribution from the Real-time Embedded Systems (RTES) group consisting physicist, engineers, and computer scientists from Fermi Lab, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, UIUC, and Vanderbilt.
The workshop seeks to foster interaction, communication, and cross-fertilization between representatives of the many diverse fields researching these systems with representatives from the various application domains that require them. The first workshop (FALSE-I) was held for two days with six technical sessions -- all with invited talks -- at Vanderbilt University in November 2002.
Two years later, the workshop invited technical paper participations from the international computer science community. The workshop is held with a well-received real-time conference, RTAS 2005. The second workshop consists of twenty-two technical program committee members and participants from six different countries. The six papers presented in the workshop were peer-reviewed by three reviewers each.
The main theme of this special issue is on design and study of high performance, fault-adaptive, large scale embedded real-time systems. The first paper presents the RTES Demo System 2004, a prototype for the fault-adaptive real-time data acquisition system for high-energy physics experiments. Six regular papers followed present research efforts on garbage collection in large real-time systems, Embedded architecture for Grid storage network support, a methodology for real-time performance metrics using concepts from dynamic systems, high performance real-time 3-D image reconstruction, and a software engineering method that helps to reveal false assumptions in designing large real-time software.
I am grateful to all the contributors and the editor-in-chief, Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher for making this special issue possible.
