Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems
The Work-in-Progress (WIP) Session of the 2005 IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS) collected some of the latest on-going research ideas and results in real-time systems. Twenty papers have been selected to appear in this session. Among them, seven papers are presented in this issue. Two reviews from the program committee were assigned to each paper. The papers selected to appear on this issue were allowed to be extended to two more pages. The WIP Session has been divided into four different topic areas, covering the major areas of real-time systems research: (1) scheduling (2) real-time middleware and software engineering, (3) real-time and sensor networks, 4) Power System and Security. This issue also selected papers from these four areas. The first two papers (Anderson and Calandrino, Cucu and Tovar) describe novel scheduling strategies and analysis. Then the following two papers (Krishna, Gokhale and Schmidt, Anantaraman and Rotenberg) present ongoing research on real-time software construction and execution time analysis. The next paper (Liu, Rangaswami and Dimitrijevic) deal with real-time networks. The final two papers (Kang and Son, Cheng and Feng) look at security and energy-saving systems. We hope that you will find this issue stimulating and rewarding.
