Call For Presentations
Workshop on Distributed Object Computing for 
Real-time and Embedded Systems 
12th - 15th July 2004 , Washington, DC USA

Abstract deadline: Friday 19th March 2004

Hosted by: The Object Management Group
Software standards for real-time and embedded systems must address
their unique requirements, including predictability, resource
minimisation, reliability and support for specialised hardware. The
challenge is particularly acute for middleware standards, which must
accommodate the performance and reliability variations of the
underlying network or inter-process communication.

The Object Management Group (OMG) is a leader in standards for
real-time and embedded distributed object computing. The OMG Common
Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) middleware standard
supports real-time scheduling (both static and dynamic), fault
tolerance(using replication), and resource constrained systems. OMG's
Unified Modelling Language (UML) supports real-time systems design,
and Model Driven Architecture (MDA) helps create applications from
models. These specifications are all widely used.

Following the success of past real-time and embedded workshops, OMG is
hosting this workshop as a forum for standards users, researchers and
implementers to share their experiences. Presentations and discussions
at the workshop will also help shape future of OMG standards.The
workshop is open to all with an interest in real-time,
high-confidence, or embedded applications, services, tools and
methodologies. The programme will also include tutorials on CORBA,
UML, MDA and other relevant technology.

The workshop Programme Committee is seeking proposals for
presentations or panels on any of the following topics:

Case studies of deployed Real-time and Embedded CORBA-based systems 
Including (but not limited to) case studies of:
- Applying CORBA in any real-time or embedded system 
- High-confidence, high-availability or safety-critical CORBA
- Real-Time, Fault Tolerant or Minimum CORBA interoperability and
- Security considerations in real-time or embedded CORBA deployments 
Design and modelling of Real-time, embedded and mission-critical
Including (but not limited to) reports on the application of:
- UML and MDA to real-time, embedded and high-availability systems 
- Agile methods (including Agile Modelling) 
Real-Time & Embedded Specifications and Standards
Experience reports from developers implementing real-time and embedded
specifications and standards, including:
- Real-Time CORBA, Fault-tolerant CORBA and CORBA Services 
- CORBA Component Model (CCM) 
- US Navy Open Architecture 
- Software Communications Architecture (SCA) and other
software-defined radio

Real-Time & Embedded Product Issues 
Reports from users of real-time and embedded products and tools,
- Real-Time or Quality of Service (QoS) issues in embedded middleware 
- Profiling, profiles, and services 
- Qualitative and/or quantitative evaluations of real-time, high
confidence and embedded middleware

Real-Time and Embedded Advanced R&D Topics 
Research reports on relevant topics, such as:
- Advanced scheduling techniques and high-level real-time programming
- Transport approaches to end-to-end QoS 
- Multi-layer ORB end-system resource management 
- Power-aware and reflective ORB middleware for wide-area mobile
- Integrating Real-Time Java, Real-Time CORBA and Real-Time Linux 
- Next-generation object models and CORBA services 
- Fault-tolerance issues in real-time and embedded systems 
- Combining multiple QoS properties in real-time and embedded systems 
- High-performance or novel transport layers for real-time
- Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) and other model-based development
Proposals are welcomed for half-day or full-day tutorials on
established techniques and standards in any of the areas touched on in
this call.

Interested individuals or organisations are invited to submit a brief
(up to 600 word) abstract of their proposed workshop presentation via
email to by Friday 19th March 2004.

The Programme Committee will select presentations for inclusion in the
programme and notify authors by Thursday 8th April 2004. Final
presentation materials will be required from all selected presenters
by Friday 11th June 2004.
The final workshop agenda and registration details will be available
by Friday 16th April 2004 and posted at:

About The OMG
The Object Management Group (OMG) is an international, open
membership, not-for-profit computer industry standards consortium. OMG
member companies write, adopt, and maintain its standards following a
mature, open process. OMG's standards implement the Model Driven
Architecture®  (MDA®), maximizing ROI through a full-lifecycle
approach to enterprise integration that covers multiple operating
systems, programming languages, middleware and networking
infrastructures, and software development environments. OMG's
standards include:  UML™   (Unified Modeling Language™  );  CORBA® 
(Common Object Request Broker
Architecture);  CWM™   (Common Warehouse Metamodel);  and
industry-specific standards for dozens of vertical markets. OMG has
