Conference Location
Call For Papers
ISORC has become established as the leading event devoted to state-of-the-art research in the field of object/component/service-oriented real-time distributed computing (ORC) technology. The conference theme for 2018 will be decentralized time-sensitive computing and enabling software infrastructures. This theme will focus on both:

    Cloud infrastructures and platforms for time-sensitive computation and real-time computing
    Algorithms and Computational Infrastructure to support complex social cyber-physical systems combining edge, fog, and cloud

Main theme and topics

We solicit high-quality papers pertaining to all aspects of ORC technology and especially those that are well aligned with the 2018 theme. Authors are encouraged to consider submissions with a practical orientation and validation related to Case Studies & Applications in this area. The specific ORC focus areas include, but are not limited to:

    Programming and system engineering: real-time programming challenges, ORC paradigms, object/component models, languages, synchronous languages.
    Embedded distribution middleware middleware such as .NET, RT RMI, RT Java, UML, model-maintenance, system of systems, time-predictable systems and hardware.
    Distributed computing and communication infrastructures: real-time communication, networked platforms, protocols, Internet QoS, peer-to-peer computing, sensor networks, VANETS and V2V and V2I communication, trusted and dependable systems.
    Algorithms for Real Time Analytics: clustering and classification approaches, stream processing algorithms, real time decision tree generation and update, real time machine learning, statistical approaches. Approaches related to stream correlation and sampling.
    System software: real-time kernels and OS, middleware support for ORC, QoS management, extensibility, synchronization, resource allocation, scheduling, fault tolerance, security.
    Real-time algorithms and infrastructure support for decentralized architectures including distributed ledgers with a focus on scalability and resilience.
    Applications: Medical devices, intelligent transportation systems, Industrial automation systems and Industry 4.0, Internet of Things and Smart Grids, Embedded systems (automotive, avionics, consumer electronics, building systems, sensors, etc), multimedia processing, RT Web-based applications.
    System evaluation: performance analysis, monitoring & timing, dependability, end-to-end QoS, overhead, fault detection and recovery time.
    Cyber-physical and Cyber-social systems (e.g. social media analytics)

Guidelines for Manuscripts

IEEE ISORC 2018 invites papers in three categories. Submission guidelines for each category of paper are as follows:

    Regular Research Papers: Papers should describe original work and be maximum 8 pages in length using the IEEE paper format (link to templates). A maximum of two extra pages may be purchased.
    Industrial Papers and Practitioner Reports: Papers describing experiences of using ORC technology in application or tool development projects, are an integral part of the technical program of ISORC. A majority of these papers are expected to be shorter and less formal than research papers. They should clearly identify and discuss in detail the issues that represent notable industrial advances. Reports with project metrics supporting their claims are particularly sought, as well as those that show both benefits and drawbacks of the approaches used in the given project.
    Short Papers: Short research papers, 4 pages or less using the IEEE format, on real-time analytics are also invited, and should contain enough information for the program committee to understand the scope of the project and evaluate the novelty of the problem or approach.

Acceptance Criteria

According to program committee guidelines, papers presenting practical techniques, ideas, or evaluations will be favored. Papers reporting experimentation results and industrial experiences are particularly welcome. Originality will not be interpreted too narrowly. Papers that are based on severely unrealistic assumptions will not be accepted however mathematically or logically sophisticated the discussion may be.
