IEEE ISORC was founded in 1998 (with its first meeting in Kyoto, Japan) to address research into the application of real-time object-oriented distributed technology. Since then, ISORC has continually evolved to meet the latest challenges faced by researchers and practitioners in the real-time domain, with an emphasis on object-, component- and service- oriented systems and solutions..
ISORC is a single-track conference, with a low acceptance rate and a lively community. We host a number of associated workshops, and are proud of our spirit of openness. We seek to encourage diverse views and new approaches to all Real-Time Issues and Challenges for novel applications and systems in RT computing issues. This year's theme is Scalable, Real Time Analytics
For our 20th symposium, we are meeting in Toronto, in Canada from May 16 - 18, 2017. Our meetings will take place at the Fields Institute, 222 College Street, Toronto, Ontario M5T 3J1, Canada.

Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) are large-scale distributed systems spanning wireless sensor networks and cloud computing backend. Emerging applications from Industry 4.0 to smart cities demand end-to-end real-time services across IoT systems. However, existing IoT technologies are ill suited for time-critical applications due to the lack of real-time performance guarantees in both wireless sensor networks and the cloud backend. This talk will discuss recent advances in real-time IoT in two key fronts. On the wireless front, we introduce real-time scheduling and protocols for industrial wireless sensor-actuator networks. On the cloud front, we will describe a real-time software stack for cloud computing: (1) RT-Xen, a real-time virtual machine scheduler incorporated in the Xen hypervisor; (2) VATC, a real-time network I/O system for virtualized hosts; and (3) RT-OpenStack, a cloud CPU resource manager for real-time virtual machines. The talk will further highlight the challenges and research opportunities toward an end-to-end infrastructure for real-time Internet of Things.
Biography: Chenyang Lu is the Fullgraf Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. His research interests include real-time systems, wireless sensor networks, cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things. He is Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks, Area Editor of IEEE Internet of Things Journal and Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems and Real-Time Systems Journal. He also chaired premier conferences such as IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS), ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS) and ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys). He is the author and co-author of over 150 research papers with over 16,000 citations and an h-index of 56. He received the Ph.D. degree from University of Virginia in 2001, the M.S. degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1997, and the B.S. degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 1995. He is a Fellow of IEEE.
Biography: Chris Hobbs works for QNX Software Systems, specialising in the design and implementation of embedded, real-time systems for use in safety-critical applications (particularly medical, railway, industrial and automotive). He works on both the safety certification of QNX products against standards such as IEC61508, IEC62304 and ISO26262, and also on providing consultancy to QNX's customers building safety-critical devices. His book "Embedded Software Development for Safety-Critical Systems" was published in 2015. When not working with embedded systems, he provides flight instruction, sings Schubert Lieder and is author of various books including "Flying Beyond: The Canadian Commercial Pilot Textbook”.
