Sponsored by IEEE-CS TC-RTS
Following, the success of last year's Work In Progress (WIP) Sessions
during RTSS'96, I am pleased to continue that tradition by presenting
you 10 excellent WIP reports for RTSS'97.
The prime purpose of RTSS WIP sessions is to provide researchers in
Academia and Industry an opportunity to discuss their evolving ideas
and gather feedback thereon from the real-time community at large.
There were 16 submissions for WIP presentations, of which 10 have been
accepted for presentation during the symposium and for inclusion in
RTSS'97 WIP proceedings.
If you would like to reference any article included
in the RTSS'97 WIP Proceedings, please note that theses proceedings
are published as a Technical Report from Boston University, Computer
Science Department (BUCS-TR-97-021).
Many people worked hard to make the idea of holding the WIP sessions a
reality. In particular, I would like to thank Kwei-Jay Lin for
accomodating the WIP sessions within the busy schedule of RTSS'97.
Also, I would like to thank all members of the RTSS'97 Program
Committee who helped me review these submissions. Finally, I would
like to thank all those who submitted their work to RTSS'97 WIP
I hope these sessions will prove beneficial, both to the WIP presenters
and to RTSS'97 attendees.
