Dear Colleagues:

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 Sessions.

I hope these sessions will prove beneficial, both to the WIP presenters and to RTSS'97 attendees.
