9th IEEE Workshop on Self-Organizing Real-Time Systems (SORT)

Self-organizing computing systems have become an established research area in the last years as they promise to handle the increasing complexity resulting from highly distributed systems and ubiquitous applications. In addition, real-time properties are required in many areas (such as embedded systems and distributed systems) self-organizing computing systems are dealing with. Combining the flexible and – to some extent – uncertain behavior of self-organizing systems with time-predictability necessary for real-time systems is a grand challenge.

The SORT workshop will address these issues. It will be a forum for leading researchers to exchange ideas, presenting advances in state-of-the-art and brain-storming on promising directions for future research.

SORT will be held in conjunction with the 21th IEEE Int'l Symposium on Real-time Computing (ISORC) taking place at Nanyang Executive Centre, Singapore. Proceedings will be published by IEEE.

Special Issue

Selected papers will be published in a special issue of Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.
