4th IEEE International Workshop on Real-Time Computing and Distributed systems in Emerging Applications ( R E A C T I O N    2 0 1 6 )
Co-located with 37th IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium. Porto, Portugal. November 29th, 2016 http://www.cister.isep.ipp.pt/reaction2016/

 Timeliness is challenge in the context of distributed systems and, specifically, in the cyber-physical domain. Providing real-time operation whereas supporting the inherent dynamic behavior of cyber-physical systems requires solutions that are not yet available. A number of challenging scientific and engineering problems that span across a variety of research areas are raised. The new challenges go far beyond those of traditional networked real-time systems; CPS are autonomous, open, large-scale, real-time, embedded, and control systems that make intensive use of networks, distribution, and wireless technology.

Such complex systems have different [sub]parts/systems with different levels of real-time requirements.
>From different (though related) research communities, researchers are heading towards the same point possibly walking parallel paths with the goal of effectively and efficiently providing the level of temporal guarantees required by the new complex systems, spanning from temporal predictability to probabilistic QoS guarantees. Solutions from different communities present interesting approaches that can benefit from meeting at a common forum with the goal of drawing complementary pictures of the problem to identify novel research directions as resulting from this crossbreading.
REACTION calls for contributions with a clear practical application including, but not limited to, the challenging issues in the integration of real-time computing and distributed systems in the context of reliable software technologies (communication middleware, operating systems, virtualization technology, etc.):

*Scheduling and resource management for Quality of Service support and Real-Time operation in distributed systems;
*Real-time middleware;
*Real-time reconfiguration in distributed computing;
*Scalable computing models and algorithms and massively parallel real-time distributed computing;
*System modeling and component technology;
*Technologies for modeling and programming distributed real-time systems and CPS
*Operating system support and resource management for dynamic distributed real-time systems and cloud computing applications;
*Real-time assurance in virtualized environments and performance assessment;
*QoS properties for distributed systems;
*Self-healing and survivability of distributed real-time systems;
*Optimization of the network operation and performance;
*Energy-aware resource management;
*Service-oriented architectures and composition.

Paper submission guidelines:
Full papers (6 pages) and long abstracts (2 pages) are called for. Contributions should be submitted in IEEE format (see web site):   http://www.cister.isep.ipp.pt/reaction2016.
