We wish to be present with Erlang related
papers in the functional programming
conferences but I think that we ought to
appear in some of the realtime or embedded
systems conferences as well.

Best regards



                      CALL FOR PAPERS

        Eighth International Workshop on Parallel and 
        Distributed Real-Time Systems (WPDRTS 2000)
      May 1-2, 2000, Westin Regina Hotel - Cancun, Mexico
             (held in conjunction with IPDPS 2000)

     >>>>>   SUBMISSION DEADLINE DECEMBER 1, 1999  <<<<<

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that demonstrate original 
unpublished research pertaining to real-time systems that have
parallel and/or distributed architectures. Of interest are conceptual,
experimental and implemented systems, their scientific and commercial
applications, and theoretical foundations.  Papers addressing multiple 
aspects of distributed and/or parallel real-time systems are of 
particular interest. 

The Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems (WPDRTS)
brings together researchers from different communities in order to
fill a number of gaps. This is vital since it is becoming more and
more evident that no single discipline or method can solve all the
problems related to computer-based real-time applications. Parallel
and distributed systems that are not real-time have many things in
common with those that are, such as formal specification and design of
concurrent aspects, communication and synchronization, exploitation of
concurrency, and simulation. However, there are also considerable
differences, such as the focus on maximal average performance for
non-real-time concurrent systems and the focus on predictability and
obeying the deadlines for concurrent real-time systems. 

Real-time systems frequently employ parallel and distributed computer 
platforms in order to meet timing constraints and to achieve
fault-tolerance and availability. In order to come to a usable
solution, the issues of concurrency and dependability must be
considered simultaneously. However, it is often the case that
researchers focus on problems relevant to concurrent processing while
overlooking timeliness. Similarly, real-time computing research
efforts are often focused on producing techniques that apply only to
single-processor systems. Thus, WPDRTS covers many important research
areas, while keeping in mind the common thread of parallel and
distributed processing in real-time.

All papers (not more than 10 pages) should be submitted to the 
appropriate program chair:
