Ninth International Workshop on
Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems
Sixth International Workshop on
Embedded/Distributed HPC Systems and Applications

WPDRTS 2001 and EHPC 2001

April 23-24, 2001, San Francisco Airport Hyatt
(held in conjunction with the International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium, IPDPS 2001)

The Joint International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems and International Workshop on Embedded/Distributed HPC Systems and Applications is a forum for the presentation and discussion of approaches, research findings, and experiences in the applications of large-scale parallel and distributed real-time systems and high performance computing technology for embedded/distributed systems. Of interest are both the development of relevant technology (e.g.: hardware, middleware, tools) as well as the applications built using such technology.

WPDRTS/EHPC brings together industry, academia, and government researchers to discuss and exchange ideas in the area of large-scale parallel and distributed real-time and embedded systems and to explore the special needs and issues in applying these technologies to defense and commercial applications.

This year our technical program includes nineteen technical papers from the areas of infrastructures, dynamic and stochastic real-time systems, scheduling/mapping, QoS and simulation, and wireless and mobile systems.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Janos Sztipanovits

Dr. Sztipanovits is a program manager at DARPA-ITO, responsible for the management of the Autonomous Negotiating Teams and Model-Based Integration of Embedded Software programs. He is the author of over 130 papers and is the co-author of two books and seven international patents. His work in the area of embedded information systems, structurally adaptive systems and model-integrated computing has been applied and fielded in several major aerospace and manufacturing industry projects.
