CSE 7300 Section 2 - Real-Time Systems Seminar (Fall 2019)

This semester's Real-Time Systems Seminar will focus on topics of current interest in real-time systems, including graceful degradation and elasticity in mixed-criticality systems, and adversarial examples and security techniques for real-time scheduling.


The seminar will be held 9-10am on Tuesdays in Jolley 309 throughout the semester (except where noted in the schedule below).
