Call for Position Papers (pdf version)

This first NGOSCPS workshop solicits position papers from researchers, and from other stakeholders in academic, industry and government organizations, with a focus on real-time and embedded systems, operating systems, formal methods, cyber-physical systems, and other disciplines, towards framing and moderating a conversation among the workshop participants to identify, document, and discuss important open problems, potential approaches, and promising research agendas towards a new generation of operating systems for cyber-physical systems.

Interested participants are encouraged to submit position papers of 2-3 pages in length (including references) in two-column ACM conference format by Monday February 18, 2019 (anywhere on earth), at the workshop's submission site. Authors of position papers that are selected to appear at the workshop will be invited to give a brief presentation on the topic of their position paper, and to participate in a moderated panel with audience interaction that will follow the set of individual presentations in each topic area.

ACM formatting templates are available at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. To ensure uniform style across the workshop's position papers, authors should please not change the ACM template in terms of font sizes or page margins.

Topics of interest for this year's workshop papers and presentations include, but are not limited to:

  • What assumptions that are embodied by the current state of the art need to be re-examined to realize a new generation of more effective operating systems for cyber-physical systems?
  • How must current operating system approaches evolve, and what new abstractions, semantics, architectures, designs, implementations, etc. will be needed to achieve such a vision fully?
  • How could existing operating systems, particularly those developed through research to refine real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems semantics, be leveraged towards those goals?
  • What opportunities may exist for colleagues in different cyber-physical systems research areas to collaborate towards developing new approaches that cross-cut two or more disciplines?
