RTSS 2021

Industry Session

The purpose of RTSS 2021 Industry Session is to initiate and strengthen the collaborations between industry and academia in real-time systems research. Different from traditional panel discussions, this year the RTSS Industry Session will adopt a new form to engage tighter and more comprehensive interactions between participants from the industry and academia in the form of a long time frame before the conference and finally wrapped up by an industry session held during the conference. More specifically:

  1. RTSS 2021 organizers solicit open challenges from industry partners (tentative deadline: Apr 30th, 2021).
  2. The Industry Session Committee selects and possibly asks for clarifications aiming at publishing to the public (tentative deadline: Jun 1st, 2021) the selected challenges
  3. We call for solutions from researchers (tent. deadline: Sep 30th, 2021).
  4. The proposed solutions are sent to the challenge proposers for reviewing and discussion with the Industry Session Committee (tentative notification date of the selected solutions: Oct 20, 2021).
  5. Finally, the challenges and selected solutions will be compiled into a report available on RTSS 2021 website (and possibly made into a formal journal/conference publication later with joint efforts of the challenge proposers and solution contributors) and presented to RTSS audience in the Industry Session hold during RTSS 2021 conference.

Excellent solutions will be granted the RTSS 2021 Industry Challenge Best Solution Award and acknowledged during RTSS 2021 conference.
