Hi everybody, I apologise for interrupting your meditation. Please take a minute to read the following message. May be it is worth trying to attend the SCI'2000 in Orlando.

The first version of RT UML was submitted in August 2000. Although very well done, it meets only partially the mandatory requirements of the OMG and will therefore be further elaborated. There is a fair chance that the RT UML becomes a "lingua franca" that substitutes (at least temporarily) the infinite variety of development methods and tools used for building real-time systems. We all (the addressees of this message) are actively working in the domain of real-time systems and have good practical experience with time-critical behaviour of the systems (and especially with that of software). We all have some ideas of how to detect potential timing problems at the early stages of systems' development. I am convinced that I am not the only lazy person who hates to redesign the software because of the scheduling problems discovered only at the implementation stage. Would it not be useful to have a discussion on what features are required and which methods could be used for further enhancing the RT UML? The 5th Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (SCI'2001) (http://www.iiis.org/sci/ ), in Orlando, Florida, USA, July 22-25, 2001, provides a good forum for such a discussion. It is true that the scope of this event is pretty vaguely focused - but so are the applications of real-time software. It is also true that the conference does not probably attract all the top people in the world, but this does not necessarily exclude the exception (e.g. in the case of time-critical software). We are offered a special section on time-critical systems at SCI'2001, preliminarily called "Specification and design of time-critical software" .May I humbly request your co-operation in making the plans true. I understand that everybody of us has a tight time schedule. But then, we all have younger colleagues who can amplify our ideas and do not have a too tight time schedule. Should you agree to co-operate, please send me the title and authors of your paper by January 23rd, extended abstracts are requested by February 15th. Looking forward to your submissions and, With the best wishes Leo Motus ============================================ Professor Leo Motus tel. +372 6202 095 Real-time Systems fax +372 6202 096 Tallinn Technical University e-mail leo.motus@dcc.ttu.ee Ehitajate tee 5, Tallinn, 19 086 Estonia ==============================================
