Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP), Portugal

CISTER (www.cister.isep.ipp.pt) is a top-ranked Portuguese Research Unit based at the School of Engineering of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (ISEP), Portugal. The Unit focuses its activity in the analysis, design and implementation of real-time and dependable computing systems and has become one of the leading European research units in the area. The CISTER Research Unit has been contributing with seminal research works in a number of subjects, such as real-time communication networks and protocols, wireless sensor networks, real-time programming paradigms and operating systems, distributed embedded real-time systems; cooperative computing and QoS-aware applications, scheduling and schedulability analysis (including multiprocessor systems) and cyber-physical systems. CISTER senior researchers have been consistently publishing and participating in the most reputed scientific events in the concerned scientific areas, as PC Chairs, General Chairs, PC members, Track Chairs, WiP Chairs, Industry Chairs or Publicity Chairs. We highlight the following series of top-ranked scientific events: RTSS, ECRTS, RTAS, RTCSA, ICDCS, EMSOFT, SRDS or OPODIS. The Unit has been actively and consistently involved in relevant industry driven EU projects and recently engaged a long-term (2007-2011) research framework on "Networked Sensor, Communication and Decision Systems" with the Carnegie-Mellon University (CMU).
