Last year, I wrote two white papers for the company that I am currently working at. The first one was a very basic paper on real-time concepts and real-time in Linux. The second one was actually based on benchmarking a Debian kernel against a real-time Debian kernel on AMD’s Geode platforms – a low power, low cost system – and publishing its results.
Couple of months back I submitted the abstracts for these papers at the prestigious OSADL’s RTLWS 2009 (Real Time Linux Workshop) which is going to be held in Dresden, Germany from Sept. 28th – Sept. 30th. Last month, I got a notification saying that both the papers got accepted at the conference and was invited to present them. Here are the links for the abstract for both the papers that got accepted:
I will update this page with the links of the pdf paper once they get posted. Submitting these paper to these highly technical conferences forced me to learn LaTex – a typesetting tool – which I avoided learning during my Masters Degree in Computer Science at University of Oregon. In fact I had to learned the LaTex in less than 24 hours so that I can submit both the papers before the deadline.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to go to Germany to present these papers because of work related issues. May be some day I will!
