Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

37th edition of the IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium

on 29-11-2016

... IT-Porto in collaboration with the research unit Cister will host, this year, the 37th edition of the IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (, the flagship conference of the real-time systems community. Despite originally planned for Salvador da Baia in Brazil, the Technical Committee decided to relocate the conference following the epidemy of the Zika virus. Meanwhile the edition of 2017, for which Porto had applied, as assigned to Paris.

Thus, RTSS 2016 ( will take place from the 29th of November to 2nd of December of 2016, in the premises of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and of the Polytechynic Institute of Porto. More Information..

Over the last decade, rapid developments in quantum optomechanics have led to an increasing level of control of mechanical systems down to the quantum level using a variety of system architectures.
Possible applications range from quantum transducers, quantum memories and high-precision sensors to novel tests of the foundations of physics. In my talk, I will discuss recent developments in quantum optomechanics using trapped dielectric particles, the potential of using photonic crystals for particle trapping and control as well as developments towards future tests of the foundations of physics.
