Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ISORC 2020 conference is going virtual on the same dates of May 19-21, 2020. Please check the Program Schedule, and the Registration link is online now.
Please join the virtual ISORC 2020 conference via Zoom Link.
The ISORC sessions are complimentary for non-authors, but each session has a cap of 500.
Our hearts and thoughts remain with those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide.

IEEE ISORC was founded in 1998 (with its first meeting in Kyoto, Japan) to address research into the application of real-time object-oriented distributed technology. Since then, ISORC has continually evolved to meet the latest challenges faced by researchers and practitioners in the real-time domain, with an emphasis on object-, component- and service-oriented systems and solutions.

ISORC is a single-track conference, with a lively community. We have hosted a number of associated workshops, and are proud of our spirit of openness. We seek to encourage diverse views and new approaches to all Real-Time Issues and Challenges for novel applications and systems in RT computing issues.

Accepted papers from ISORC 2020 will be invited for submission to a Special Issue of a Journal that will be advertised in short.

Papers are to be submitted through the HotCRP system.

Title: Demystifying Amazon DynamoDB: Fast and flexible NoSQL database service for any scale

Amazon DynamoDB is a hyper-scale, NoSQL database designed for internet-scale real-time applications, such as serverless web apps, mobile backends, and microservices. DynamoDB provides developers with the security, availability, durability, performance, and manageability they need to run mission-critical workloads at extreme scale. In this session, we dive deep into the underpinnings of DynamoDB and how we run a fully managed, nonrelational database service that is used by more than 100,000 customers. We will go over the details to understand how DynamoDB adapts to customer workloads in near real-time. We will also cover some of the foundational features such as DynamoDB streams that provide near real-time delivery of de-duplicated event logs @scale, which enables key features such as global replication and point in time restores.


Akshat Vig is a Principal Engineer in Amazon Web Services (AWS) database services group focusing on NoSQL databases. Akshat has contributed to NoSQL products building key parts of services such as SimpleDB, DynamoDB, and Amazon Keyspaces. Akshat was one of the leading architects of DynamoDB Streams, DynamoDB Transactions, and DynamoDB Continuous Backups and Point in Time Restore. Akshat has served on numerous program committees. Before Amazon, Akshat has played a key role in building scalable infrastructure for a successful healthcare startup.
