Research on innovative RTOS architectures and services is a hot topic. Developers of Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) are faced with many challenges arising from two opposing needs: extreme optimization of resource usage (processor, energy, network bandwidth, etc.) and dynamic configuration, flexible scheduling, component-based development and deployment, etc. While real-time systems continue to be used in many small embedded applications, real-time services are being introduced and used in general- purpose operating systems. Notable examples are the various flavors Linux that provide support to time-sensitive applications.
This workshop is intended as a forum for researchers and practitioners of RTOS to discuss the recent advances in RTOS technology and the challenges that lie ahead.
Topics include but are not limited to:
The workshop will consist of submitted papers as well as invited presentations about academic state-of-the-art and industrial state-of-practice within the area.
Submission of Papers
People who would like to participate in this event are asked to submit a 6-10 page paper (PS or PDF) via the workshop submission system. Upon acceptance, a corrected version of the paper should be prepared and submitted. All papers will be made available to all participants a week before the workshop so that contributions can be examined prior to the workshop.
The workshop fosters a highly interactive format of presentations combined with ample time for in-depth discussions. Authors have the opportunity to submit a final version of their paper that includes issues raised at the workshop. The final papers will be published in a workshop proceedings, a National ICT Australia technical report.
To foster the workshop character the number of participants may be limited. There will be a small charge for workshop registration. (more details will be announced later). See the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems website http://feanor.sssup.it/ecrts07 for information on the venue, hotel reservations, and the city of Pisa.
