Workshop topics and objectives
Starting from the 90s, the results of the real-time research community have been increasingly used in the software industry for the development and analysis of operating systems scheduling policies and network medium access control protocols.
Starting from the 90s, the results of the real-time research community have been increasingly used in the software industry for the development and analysis of operating systems scheduling policies and network medium access control protocols. Today, with the increasing complexity and distribution of real-time embedded systems, which triggered the advent of cyber-physical systems, the use of timing analysis techniques needs to be put forward as much as possible in the flow, using them as an aid to the design and changing the perspective: from the analysis of a given configuration to the synthesis of an optimal design.
Developers are today increasingly faced with design problems, including the optimal placement of functions, the optimal assignment of priorities (or time slots) to tasks and messages and the optimal packing of communication signals in frames.
Because of the extremely large design space, a trial-and-error approach , in which a configuration is manually defined, then analyzed for schedulability and then possibly improved or fixed is no more practical and synthesis and optimization methods are needed. The problem is of course relevant also for purely hardware (or programmable hardware) embedded designs, where the need for design synthesis has been established for quite some time now.
We seek original contributions of no more than 6 pages, using the same template for full conference papers (available at This page).
Submissions must cover original research material, not necessarily fully developed but with innovative and stimulating ideas, concepts and realizations.
Submitted papers should be sent before the deadline to any of the organizers using the email addresses shown below. At least one representative for each accepted paper
will need to be registered for the workshop and present in person her/his work.
