Hi All ! 14th Real Time Linux Workshop October 18-20, 2012 Department of Computer Science University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Chapel Hill USA Following the meetings of academics, developers and users of real-time and embedded Linux at the previous 13 Real Time Linux Workshops held world-wide (Vienna, Orlando, Milano, Boston, Valencia, Singapore, Lille, Lanzhou, Linz, Guadalajara, Dresden, Nairobi and Prague) - the Real Time Linux Workshop for 2012 will come to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the US. It will be held from October 18 to 20, 2012. Rationale Real-time systems have evolved over the past decades in a relatively calm manner - performance has increased, one can say dramatically, but the main paradigms were pretty stable since the mid 80s. This has changed now. The big change that is moving into the embedded field is multicore - and that is not an adaptation of our current methods but a re-design from scratch in quite a few cases - notably of our way of thinking about real-time. Precisely this area of real-time embedded multicore has been a long-time focus of James Anderson's Real-Time Systems Group from the Department of Computer Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, covering a wide range from multicore RT, embedded applications, testing to certification issues. OSADL and the Real Time Linux Foundation Working Group gratefully acknowledge Prof. Anderson's offer to host this year's workshop at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Linux in embedded systems is well established, ranging from consumer electronics to network devices and increasingly industrial applications including safety related systems. The technological resources suitable for high-availability, real-time, and safety critical systems have been continuously expanding and improving - allowing to cover the entire development life cycle of industrial projects based on open-source tools. At the core of this development is the availability of stable operating systems with reliable real-time properties. Extending and improving these real-time properties of Open Source RTOS is continuous research and development effort that OSADL documents in the form of the annual Real-Time Linux Workshop. Call for papers Authors from regulatory bodies, academics, industry as well as the user-community are invited to submit original work dealing with general topics related to Open Source and Free Software based real-time systems research, experiments and case studies, as well as issues of integration of open-source real-time and embedded OS. A special focus will be on industrial case studies and safety related systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Modifications and variants of the GNU/Linux operating system extending its real-time capabilities, - Contributions to real-time Linux variants, drivers and extensions, - Tools for the verification and validation of real-time properties, - User-mode real-time concepts, implementation and experience, - Real-time Linux applications, in academia, research and industry, - Safety related FLOSS systems - Work in progress reports, covering recent developments, - Educational material on real-time Linux, - RTOS core concepts, RT-safe synchronization mechanisms, - RT-safe IPC mechanisms for RT and non RT components, - Analysis and Benchmarking methods and results of real-time GNU/Linux variants, - Debugging techniques and tools, both for code and temporal debugging of core RTOS components, drivers and real-time applications, - Real-time related extensions to development environments, - Linux platform concepts and design. Abstract submission If you wish to present a paper at the workshop, please submit an abstract using the submission page at https://www.osadl.org/RTLWS14-Abstract.submission-form.0..... Final paper to be included into the RTLWS14 Proceedings Upon acceptance of an abstract by the RTLWS14 Program Committee, the author will be invited to submit a full paper in a form defined by https://www.osadl.org/paper.tgz. A detailed description of the editing and formatting process will be provided along with the notification email.
