in conjunction with the
22nd Euromicro Intl Conference on Real-Time Systems
Brussels, Belgium, July 7-9, 2010
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 optimisation 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 flavours of Linux that provide support to time-sensitive applications.
This workshop was 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:
- Dynamic reconfiguration and upgrading;
- Support for component based development;
- Scalability, from very small scale embedded systems to full-fledged OSes;
- Flexible scheduling;
- Quality of Service guarantees;
- Real-Time on Linux;
- Interaction with reconfigurable hardware;
- Support for embedded multiprocessor architectures;
- Coordinated management of multiple resources;
- Security and fault tolerance for embedded real-time systems;
- Power-aware operating systems.
The workshop consisted of submitted papers as well as invited
presentations about academic state-of-the-art and industrial
state-of-practice within the area.
