The Euromicro Technical Committee has organized a number of satellite events attached to its 23rd International Real-Time Systems Conference. This workshop was the 11th in the series of WCET workshops that started at the 2001 Euromicro conference. The workshop has been organized and funded by the ArtistDesign Network of Excellence.
The workshop proceedings will be published in two versions, a preliminary and a final. First, there will be proceedings given to the attendees of the workshop on July 5. After the workshop, paper authors will be encouraged to make final revisions of their papers, taking into account the exchange of ideas that took place during their presentations. Then, a second and final version of the proceedings will come out during fall 2011. We plan to have both print and electronic versions of the final proceedings. Online versions of the papers will be available via Schloss Dagstuhl, with open access, in their OASics series. The printed proceedings will also been published by the Austrian Computer Society (OCG)
The goal of the workshop is to bring together people from academia, tool vendors and users in industry who are interested in all aspects of timing analysis for real-time systems. The workshop fosters a highly interactive format with ample time for in-depth discussions. It provides a relaxed forum to present and discuss new ideas, new research directions, and to review current trends in this area. The presentations will be kept short to leave plenty of time for interaction of attendees.
The topics of the workshop include any issue related to timing analysis, in particular:
Different approaches to WCET computation
Flow analysis for WCET, loop bounds, feasible paths
Low-level timing analysis, modeling and analysis of processor features
Strategies to reduce the complexity of WCET analysis
Integration of WCET and schedulability analysis
Methods and benchmarks for WCET analysis evaluation
Case studies, and industrial experience of WCET analysis
Measurement-based WCET analysis
Tools for WCET analysis
Program and processor design for timing predictability
Integration of WCET analysis in development processes
Compiler optimizations for worst-case paths
WCET analysis for multi-threaded and multi-core systems
WCET analysis in the academic curriculum
Statements which are innovative, controversial, or that present new approaches are specially sought.
There is a charge for workshop registration. See the website of the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems
for information on registration, the venue, hotel reservations, and the city of Porto.
We urge you to register early to ensure that you get a copy of the proceedings that will be distributed at the start of the workshop.
