3rd International Workshop on Analysis Tools and Methodologies for
Embedded and Real-time Systems (WATERS 2012)
July 10th, 2012, Pisa, Italy
In conjunction with ECRTS 2012

"Today, scientists who write and release code often get little
recognition for their work. Someone who has created a terrific
open source software program that's used by thousands of other
scientists is likely to get little credit from peers. ``It’s just
software'' is the response many scientists have to such work.
From a career point of view, the author of the code would have
been better off spending their time writing a few minor papers
that no one reads. This is crazy: a lot of scientific knowledge
is far better expressed as code than in the form of a scientific

This comment by the famous scientist Michael Nielsen in his latest
book "Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science" is even
more valid for computer science, and in particular in the research
area of real-time and embedded systems.

In fact, the comparison among results achieved by different research
groups becomes non-trivial or impossible due to the lack of common
tools or methodologies by means of which the comparison is done. For
example, different authors use different algorithms for generating
random task sets, different application traces when simulating dynamic
real-time systems, different simulation engines when simulating
scheduling algorithms.

Research in the field of real-time and embedded systems would greatly
benefit from the availability of well-engineered, possibly open tools,
simulation frameworks and data sets which may constitute a common
metrics for evaluating simulation or experimental results in the
area. Also, it would be nice to have a possibly wide set of reusable
data sets or behavioural models coming from realistic industrial
use-cases over which to evaluate the performance of novel
algorithms. Availability of such items would increase the possibility
to compare novel techniques in dealing with problems already tackled
by others from the multifaceted viewpoints of effectiveness, overhead,
performance, applicability, etc.

The ambitious goal of the International Workshop on Analysis Tools and
Methodologies for Embedded and Real-time Systems is to start creating
a common ground and a community to collect methodologies, software
tools, best practices, data sets, application models, benchmarks and
any other way to improve comparability of results in the current
practice of research in real-time and embedded systems. People from
industry are welcome to contribute with realistic data or methods
coming from their own experience.

The 2012 edition focuses particularly on interoperability
aspects among tools for embedded and real-time systems, including such
issues as: formats and standards for the description of
real-time and distributed systems, and for the representation of their
properties; interoperability between different execution
models; issues related to information loss and semantics
differences when switching from one tool, representation or mode
to another; use-cases, scenarios and hands-on experiences
showing coverage of the development life-cycle from requirements to
implementation throughout a chain of different tools; use of
complementary tools for modelling or analysing different
aspects of the same system.

The workshop seeks original contributions on methods and tools for
real-time and embedded systems analysis, simulation, modelling and
benchmarking. We look for papers describing well-engineered, highly
reusable, possibly open, tools that can be used by other researchers.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Simulation of real-time, distributed and embedded systems
* Simulation of multi-core, many-core and massively parallel and
distributed systems
* Modelling, analysis and simulation of Operating Systems components
* Tools and methodologies for real-time analysis
* Instrumentation of Operating Systems
* Tracing methods and overhead analysis
* Power consumption models and experimental data for real-time
power-aware systems
* Middleware components and mechanisms for distributed infrastructures
supporting real-time and QoS-aware Cloud Computing applications
* Realistic case studies and reusable data sets
* Comparative evaluation of existing algorithms

Submitted papers should follow the IEEE conference format and should
not exceed 6 pages in length. Papers may be submitted in either PDF or
Postscript format. The papers will be reviewed by the workshop
Program Committee. All accepted papers will be made available to all
participants one week before the workshop so that contributions can be
examined prior to the event. Instructions on how to submit papers will
be available on the workshop website:

* Submission deadline: April, 25th 2012
* Acceptance notification: May, 18th 2012
* Camera-ready due: June, 19th 2012
