ReTiMiCS 2013 : 1st workshop on Real-Time Mixed Criticality Systems
Call For Papers
The 1st workshop on Real-Time Mixed Criticality Systems (ReTiMiCS
2013) will be a workshop to discuss real-time mixed criticality
systems with one keynote and thematic sessions. The format of this
workshop encourages interaction between participants to promote a
spirit of co-operation and collaboration within the real-time
scheduling community. Mixed Criticality Systems (MiCS) are new
systems trying to combine safety-critical and consumer systems on the
same platform. Consumer market redefines embedded systems and is
source of hardware evolutions (multi-core, many-core systems,
distributed systems). Safety-critical systems (automotive, aerospace)
should take advantage of those new platforms to produce robust and
predictable systems at competitive price. Safety-critical and consumer
application are usually run on distinct systems. Research on
Mixed-Criticality Systems aims at closing the gap between those two
A keynote speech on Mixed Criticality Systems will be given by Sanjoy
Baruah, University of North Carolina, USA.
Research challenges for MiCS are numerous. Among them, this workshop
invites submissions in the areas such as, but not limited to:
* Integration of critical and non critical applications on real-time multiprocessor systems.
New concepts for hardware/software architectures (hypervisor, operating systems, schedulability
conditions, formal methods, ...)
* High performance computing with MiCs. By-pass Moore's law by handling power consumption,
heat dissipation limitations. Cache scheduling and related issues (CRPD), parallel scheduling,
* Security and dependability issues with MiCS. How to conceive systems of different criticality
having to cooperate ?
* Application of MiCS to new domains: mobile telecommunication networks,
energy management systems, sensor networks with messages of different criticalities
* Data Management in shared memory used for mixed critical applications.
Articles for ReTiMiCS 2013 must be written in English, and not exceed
six A4 pages in length in double column, 10pt format, including
relevant references. IEEE Latex or Word templates should be used for
the article submission:
Submissions should be made electronically, in PDF of DOC format, on
the easychair submission system:
Authors of accepted papers are expected to give a presentation of
their papers during the workshop. Instructions for preparing final
copy and presentations will be given when the paper is accepted. The
workshop will also include a keynote speaker (to be announced).
ReTiMiCS 2013 papers will be published in seminar booklet proceeding.
Workshop papers submission deadline: May 31st
Workshop papers notification of acceptance: June 23rd
Camera ready deadline: July 7th
