The increasing complexity of real-time embedded systems demands
advanced methodologies that can facilitate their design and
analysis, while assuring correctness, real-time, and performance
requirements. Promising is a paradigm of compositional theories and
technologies that allows for the decomposition of a complex system
into simpler pieces (components), as well as the integration of
individual components to achieve system functions collectively,
while preserving the principles of
- compositionality: the system-level (global) property can be
established from composing component-level (local) properties, and
- composability: the properties established and validated for
components in isolation hold also after the components are
assembled into the system.
Such a composition paradigm calls for new component concepts and
composition mechanisms that can support various key characteristics
of real-time embedded systems, such as timeliness, safety, security,
quality of service, and adaptability.

Topics of interest for the workshop are all of those associated with
compositional theory and technology for real-time embedded systems,
including (but not limited to):

- COMPOSITIONAL SCHEDULING THEORIES: compositional schedulability
and execution-time analysis; horizontal/vertical composition of
various real-time resource management schemes (e.g., CPU, memory,
power, thermal); composition of cluster-based multicore or
multiprocessor scheduling.

- COMPONENT MODEL AND INTERFACE: component model for real-time
embedded systems; interface theory and development for real-time
embedded systems; component technology for real-time embedded

- COMPOSITIONAL FORMAL METHODS: compositional techniques for
modeling and formal methods; composition of validation and
verification techniques.

- COMPOSITIONAL DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS: composition of network protocol
layers for real-time communications; compositional end-to-end delay
analysis in distributed systems.

- COMPOSITION OF POLICIES AND SERVICES: composition of system layers
(e.g., OS, middleware) for real-time embedded systems; composition
of performance policies and techniques for adaptive or
reconfigurable real-time embedded systems; composition of services
(e.g., robustness, privacy, safety, security) for real-time embedded


We encourage the submission of position papers that describe the
state-of-the-art, present work-in-progress, and suggest open issues.
Submissions can be in any format but should be in four to eight
pages including references and figures -- papers exceeding eight
pages will not be reviewed. All submissions should be in PostScript
(PS) or PDF.

Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be accepted,
at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at
the workshop. Submissions should be sent to the workshop organizers
at and Please, visit
the workshop website for more details.
