Call For Papers

(OSPERT 2017)

June 27th, 2017
Duprovnic, Croatia

co-located with ECRTS'17

OSPERT is a forum for researchers and engineers working on (and with)
Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOSs) to present recent advances in RTOS
technology, to promote new and existing initiatives and projects, and to
identify and discuss the challenges that lie ahead. The workshop, now in
its eleventh year, provides the RTOS community with an opportunity to
meet, to exchange ideas, to network, and to discuss future directions.

OSPERT??7 strives for an inclusive and diverse program and solicits a
range of varied contributions. To this end, the following types of
submissions are sought:

1. proposals for stand-alone presentations (including talks on open
problems, demos & tutorials, calls to action, etc.);
2. proposals for reports on empirical experiments (including replication
studies, preliminary experiments preceding a full conference
submission, and negative experience reports discussing failed
approaches); and
3. technical papers (including short work-in-progress papers and full
workshop papers).

See for a detailed description of
the different contribution formats.


Submission deadline: April 7, 2017
Acceptance notification: May 8, 2017
Final manuscript deadline: May 14, 2017
Workshop: June 27, 2017
ECRTS'16: June 28-30, 2017


OSPERT'17 is open to all topics related to providing reliable
operating environments for real-time and embedded applications.

Developers of embedded RTOSs are faced with many challenges arising
from two opposite needs: on the one hand there is a need for extreme
resource usage optimization (processor cycles, energy, network
bandwidth, etc.). On the other hand RTOSs have to meet increasing
demands in terms of scalability, flexibility, isolation, adaptivity,
reconfigurability, predictability, serviceability, and certifiability,
to name only a few. Moreover, while special-purpose RTOSs continue to
be used for many embedded applications, general-purpose operating
systems introduce an increasing amount of services that are real-time
and market pressures continue to blur the lines between the two
formerly distinct classes of operating systems. Notable examples are
the various flavors of real-time Linux that support time-sensitive
applications, the emergence of commercial and open-source real-time
hypervisors, as well as the growth in features and the widening of the
scope of embedded OS and middleware specifications such as AUTOSAR.

OSPERT'17 is dedicated to the advances in RTOS technology required to
address these trends. Our areas of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following topics:

- Case studies and experience reports
- Certification and verification of RTOSs and middleware
- Coordinated management of multiple resources
- Dynamic reconfiguration and upgrading
- Empirical comparisons and evaluations of RTOSs
- Flexible processor, memory, and I/O scheduling
- Interaction with reconfigurable hardware
- Operating system standards (e.g., AUTOSAR, ARINC, POSIX, etc.)
- Power and energy management
- Quality of Service guarantees
- Real-time Linux variants
- Real-time virtualization and hypervisors
- RTOSs for manycore platforms
- Scalability, from very small scale embedded systems to full-fledged RTOSs
- Security and fault tolerance for embedded real-time systems
- Support for multiprocessor architectures
- Support for component-based development
- Reports about negative results, unplanned outcomes and unforeseen


- Stand-alone presentation proposals: abstract (~500 words).

- Short WiP papers: up to three A4 pages, standard IEEE formatting.

- Full workshop papers: up to six A4 pages, standard IEEE formatting.

OSPERT 2017 is a satellite workshop of the 29th Euromicro Conference on
Real-Time Systems (ECRTS 2017), the premier European venue for
presenting research into the broad area of real-time and embedded
