Call For Papers

18th Real Time Linux Workshop
7th Real Time Linux Summit
October 19 to 21, 2017
Faculty of Electrical Engineering
Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic

Following the meetings of academics, developers and users of real-time and embedded Linux at the previous 17 real-time Linux workshops held world-wide - the Real-Time Linux Workshop for 2017 will come back to the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic, and is held from October 19th to 20th, 2017 followed by the Real-Time Linux Summit 2017, a discussion focused single track event on October 21st.

Real Time systems have evolved over the past decades in a relatively calm manner - performance has increased, one can say dramatically, but the main paradigms were pretty stable since the mid 80s. This has changed now. With the real-time PREEMPT_RT patch set moving into mainline there is nothing left to do - all problems solved… or not quite yet.

Developing a rigorous theory is important - relating these to reality is equally important. This is where CTU's research group has much experience to offer. The focus on system properties be it real-time or security and extending this into functional safety in the past years,form a good background for hosting this gathering of real-life systems developers.

Research interests of our host, Prof. Hanzalek and his group, focus, among others, on:

Real-time systems and networking
Combinatorial optimization and time-triggered scheduling
Autonomous cars and other automotive applications
Open-source (not “only” GNU/Linux)

FLOSS in embedded systems is well established, ranging from consumer electronics to network devices and increasingly industrial applications including safety related systems. The technological resources suitable for high-availability, real-time, and safety critical systems have been continuously expanding and improving - allowing to cover the entire development life cycle of industrial projects based on Open-Source tools.

At the core of this development is the availability of stable operating systems with reliable real-time properties. Extending and improving these real-time properties of open-source RTOS is continuous research and development effort that OSADL documents in the form of the annual Real Time Linux Workshop together with Linux Foundation's annual Real-Time Linux Summit.

The below call for paper exclusively refers to the Real Time Linux Workshop. The Real-Time Linux Summit is an add-on event to RTLWS held on Oct. 21st, focused on the real-time preemption patch set and the activities around it, which has a separate Call for Presentations.

Authors from regulatory bodies, academics, industry as well as the user-community are invited to submit original work dealing with general topics related to open-source and free-software based real-time systems research, experiments and case studies, as well as issues of integration of open-source real-time and embedded OS. A special focus will be on industrial case studies and safety related systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

FLOSS based real-time system solutions
Modifications and variants of the GNU/Linux operating system extending its real-time capabilities
Contributions to real-time Linux variants, drivers and extensions
Tools for the verification and validation of real-time properties
User-mode real-time concepts, implementation and experience
Real-time Linux applications, in academia, research and industry
Safety related FLOSS systems
Work in progress reports, covering recent developments
Educational material on real-time Linux
RTOS core concepts, synchronization, IPC mechanisms or resource allocators.
Analysis and Benchmarking methods and results of real-time FLOSS and GNU/Linux variants including comparisons
Debugging techniques and tools, both for code and temporal debugging of core RTOS components, drivers and real-time applications
Real-time related extensions to development environments
Real-time and virtualization

We invite you to either submit an abstract as proposal for a Work-in-Progress (WiP) or an abstract as proposal for a full paper. Authors of WiP presentations will get the opportunity to present their work in a 30-minute talk, authors of a full paper will be awarded with a 60-minute time slot. When submitting an abstract as proposal for a full paper authors confirm that they are willing to prepare a paper adhering to the form defined by the paper template upon acceptance of the proposal and to submit it meeting the paper submission deadline given below. A detailed description of the editing and formatting process will be provided along with the acceptance notification email. The full paper will be included in the RTLWS18 proceedings.

Important dates

June 2, 2017 Abstract submission deadline
July 14, 2017 Notification of acceptance
October 6, 2017, Final paper submission deadline (full paper proposals)

Please submit your abstract proposal using the submission page
