Call For Papers


The 15th Annual Workshop on
Operating Systems Platforms for Embedded Real-Time Applications
(OSPERT 2019)

July 9, 2019
Stuttgart, Germany

in conjunction with ECRTS'19

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’18 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 (short papers and full workshop papers).

See for a
detailed description of the different contribution formats.


Submission deadline: April 23, 2019 (23:59 GMT-12)
Notification of Acceptance: May 14, 2019
Final submissions: May 29, 2019
Workshops: July 9, 2019
ECRTS'19: July 10-12, 2019


OSPERT'19 is open to all topics related to providing a reliable and
efficient operating environment 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.),
and on the other hand there are also increasing demands in terms of
scalability, flexibility, isolation, adaptivity, reconfigurability,
predictability, serviceability, and certifiability, to name a few.
Further, while special-purpose RTOSs continue to be used for many
embedded applications, real-time services are also increasingly
introduced and used in general-purpose operating systems, 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 scope of embedded OS and middleware
specifications such as AUTOSAR.

OSPERT'19 is dedicated to the advances in RTOS technology required to
address these trends. As such, areas of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following topics:

- Case studies and experience reports
- Consolidation of real-time and best-effort work on embedded platforms
- 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


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

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

OSPERT 2019 is a satellite workshop of the 31th Euromicro Conference on
Real-Time Systems (ECRTS 2019), the premier European venue for
presenting research into the broad area of real-time and embedded
