Following the meetings of developers and users at the previous 9 successful real-time Linux workshops held in Vienna, Orlando, Milano, Boston, and Valencia, Singapur, Lille, Lanzhou, and Linz the Real-Time Linux Workshop for 2008 will come to Mexico.



Following the meetings of developers and users at the previous 9 successful real-time Linux workshops, the Real Time Linux Workshop for 2008 will come to Mexico, to be held at the Centro Universitario del Norte, University of Guadalajara.

Embedded and real-time Linux is continuously growing player in the embedded appliance market world wide notably initiatives in the industrial world have been moving embedded and real-time linux into automation/control safety related applications and into industrial applications with high security demands alongside typical control capabilities. Embedded systems in automation/control, measurement and robotics have been continuously moving towards 32bit systems, opening the door for the use of full featured OS like GNU/Linux on COTS based systems. With real-time capabilities being a common demand for embedded systems the soft and hard real-time variants are an important extension to the versatile GNU/Linux GPOS.

Authors are invited to submit original work dealing with general topics related to real-time Linux research, experiments and case studies, as well as issues of integration of real-time and embedded Linux. A special focus will be on industrial applications and safety related systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Real-time programming models and methods in mainstream-Linux
  • Modifications and variants of the GNU/Linux operating system extending it's real-time capabilities
  • Contributions to real-time Linux variants, drivers and extensions.
  • User-mode real-time concepts, implementation and experience
  • Real-time Linux applications, in academia, research and industry
  • Real-time Linux in measurement and data-acquisition systems
  • Linux/real-time Linux in safety-related systems
  • Signal processing with Linux/real-time Linux.
  • Work in progress reports, covering recent developments
  • Educational material on real-time Linux.
  • Tools for embedding Linux or real-time Linux and embedded real-time Linux applications
  • RTOS core concepts, RT-safe synchronization mechanisms
  • Analysis and Benchmarking methods and results of real-time GNU/Linux variants.
  • 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


The agenda (in PDF format) is available here.


Due to the difficulty for many of the visitors from foreign countries to arrive for themselves to the city of Colotlan because the lack of airport, the 10th RTLWS will begin the first day of activities (Wed, Oct 29) in the headquarters of the University of Guadalajara in the city of Guadalajara.

That day we will have the opening ceremony, a plenary keynote and the welcome lunch. At the end of these events we will take to all participants in private buses to the city of Colotlan to continue with the activities of the following days in the Centro Universitario del Norte.

It´s important when you plan your trip to arrive and depart from the city of Guadalajara. This city has one of the busiest airports in the country and has a huge network of roads and buses that connect to any city in México. The airport of Guadalajara has direct flights to and from many cities of México and Unites States. If you flight from Europe, South America or Asia there are many flights to Guadalajara with connection in Mexico City or in many cities of the United States.

We strongly recommend arriving to Guadalajara at least one day before the first day of activities of the RTLWS to attend the opening ceremony and catch the transport that will take you to the city of Colotlan on time.

Colotlán, Jalisco

Universidad de Guadalajara, Centro Universitario del Norte

RTLWS will also coincide with a special Mexican holiday called the day of the dead (Día de los Muertos). There will be many beautiful displays, and this will be a great oportunity to see a little Mexican culture. See the following link for more information:

We will have more information about your trip to México and all you need to know of the 10th RTLWS 2008.

Accommodation, Transport and Food

Trying to make easier all trip services for you, the staff of the University of Guadalajara in conjunction with the touristic service providers have prepared a pack that includes all transport, food and lodging in the days of the RTLWS in the cities of Guadalajara and Colotlan.

The pack of trip services will include:

Acommodation on single or double occupancy

* Transport between all the activities of the RTWLS, starting in the airport of Guadalajara

* Food (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) all the days of the RTWLS

* Special cultural and artistic events and expositions

The price of the pack will be published soon with all detail but we advance that will cost between € 150 and € 200 approximately ($ 210 and $ 280 US dollars) depending of the room type.

There are three main Hotels in Colotlán and some other smaller ones. Due to the lack of English speakers at these Hotels, and the limited space, reservations will be handled through the University of Guadalajara staff. We will need a copy of your airline reservations faxed or emailed in order to complete the reservation. The prices will be under 30 euros per night. We will also try to find alternate accommodations for students.

If you arriving early, please contact Mr. Don Carr
