Following the meetings of developers and users at the previous ten successful Real Time Linux Workshops held in Vienna, Orlando, Milano, Boston, Valencia, Singapore, Lille, Lanzhou, Linz and Guadalajara, the Real Time Linux Workshop 2009 will come to Germany.


The Real Time Linux Foundation Working Group is glad to announce that the Eleventh Real Time Linux Workshop will be held in Dresden, Germany. Our thanks go to Prof. Hermann Härtig, chair of operating systems, and the TU Dresden for hosting the workshop in Dresden at the Faculty of Computer Science from September 28 to 30, 2009.

Embedded and real-time Linux is a 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 32-bit systems, opening the door for the use of full-featured operating systems like GNU/Linux on COTS based systems. With real-time capabilities being a common demand for embedded systems, the various real-time variants are important features of 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 its real-time capabilities
  • Contributions to real-time Linux variants, drivers and extensions
  • User-mode real-time concepts, implementation and experiences
  • 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

About the Faculty of Computer Science
With more than 2500 students, the Faculty of Computer Science of the TU Dresden is one of Germany's largest education centers in the field of computer science. The faculty offers a total of twelve different types of final qualifications such as diploma, Master's degree, Bachelor's degree and a degree in teacher education studies. In addition to Computer Science and Media and Computer Science, there are five other courses to choose from. These include two Master's degree programs which are held in English.

A bit of history
The roots of Computer Science at the TU Dresden go back to the early days of electronic computing. Researchers from Dresden under the leadership of Prof. N. J. Lehmann were among the first to develop drum storages and digital electronic computers. Founded in 1828, the TU Dresden is one of the oldest established technical universities in Germany with a strong emphasis on research and international cooperation. In 1990, the Faculty of Computer Science was established in its present form. Today, 28 professors and lecturers as well as more than 260 staff members work at its six institutes.
