Twelfth Real-Time Linux Workshop on October 25 to 27, in Nairobi, Kenya

                      Twelfth Real-Time Linux Workshop

                            October 25-27, 2010
                           Strathmore University

Following the meetings of academics, developers and users of real-time
and embedded Linux at the previous eleven real-time Linux workshops held
world-wide (Vienna, Orlando, Milano, Boston, Valencia, Singapore, Lille,
Lanzhou, Linz, Guadalajara and Dresden) - the Real-Time Linux Workshop
for 2010 will come to Africa for the first time. It will be held at the
Strathmore University in Nairobi, Kenya, from October 25 through 27,
preceded by one week public seminars.


Embedded and real-time Linux have been rapidly gaining traction in
consumer electronics and made significant advance into industrial
computing. Today, Linux runs a wide range of industrial applications
including real-time and safety-related systems. This vast pool of
technology not only has the potential to improve the capabilities of
computer systems in general but also has the ability to include new
regions of this world into this creative process. These regions have
been excluded so far due to the economic constraints involved with
proprietary development models. Opening the door for the creative
potential of engineers in Africa, exchanging ideas between diverse
technical cultures is an essential contribution to advancing the
capabilities of Open Source.

Call for papers

Authors from academics, industry as well as the user community are
invited to submit papers on original work related to Open Source
real-time systems. Such work may deal with general topics related to
Open Source and free-software based real-time systems but also with
research, experiments and case studies, as well as with issues of
integration of Open Source real-time and embedded systems. A special
focus will be on industrial case studies and safety-related systems.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 * Modifications and variants of the GNU/Linux operating systems
   extending its 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
 * Safety-related FLOSS systems
 * 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
 * RT-safe interaction of RT and non RT components
 * IPC mechanisms in RTOS
 * Analysis and benchmarking methods and results of real-time GNU/Linux
 * Real-time networking with COTS
 * Medical applications using COTS and FLOSS
 * 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
