OSADL Project: Real Time Linux Workshops

Real Time Linux Foundation Workshops since 1999

Real Time Linux Workshops

1999 - 2000 - 2001 - 2002 - 2003 - 2004 - 2005 - 2006 - 2007 - 2008 - 2009 - 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013 - 20142015

13th Real-Time Linux Workshop from October 20 to 22 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague

                       13th Real-Time Linux Workshop

                            October 20-22, 2011
                     Faculty of Electrical Engineering
                    Czech Technical University in Prague
                           Prague, Czech Republic

Following the meetings of academics, developers and users of real-time
and embedded Linux at the previous 12 real-time Linux workshops held
world-wide (Vienna, Orlando, Milano, Boston, Valencia, Singapore, Lille,
Lanzhou, Linz, Guadalajara, Dresden and Nairobi), the Real-Time Linux
Workshop for 2011 will come to the Czech Technical University in Prague,
Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Dept. of Control Engineering -
academic OSADL member since 2008. The workshop will be held from October
20 to 22.

Embedded and real-time Linux are gaining traction in consumer
electronics and in industrial computing in breath-taking speed. Linux
runs a wide range of industrial applications including real-time and
safety-related systems. And the best is that everyone on earth has
access to this unparalleled pool of Open Source software as long as he
or she has access to the Internet. Nevertheless, this access is by no
means one-way - the return paths are from providing bug reports,
additions and ideas for enhancements and, finally, the very important
mechanism of peer review that makes Linux, and particularly real-time
Linux, as stable and innovative as it is.

In addition to sending patches and providing feedback via Internet,
direct mutual exchange between field engineers, system integrators, and
project managers, and hardware, driver, board support package and kernel
developers is needed. The Real Time Linux Workshop is successfully
serving this purpose since more than 10 years. We are looking forward to
meeting each other at another great Real Time Linux Workshop - this time
in Prague, Czech Republic.

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 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 variants
- 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
