                       18th Real Time Linux Workshop and
                          7th Real Time Linux Summit
                           October 19 to 21, 2017
                      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 17 real-time Linux workshops held
   world-wide - the Real Time Linux Workshop will come back to the  Czech
   Technical  University  in  Prague,  Czech  Republic  and  is held from
   October 19 to 20, 2017  followed  by  the  Real-Time  Linux Summit,  a
   discussion focused single-track event on October 21.

   Real-time  systems have  evolved over the past decades in a relatively
   calm manner - performance has increased, one can say dramatically, but
   the  main  paradigms  were  pretty  stable since the mid 80s. This has
   changed  now.  With  the  real-time  preemption  patch set moving into
   mainline there  is nothing left to do - all problems solved ... or not
   quite yet.

   Developing  a rigorous theory is important - relating these to reality
   is  equally  important.  This is where  CTU's research  group has much
   experience to offer. The focus on system properties be it real-time or
   security  and extending this into functional safety in the past years,
   form a good background for hosting this gathering of real-life systems

   Research interests of  our host, Prof.  Hanzalek and his group, focus,
   among others, on:
     * Real-time systems and networking
     * Combinatorial optimization and time-triggered scheduling
     * Autonomous cars and other automotive applications
     * Open-source (not "only" GNU/Linux)

   FLOSS  in  embedded systems is well established, ranging from consumer
   electronics  to  network  devices  and  increasingly industrial appli-
   cations including safety related systems.  The technological resources
   suitable for high-availability, real-time, and safety critical systems
   have been continuously expanding and improving - allowing to cover the
   entire development life cycle of industrial projects  based  on  open-
   source tools.

   At the core of this  development  is the availability of stable opera-
   ting systems with reliable real-time  properties.  Extending  and  im-
   proving  these  real-time properties of open-source RTOS is continuous
   research and development  effort  that  OSADL documents in the form of
   the  annual  Real Time Linux Workshop together with Linux Foundation's
   annual Real Time Linux Summit.

   The below  call  for  paper exclusively  refers to the Real Time Linux
   Workshop.  The Real Time Linux Summit is an add-on event to RTLWS held
   on  October 21, focused  on the real-time preemption patch set and the
   activities around it which has a separate call for presentation.

   Authors  from  regulatory  bodies,  academics, industry as well as the
   user community  are  invited  to submit  original  work  dealing  with
   general topics related to open-source  and  free-software  based real-
   time systems research, experiments and case studies, as well as issues
   of  integration  of  open-source real-time and embedded OS. A  special
   focus will be on industrial  case  studies and safety related systems.
   Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
     * FLOSS based real-time system solutions
     * Modifications  and  variants  of  the  GNU/Linux  operating system
       extending its real-time capabilities
     * Contributions to real-time Linux variants, drivers and extensions
     * Tools for the verification and validation of real-time properties
     * 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
     * RTOS core concepts, synchronization, IPC  mechanisms  or  resource
     * Analysis   and  benchmarking  methods  and  results  of  real-time
       FLOSS and GNU/Linux variants including comparisons
     * Debugging  techniques  and  tools,  both  for  code  and  temporal
       debugging   of   core   RTOS  components,  drivers  and  real-time
     * Real-time related extensions to development environments
     * Real-time and virtualization
   We  invite  you  to  either  submit  an  abstract  as  proposal  for a
   Work-in-Progress (WiP)  or an abstract  as proposal for a  full paper.
   Authors of WiP presentations will get the opportunity to present their
   work in a 30-minute talk, authors of a full paper will be awarded with
   a 60-minute time slot.  When submitting an abstract as  proposal for a
   full paper  authors confirm that  they are willing  to prepare a paper
   adhering to the form defined by the RTLWS paper template, which can be
   downloaded at,  upon acceptance of the
   proposal and to submit it  meeting the paper submission deadline given
   below. A detailed  description of the  editing and formatting  process
   will be  provided along  with  the acceptance  notification email. The
   full paper will be included in the RTLWS18 proceedings.

   Please submit your abstract proposal at:

   Important dates:
     * June 30, 2017 Abstract submission deadline
     * July 21, 2017 Notification of acceptance
     * September 29, 2017 Paper submission deadline (full papers only)
