About the Conference

The 18th EUROMICRO Conference on Real-Time Systems (ECRTS'06) is a forum aimed at covering state-of-the-art research and development in real-time computing. Papers on all aspects of real-time systems are welcome. These include, but are not limited to:

APPLICATIONS: consumer electronics; multimedia and entertainment; process control; avionics, aerospace; automotive; telecommunications.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND HARDWARE: communication networks; embedded devices; hardware/software co-design; power-aware and other resource-constrained techniques; systems on chip; time engines and time synchronization; wireless sensor networks.

SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGIES: compiler support; component-based approaches; middleware and distribution technologies; programming languages operating systems.

SYSTEM DESIGN AND ANALYSIS: modelling and formal methods; probabilistic analysis for RT systems; quality of service support; reliability, security and survivability in RT systems; scheduling and schedulability analysis; worst-case execution time analysis; validation techniques.



Work-in-Progress Session: Pursuing a successful tradition in the ECRTS series, a special Work in Progress (WiP) session will be organised. This session is mainly intended for presentation of on-going and recent work.
Satellite Workshops: A set of Satellite Workshops focusing on hot topics will be organised. These include the continuation of the already successful real-time networks (RTN) and worst-case execution time (WCET) workshops, the fourth and fifth editions, respectively, as well as novel topics, such as Real-time and Control (RTC) Separate call for papers will be issued later for both WiP and satellite workshops. Please visit the website at http://ecrts06.tudos.org/ later for further information. The main conference will include three Keynote Sessions, one per day, which will be announced well in advance to the event. In this year's edition, besides the Best Paper Award, a selection of best papers will be invited for a Special Issue of an International journal (more precise information to be made available later on).
