International Workshop on
Real Time Software (RTS'07)

Wisla, Poland, October 16, 2007 

International Workshop on Real Time Software will be held within the framework of the International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Systems, and will be co-located with the XXIII Fall Meeting of Polish Information Processing Society.

Proliferation of computers interfacing with real world and controlling their environment requires careful investigation of approaches related to the specification, design, implementation, testing, and use of modern computer systems. Timing constraints, dependability, fault-tolerance, interfacing with the environment, reliability and safety constitute integral components of the software development process. Appropriate education of engineers developing such systems, working in interdisciplinary teams and in a global environment is of paramount importance.

In addition to traditional papers, we plan to organize a round table discussion forum on safety critical aspects of the education/training. We are soliciting brief one-page position papers on education and training of engineers developing dependable software intensive systems - presenting the views of academia and industry (in the submission clearly identity the "position paper" for the engineering education round table discussion). The accepted position papers will be a base for 10 minutes presentation followed by a discussion.

The workshop is planned around three main focus areas:

  • Real-Time Control
  • Safety, Reliability, and Dependability
  • Real-Time Education
Traditional Papers topics include but are not limited to:
  • Real-time system development
  • Scheduling
  • Safety
  • Reliability
  • Dependability
  • Fault-tolerance
  • Feedback control real-time scheduling
  • Hardware-software co-design
  • Standards and certification
  • Control software
  • Robotics and UAV
  • Software development tools
  • Model-based development
  • Automatic code generation
  • Real-time systems education
  • Related engineering curricula
  • Laboratory infrastructure
  • Internet-based support

Papers Submission

  • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
  • The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages (LNCS style). LNCS style templates are available here.
  • Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.
  • Accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings and published on a CD (ISSN 1896-7094)
  • Selected papers presented during the RTS'07 conference will be published as a Special Issue of the Journal of Automation, Mobile Robotics, and Intelligent
Authors of selected papers of the RTSCS 2006 Workshop (predecessor of RTS) were invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the following publications: AGH Computer Science and in Real-Time Journal (Germany).
