Eighth Real-Time Linux Workshop

October 12-15, 2006
Lanzhou University - SISE
Tianshui South Road 222
Lanzhou, Gansu 730000


Following the meetings of developers and users at the previous 7
successful real-time Linux workshops held in Vienna, Orlando, Milano,
Boston, and Valencia, Singapore, Lille, the Real-Time Linux Workshop
for 2006 will come back to Asia again, to be held at the School for
Information Science and Engineering, Lanzhou University, in Lanzhou

Embedded and real-time Linux is rapidly gaining traction in the Asia
Pacific region. Embedded systems in both automation/control and
entertainment moving to 32/64bit systems, opening the door for the use
of full featured OS like GNU/Linux on COTS based systems. With
real-time capabilities being a common demand for embedded systems the
soft and hard real-time variants are an important extension to the
versatile GNU/Linux GPOS.

Authors are invited to submit original work dealing with general
topics related to real-time Linux research, experiments and case
studies, as well as issues of integration of real-time and embedded
Linux. A special focus will be on industrial case studies. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

* Modifications and variants of the GNU/Linux operating system
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,
* 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,
* 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.
