Workshop Goals

The Euromicro Technical Committee organizes a number of satellite events attached to its International Real-Time Systems Conferences. The Real-Time Networks (RTN) workshop is the eleventh in the series of workshops that started at the 2002 ECRTS conference. RTN focuses on the current technological challenges of developing communication infrastructures that are real-time, reliable, pervasive and interoperable.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together people from industry and academia that are interested in all aspects of real-time communications. The workshop provides a relaxed forum for participants to present and discuss new ideas, new research directions and to review current trends in this area. The workshop will be base on presentations and one/two keynote speeches that should encourage discussion among the attendees. As in previous years, registration fees for the workshop will be kept to a minimum.

Call for Papers (pdf format)

The workshop is seeking original
research and position papers dealing with hot topics in real-time networks. Innovative and/or controversial ideas are especially sought. Following the initiative previous editions, RTN 2011 once again encourages submissions on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and their applications. This year, we also encourage submissions on Applications of real-time networks to avionics. Prospective authors are also encouraged to address any issues about real-time, QoS and dependability in computer networks. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and applications

  • Real-time tracking

  • Cyber-physical systems, internet of things

  • Wireless technologies (IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee, WiMax, UWB, 6lowpan)

  • Communication protocols: (MAC and network layer issues, distributed scheduling, soft-core implementation etc)

  • Networked embedded systems, networked sensor systems and networked control systems

  • Infrastructures for ubiquitous and pervasive computing systems

  • Performance evaluation, simulation and modeling tools

  • Real-time network management and time synchronization

  • Quality of Service (QoS), dependable systems and safety systems

  • Domotics and building monitoring / control systems (fire, gas and water detection, access controls/security, HAVAC etc)

  • Robotics and real-time collaboration

  • Automotive and aerospace networks / applications (CAN, FlexRay, TTP, etc)

  • Implementation, experimentation and case Studies

Submission of papers

Submitted papers should follow the IEEE conference format and should not exceed 6 pages in length.

Submission should be made using the START conference management system.

All papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee. Accepted papers will be made available to all participants one week before the worksop so that contributions can be examined prior to the event. Each presentation session will have a "rapporteur", which enables the proceedings to be enriched with a short summary of each paper, brief details of the correspondin presentation, and the resulting discussions. Revised and extended version of the best papers may be considered for further publication after the workshop.
