  • Infrastructure and hardware for real-time systems: wired and wireless communication networks, fieldbuses, networked control systems, control/computing co-design, sensor networks, power-aware techniques.
  • Software technologies for real-time systems: compilers, programming languages, middleware and component-based technologies, operating systems, databases.
  • Applications: automotive, avionics, space, railways, telecommunications, process control, multimedia.


  • Keynote talk by Sebastian Fischmeister, University of Waterloo, Canada.
  • Special focus will be given to the topic of “Applying Formal Methods to Real-Time Systems Theory and Design”.
  • A selection of the best papers will be identified as outstanding papers; the authors of these papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the Springer Real-Time Systems journal.
  • Prizes will be awarded for best paper, best student paper, and best presentation.
