Justification of the proposed topics

Today, real-time systems are embedded in a wide range of devices: consumer electronics, cars, wearable devices, sensor nodes, etc. Although research is very active for designing very low power platforms, the amount of energy that must be available on board still limits the lifespan of embedded systems and prevent their miniaturization. Alternative energy sources present in our environment could be exploited to achieve perpetual functioning without replacing or recharging batteries: this is energy harvesting. Building battery-operated or energy harvesting real-time systems faces many challenges due to timing constraints and energy limitations. In particular, we have to introduce energy-aware scheduling strategies that not only could improve real-time performance but also make a better utilization of energy.

This workshop will address the range of problems related to scheduling in real-time systems which have energy limitations. Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to, but not limited, the following topics:

  • Energy-aware scheduling algorithms (uniprocessor, multiprocessor, DPM, DVFS, etc.)

  • Schedulability Analysis

  • Response time Analysis for jobs with energy constraints

  • Scheduling for energy harvesting systems

  • Scheduling with both Quality of Service requirements and energy constraints

  • Practical considerations and real-time performance for autonomous real-time systems

Benefits of the workshop to the research community :

The objective of this workshop is to stimulate researchers and practitioners in embedded systems, real-time scheduling, energy management and all other relevant areas to present their research ideas and results for advancing the technologies in the field of autonomous real-time systems.

The workshop program will contain a session of talks and a discussion round on general future research developments of this area. The goal is also to identify particular research questions and potential collaborations.
