PURPOSE OF THE WORKSHOP

The purpose of WMC is to share new ideas, experiences and information about research and development of Mixed Criticality real-time systems.

THEMES

The workshop aims to bring together researchers working in fields relating to real-time systems with a focus on the challenges brought about by the integration of mixed criticality applications onto single-core, multi-core and many-core architectures. These challenges are cross-cutting. To advance rapidly, closer interaction is needed between the sub-communities involved in real-time operating systems / run-time environments / hypervisor, real-time scheduling, security, safety and timing analysis. The workshop aims to promote understanding of the fundamental problems that affect Mixed Criticality Systems (MCS) at all levels in the software/hardware stack and crucially the interfaces between them. The workshop will promote lively interaction, cross fertilisation of ideas, synergies, and closer collaboration across the breadth of the real-time community, as well as attracting industrialists from the aerospace, automotive and other industries with a specific interest in MCS. Original unpublished papers on all aspects of mixed criticality real-time systems are welcome. Themes include, but are not limited to:

  • Task and system models for MCS on single-core, multi-core, and many-core platforms.
  • Comparison between MCS models (Vestal, DAL / IMA, SIL / AUTOSAR, …).
  • Scheduling schemes and analyses for MCS, including the integration of appropriate models of overheads and delays.
  • Operating systems, hypervisors, run-time environments and support for MCS.
  • Communication on Network on Chip (NoC) in MCS
  • Analysis of worst-case execution times (WCET) relating to MCS.
  • Certification issues of MCS on multi-core and many-core platforms.
  • Safety and fault-tolerance mechanisms for real-time MCS systems.
  • Probabilistic analysis techniques for MCS.

The scope of the workshop is real-time, mixed criticality systems. Papers that do not relate to real-time behaviour (i.e. are solely about security or safety aspects of MCS) will be considered as out of scope.
