The Euromicro Technical Committee organizes a number of satellite events attached to its 18th International Real-Time Systems Conference. This workshop is the sixth on the series of WCET workshops that started at the 2001 Euromicro conference.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together people from academia, tool vendors and users in industry that are interested in all aspects of timing analysis for real-time systems. The workshop will provide a relaxed forum to present and discuss new ideas, new research directions, and to review current trends in this area. The workshop will be based on short presentations that should encourage discussion by the attendees.

The topics of the workshop include any issue related to timing analysis, in particular:

  • Different approaches at computing WCET

  • Flow analysis for WCET

  • Low-level timing analysis, modeling and analysis of processor features

  • Calculation methods for WCET

  • Strategies to reduce the complexity of WCET analysis

  • Integration of WCET and schedulability analysis

  • Evaluation and case studies

  • Testing Methods for WCET analysis

  • Tools for timing analysis

  • Design for Timing Predictability

  • Integration of WCET analysis into the development process

  • Compiler optimizations for worst-case paths

  • WCET analysis for multi-processors, multi-cores or SMTs

  • WCET analysis for networks (e.g., CAN)

Statements which are innovative, controversial, or that present new approaches are specially sought.


People who would like to participate in this event are asked to submit a 6 page short paper (PS or PDF) via the workshop submission system. Upon acceptance, a corrected version of the paper should be prepared and submitted. All papers will be made available to all participants a week before the workshop so that contributions can be examined prior to the workshop.

The workshop fosters a highly interactive format of short presentations combined with ample time for in-depth discussions. Authors will be asked to produce a final version of their paper that includes the issues covered in the discussions by September 1, 2006. The final papers will be published.

To foster the workshop character, the number of participants will be limited. There will be a small charge for workshop registration. The workshop will be held in Dresden (more details will come later). See the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems website http://ecrts06.tudos.org/ for information on the venue, hotel reservations and the city.
