Industry is increasingly permeated with embedded systems that often require to act within a bounded time. Moreover, complex functionality and adaptivity is becoming more essential in designing such embedded systems. Embedded systems can also connect via heterogeneous communication systems to create complex distributed embedded systems that require careful design to fulfill their requirements, such as time, safety, resource efficiency, and security requirements. This track focuses on challenges that arise during designing such systems with the emphasis on meeting their timing requirements along with other requirements such as reliability, safety, etc.

Topics under this track include (but not limited to)

  • Real-time analysis and performance modelling
  • Analysis and empirical evaluations
  • WCET analysis
  • Worst-case performance analysis
  • Multi/many-core/SoC embedded systems
  • Adaptive real-time systems
  • Edge and cloud architectures and applications
  • Dependable systems including safety and criticality
  • Security issues in embedded systems design
  • Privacy-enhanced systems
  • QoS for embedded systems
  • Wireless sensor (and actuator) networks
  • Industrial IoT systems
  • Wired industrial communication systems (PROFINET, TSN, EtherCAT)
  • Software defined networks and systems
  • Software development for embedded systems
  • Design tools and methodologies for embedded systems
  • Verification and validation techniques
  • Formal modelling and methods
  • (Self)-reconfigurable real-time systems
  • Mixed-criticality real-time systems
  • Reliable and fault tolerant real-time systems
  • Energy and performance optimization
  • Hardware-software integration and co-design
  • Industrial case studies of real-time systems
  • System and deployment experiences
