EWiLi is mainly focused on embedded Linux but could be of interest for RTEMS developpers.


Call For Papers
EWiLi'13, the 3rd Embedded Operating Systems Workshop
Co-located with ETR (French Real-time Summer School)
Submission deadline: 8 May 2013
26-27 August 2013, ENSEEIHT, Toulouse, France

Aim and Scopes:
EWiLi, the embedded operating systems workshop, aims at presenting
state-of-the-art research, experimentations, significant and original
realizations that focus on the design and implementation of embedded
operating systems in both academic and industrial worlds.
The 3rd edition of EWiLi will take place at the ENSEEIHT engineering school
in Toulouse, France.

EWiLi's two first editions were dedicated to the Embedded Linux operating
system which has progressively constituted a strong alternative to
proprietary and/or commercial solutions in embedded systems, whether it is
deeply embedded or not, and this for many application domains, such as
multimedia, telephony, transport, automotive ….

The steering committee has considered the numerous requests from potential
contributors and decided to extend the scope of the workshop to all embedded
operating systems. We believe that this new perimeter will make the workshop
even richer.
The workshop objective is also to be a meeting place for industrial and
academic actors. During the last edition that counted 80 participants, 40%
came from industry.

Expected contributions include but are not limited to the following topics:
- Embedded operating systems and education
- Methods, software and tool chains
- Model-driven and embedded operating systems
- Data management and memory hierarchy optimization
- Real-time, concurrency, scheduling and temporal performance
- File systems, storage, and I/Os in embedded operating systems
- Embedded operating systems and reconfigurable architectures
- Embedded operating systems and MPSOC
- Embedded operating systems and multicore
- Embedded operating systems and sensor networks
- Energy and power optimization in embedded operating systems
- Debug and profiling for embedded operating systems
- Case studies and application projects
- Performance evaluation and optimization

EWiLi is jointly organized with the French real-time summer school (ETR).
Consequently, submissions dealing with real-time system aspects are strongly

Keynote speakers:
EWili is featuring 2 distinguished keynote speakers for this 3rd edition:
- Dr. Joel Sherrill Director of Research and Development OAR
Corporation, with a talk on RTEMS embedded operating system
- Dr. Robert Davis Senior Research Fellow in the Real-Time Systems
Research Group, University of York, and a Director of Rapita Systems Ltd.
with a talk on monoprocessor scheduling

Submissions & publication:
All accepted papers will be published in the ACM SIGBED Review (ISSN:
1551-3688) Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems. The special issue is
planned for January 2014.

Papers should not exceed 6 pages in ACM SIG format (see
http://sigbed.seas.upenn.edu/submit.html ) and should be written in English.

Submission can be made on the Easychair link:
