ABSTRACT:
In the context of computer systems, scheduling theory seeks to ensure the efficient utilization of computing resources in order to optimize specified system-wide objectives. In this presentation we will examine how scheduling theory is dealing with the recent trend in embedded systems towards implementing functionalities of different levels of importance (or criticalities) upon a shared platform. We will explore the factors that motivated this trend towards mixed-criticality systems, discuss how these systems pose new challenges to real-time scheduling theory, and describe how real-time scheduling theory is responding to these challenges by devising new models and methods for the design and analysis of such systems.
