Previous Editions


The Euromicro Technical Committee organizes a number of satellite events attached to its 21th International Real-Time Systems Conference. The Real Time Networks (RTN) workshop is the eight on the series of workshops that started at the 2002 ECRTS conference.
RTN focuses on the current technological challenges of developing communication infrastructures that are real-time, reliable, pervasive and interoperable.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together people from industry and academia that are interested in all aspects of real-time communication.
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 among the attendees. Statements which are innovative, controversial or that present new approaches are specially sought.
