The Euromicro Technical Committee organizes a number of satellite events attached to its 16th International Real-Time Systems Conference. This workshop is the fourth 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 and 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:

  • Flow analysis for WCET
  • Low-level timing analysis, modelling and analysis of processor features
  • Calculation methods for WCET
  • Strategies to reduce the complexity of WCET analysis
  • Timing analysis through measurement
  • Probabilistic analysis techniques
  • Integration of WCET and schedulability analysis
  • Evaluation and case studies
  • Tools for timing analysis
  • Current practice in industry
  • Integration of WCET analysis in development process

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

Submission of papers : People who would like to participate in this event are asked to submit 4 page short paper to to the workshop chair (puaut@irisa.fr). 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 sessions will involve 5-10 minute presentations followed by a 20-25 minute discussion per-session. Authors will be asked to produce a final version of their paper that includes the issues covered in the discussions by September 1, 2004. The final papers will be published.

To foster the workshop character the number of participants will be limited to 30. There will be a small charge for workshop registration.

The workshop will be held in Catania, Sicily. See the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems website for information on the venue, registration, hotel reservations and Catania.
