VtRES 2013 - Workshop on Virtualization for Real-Time Embedded Systems (VtRES 2013)



VenueTaipei, Taiwan Taiwan



Topics/Call fo Papers

Virtualization has been proposed as an attractive technical solution to solve many of the problems related to sharing of system resources (hardware and software) by independent applications. Virtualization creates a set of Virtual Machines (VM) that are dedicated to the applications for running them on the physical system in a controlled manner. During runtime, a middleware is responsible for providing the required resources to VMs according to the specifications of their associated applications. This middleware is called Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) or hypervisor. However virtualization imposes runtime overhead, which can affect the efficiency of its usage. Furthermore, a proper support for predictable timing behavior of real-time embedded systems applications should be provided to fulfill the timing constrains of these applications. Without careful design, such support can further increase the overhead of the VMM and make virtualization an inefficient solution for embedded systems. The main focus of this workshop is on methods, techniques and mechanisms for efficient and predictable virtualization for real-time embedded system applications.
Aim: The VtRES workshop provides a forum for researchers and technologists to discuss the state-of-the-art, present their work and contributions, and set future directions in virtualization for real-time embedded systems.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Efficient design and implementation of VMM in terms of the timing constraint, QoS assurance, runtime overhead and energy consumption requirements.
- Extending VMMs to support virtualization for embedded systems.
- Supporting virtualization for advanced hardware technologies such as multi-core/many-core, GPU, high-speed network communication media and devices, etc.
- VMM performance tuning based on applications’ load types.
- Virtualizing networks.
- Device sharing between virtual machines, including e.g, I/O and field busses.
- Methods for achieving advanced features found in server virtualization, such as live migration, with predictable real-time performance.
- Modeling and analysis of virtualized applications.
- Fault tolerance techniques in virtualized environments.
- Tools relevant to virtualization.
- Case studies of applications on virtualized platforms.
- Deployment studies of virtualization technologies.
- Novel use and application of virtualization for embedded real-time systems.
Submission of Papers: VtRES invites papers that present novel ideas in virtualization for real-time systems, survey the state-of-the-art, present work-in-progress, and discuss open issues. All papers should be formatted as single-space, double-column, in a 10 point font and max 6 pages. All submissions should be in PostScript (PS) or PDF.
Paper Acceptance: For accepted papers, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop.
Author’s Schedule:
Deadline for papers submission: May 31, 2013
Notification of acceptance: June 23, 2013
Deadline for Camera ready: July 7, 2013
