                                                  Call for Papers
                                          ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
            Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Real-Time Systems
                                Las Vegas, Nevada, 15 June, 1997
                (In Conjunction with ACM SIGPLAN PLDI and PPoPP)

ACM SIGPLAN LCT-RTS '97 is an interface between two dynamic fields of
computer science and engineering: programming language implementation and
real-time systems. Researchers in these areas are addressing many similar
problems, but with different backgrounds and approaches. LCT-RTS is
intended to expose researchers from either area to relevant work and
interesting problems in the other area and provide a forum where they can

Until recently real-time systems development was performed by experienced
specialists using a variety of custom kernels, non-standard languages, and
vendor-specific device interfaces. System integration involved a
complicated process of obtaining timing measurements, hand-tuning code, and
re-measuring. These ad-hoc techniques do not scale well for modern
systems. Also, the majority of real-time developers is no longer composed of
embedded control experts. New software approaches are needed to support
these new systems and provide appropriate tools for real-time programmers.

Original submissions are invited in all areas relevant to this theme.
Appropriate topics include (but are not restricted to) the following aspects
of real-time systems.

              * Programming languages for real-time applications
              * Real-time design, specification, analysis
              * Exception & interrupt handling for real-time
              * Timing analysis: static & dynamic
              * Program optimization for real-time performance
              * Real-time profiling, measurement, & debugging
              * Real-time scheduling analysis
              * Real-time memory management & garbage collection
              * Language support for imprecise computation
              * Real-time on RISCs: caches, pipelines, windows
              * Real-time system integration & testing
              * Support for partitioning, mapping, & compression

Papers should report new research and should not exceed 5000 words
(approximately 10 typeset on 16-point spacing, or 15 typewritten
double-spaced pages). Short papers that describe existing implementations
or work-in-progress, or outline new problems or important issues are also
welcome. Short papers should not exceed 3000 words (6 pages). All accepted
papers will be presented at the workshop and published in the proceedings,
which will be distributed at the workshop.
