                                                  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 interact.

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.
