The 24th International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems (RTNS 2016) took place this October 19-21th, in Brest, France. RTNS is a friendly conference with a great sense of community, where cutting edge research is presented in the areas of real-time system design and analysis, infrastructure and hardware for real-time systems, software technologies for real-time systems and emerging applications.
CISTER researcher Luis Miguel Pinho was Program Co-Chair of the conference, together with Sébastien Faucou from Université de Nantes, France. The conference featured a rich 3-day technical program, with 34 papers split in 10 sessions, coming from a record number of submissions at RTNS.
Highlights of the conference was the keynote talk by Sebastian Fischmeister, University of Waterloo, Canada, on “Time-aware Instrumentation: From the Formal Model to Applications”; the 10th Junior Researcher Workshop on Real-Time Computing; and, for the first time at RTNS, an Artifact Evaluation process, an increasingly important requirements for research results.
The conference was both a technical and networking success, blessed by sunny days in Brest, a rare occasion at this time of the year.
