Distribution and concurrency are pervasive in computer science and technology, from the simple PC, already multi-core, all the way up to supercomputing grids, and also graphic cards, PC clusters, distributed databases, and supercomputers. Distributed and parallel computing is also urged by the increasing computational requirements of various applications.
Real-time and embedded systems have become a necessity in almost every aspect of the daily lives of individuals and organizations, from self-contained applications to those embedded in various devices and services (mobile phones, vital sign sensors, medication dispensers, home appliances, engine ignition systems, etc). A large proportion of these systems are mission/life critical and time sensitive.
RTES 2012 provides a forum to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology of real-time and embedded systems. Aiming to be expansive and inclusive, RTES 2012 looks to embrace new and emerging areas of real-time and embedded systems research.
To celebrate RTES 2012, plan to come early and stay late and also enjoy a modern city surrounded by spectacular wilderness.
