                        CALL FOR PAPERS

                      The 14th Workshop on
       Java Technologies for Real-Time and Embedded Systems
                           JTRES 2016

                          Part of the
             Managed Languages & Runtimes Week 2016
                   29 August - 2 September 2016
                     Lugano, Switzerland



Submission deadline: 12 June, 2016

Over 90% of all microprocessors are now used for real-time and embedded applications. Embedded
devices are deployed on a broad diversity of distinct processor architectures and operating
systems. The application software for many embedded devices is custom tailored if not written
entirely from scratch. The size of typical embedded system software applications is growing
exponentially from year to year, with many of today's embedded systems comprised of multiple
millions of lines of code. For all of these reasons, the software portability, reuse, and
modular composability benefits offered by Java are especially valuable to developers of embedded

Both embedded and general purpose software frequently need to comply with real-time constraints.
Higher-level programming languages and middleware are needed to robustly and productively
design, implement, compose, integrate, validate, and enforce memory and real-time constraints
along with conventional functional requirements for reusable software components. The Java
programming language has become an attractive choice because of its safety, productivity,
its relatively low maintenance costs, and the availability of well trained developers.


Interest in real-time Java by both the academic research community and commercial industry
has been motivated by the need to manage the complexity and costs associated with continually
expanding embedded real-time software systems. The goal of the workshop is to gather researchers
working on real-time and embedded Java to identify the challenging problems that still need
to be solved in order to assure the success of real-time Java as a technology and to report
results and experience gained by researchers.

The Java ecosystem has outgrown the combination of Java as programming language and the JVM.
For example, Android uses Java as source language and the Dalvik virtual machine for execution.
Languages such as Scala are compiled to Java bytecode and executed on the JVM. JTRES welcomes
submissions that apply such approaches to embedded and/or real-time systems.

::Submission Requirements::

Participants are expected to submit a paper of at most 10 pages (ACM Conference Format, i.e.,
two-columns, 10 point font). Accepted papers will be published in the ACM International Conference
Proceedings Series via the ACM Digital Library and have to be presented by one author at the

LaTeX and Word templates can be found at:

The ISBN number for JTRES 2016 is TBD.

Papers describing open source projects shall include a description how to obtain the source
and how to run the experiments in the appendix. The source version for the published paper
will be hosted at the JTRES web site.
Papers should be submitted through EasyChair. Please use the submission link:

Selected papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of the TBD.
