The deadline for ACM SIGPLAN LCT-RTS '97 has been extended to
February 1. Please read the text below for further information.

                                                  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.

Please e-mail a postscript copy of your submission to by 5pm EST on February 1, 1997. If you are
unable to send a postscript file via e-mail, then please send
nine hard copies to one of the co-chairs. Authors will be
notified by March 17. Final, camera-ready versions are due on
May 15. Proceedings will be distributed at the workshop.
