    Over the last 30 years there has been a plethora of languages used
    for the implementation of industrial and military real-time and
    embedded systems. Early languages such as Jovial, Coral 66, and RTL/2
    have been replaced by C/C++, Perl, Ada and Esterel. Whilst Ada has
    a niche in the safety critical systems market, there has been
    wide-spead use of C/C++. This dominance has been reinforced by
    the developement of the real-time POSIX standards. However, all
    these languages have their critics. For some, Ada and POSIX are
    too complicated, for others C/C++ are too insecure.

    More recently, Java has emerged as a candiate language which claims
    a compromise between the safety and security of Ada, and yet the flexibility
    and popularity of C/C++. However, Java lacks some of the facilities
    required to program hard real-time systems, and its implementation
    lacks the predictablity needed for safety critical applications.

    This workshop will give the opportunity to researchers, developers, and
    practitioners working in related areas to exchange experience on the
    design, implementation and use of programming language in industrial
    and military applications. Topics of submissions include but are not
    limited to:

            * progress reports on the developement and use of Java
            * real-time java virtual machines
            * evaluation of Java for real-time
            * Ada 95 real-time profiles (subsets)
            * lessons learned from the use of current (C/C++, Pearl, Ada and Esterel)
            * meeting the demands of real-time distributed programming
            * the impact of future systems requirements on programming languages
            * the role of real-time POSIX


    Authors are invited to submit regular workshop papers as well as
    proposals for panel discussions. Paper submissions should be limited
    to 10 pages, double space, including figures. The title page should
    include a maximum 150-word abstract, five keywords, full mailing address,
    e-mail address, phone number, fax number, and a designated contact author.

    All submissions must be electronic (postscript) and sent to:
