Maryline Chetto
University of Nantes
Brief Bio
Maryline Chetto is a full professor at the University of Nantes. She is conducting her research at IRCCyN (Institut de Recherche en Communications et Cybernétique de Nantes). She received the degree of Docteur de 3ième cycle in control engineering and the degree of Habilité à Diriger des Recherches in Computer Science from the University of Nantes, France, in 1984 and 1993, respectively. Her current research interests include scheduling and power management for real-time energy harvesting applications.

Brief Bio
Hussein El Ghor received the engineering degree from the Lebanese University, Lebanon, in 2002. He received the degree of Doctor in control and applied informatics from the University of Nantes, France, in 2012. He is currently an assistant professor at the Lebanese University. His research interests concern real-time scheduling and partitioning with particular emphasis on energy efficiency and energy harvesting systems.


Today, real-time systems are embedded in a wide range of devices: consumer electronics, cars, wearable devices, sensor nodes, etc. Research is very active for designing very low power platforms because the amount of energy that must be available on board still limits the lifespan of embedded systems and prevent their miniaturization. Alternative energy sources present in our environment could be exploited to achieve perpetual functioning without replacing or recharging batteries: this is energy harvesting. Building battery-operated or energy harvesting real-time systems faces many challenges due to timing constraints and energy limitations. In particular, we have to introduce energy-aware scheduling strategies that not only could improve real-time performance but also make a better utilization of energy.

This workshop will address the range of problems related to embedded systems which have strong energy limitations such as in wireless sensors. We will welcome papers both from theoretical and practical aspects. Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to, but not limited, the following topics:
• Scheduling (Monocore, multicore, DVFS,…)
• Dynamic Power management
• Operating Systems
• Energy-efficient computing and networking
• QoS Optimization
• Data management in energy-efficient systems
• Modelling for renewable energy resources, etc.
with respect to energy constrained embedded systems.

The objective of this workshop is to stimulate researchers and practitioners in embedded systems, real-time scheduling, energy management and all other relevant areas to present their research ideas and results for advancing the technologies in the field of autonomous real-time systems.

The workshop program will contain a session of talks and a discussion round on general future research developments of this area. The goal is also to identify particular research questions and potential collaborations.
