Material from SNART Summer School and RTiS 2009

We will publish the slide presentations from the summer school and the conference below as soon as we collect them.

Real-Time in Sweden and SNART Summer School 2009

SNART is traditionally arranging the Real-Time in Sweden (RTiS) conference in August this year. The conference is intended to give an overview of current research and development in the area of real-time and embedded systems, and this year we have an excellent program of invited speakers (see program below). The conference is intended to act as a platform promoting networking within Swedish academia and industry. This year the conference is held in the beautiful city of Lund 19th to 20th of August (19th lunchtime - 20th afternoon).

Moreover, in continuing the tradition of the ARTES Summer School for Ph.D. students, there will be a SNART Summer School the 18th and 19th of August (18th lunchtime - 19th lunchtime). During the summer school there are some invited speakers, and the Ph.D. students will be given an opportunity to present their research. The purpose of the summer school is to establish, maintain and strengthen the network of Swedish Ph.D. students in the area of real-time and embedded systems within Sweden. It is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, and to kick start the academic year of 2009-2010.

A detailed program and instructions for registration are available here:
