Scheduling theory and real-time systems
Prof. Sanjoy Baruah
Recorded 09 September 2013 in Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland
In the context of computer systems, scheduling theory is concerned with the efficient allocation of limited computational resources amongst competing demands. We will examine the evolving role of real-time scheduling theory within the larger discipline of real-time computing. We will do so by seeking to understand why efficiency of implementation is becoming ever more important in modern real-time systems; discuss how such systems pose unique challenges to real-time scheduling theory; describe how real-time scheduling theory is beginning to respond to these challenges by devising new models and methods for the design and analysis of real-time systems; and list some of the many important open issues that remain to be dealt with.
