This Proceedings contains the papers presented at the IFAC Workshop on Real-Time Programming held in Spain.
During these last twelve years, the Workshop on Real-Time Programming (WRTP) has developed as an excellent forum for presenting the most relevant advances in the field of real-time computing and exchanging information and experiences among the real-time community. Several of the most relevant people of this community have participated in the reviewing process that plays, every time, a more important role.
This year, 48 papers from 16 different countries have been submitted to the Workshop. After the review process, 31 of them have been selected for presentation including 2 industrial papers. They cover topics of formal methods, scheduling, distributed systems, embedded systems, design techniques, applications, etc. Their discussion proved to be interesting and productive, and we are sure that it helped to throw light on some of the aspects of Real-Time Programming.
WRTP 2000 was organised in co-operation with another event related to the real-time field: the Workshop on Algorithms and Architecture for Real-Time Control (AARTC). Both Workshops were scheduled with a common day of joint activities. This experience increased the level of cooperation and information exchanging between this two research communities which have several aspects in common.
