below you find the preliminary programme for the Scientific Day of the 4th ACCM Real-Time Linux Summer School.
Please notice, that the Summer School starts on July 11th , 2011 at 09:30 am with the Welcome Note in the Hochschulfonds Building, room HF 9901.
In general, Open-Source software and GNU/Linux in specific is being increasingly incorporated in consumer, industrial and also scientific projects. While it has been a key element in computer-science education and computer centric research for quite some time - one now can observe a wide proliferation into almost any domain of industrial and scientific endeavour.
This summer school is jointly hosted by the Institute for Measurement Technology of Johannes Kepler University in Linz and the Austrian Center of Competence in Mechatronics GmbH (ACCM). At these institutions Linux and Open-Source technologies have been in continuous use over the past years in teaching and in scientific research as well as in research projects in collaboration with industrial partners in the context of the ACCM. This use of Open-Source technologies has lead to a continuous interaction with the Open-Source community which this summer school is one part of.
While there are many large conferences focussed on different hot topics, this summer school plans to introduce the breadth of GNU/Linux and related open-source technologies by presentations which cover the quite diverse fields of the FLOSS development.
At this summer school we will also offer a scientific presentation/discussion track on the first day with invited speakers giving an in-depth introduction to a wide variety of topics with the intent of encouraging discussions and scientific exchange.
