"Methodologies for the WCET Analysis of Parallel Applications on Many-core Architectures" paper in the 18th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD), Aug. 2015.

There is an increasing eagerness to deploy and execute parallel applications on many-core infrastructures, pre- serving the time-predictability of the execution as required by real-time practices to upper-bound the response time of the embedded application. In this context, the paper discusses the application of the currently-available WCET analysis techniques and tools on such platforms and with highly parallel activities. After discussing the pros and cons of all different methodologies for WCET analysis, we introduce a new approach that is developed within the P-SOCRATES project.
