Power Management and Scheduling in the Linux Kernel

OSPM Summit - V edition

The V edition of the Power Management and Scheduling in the Linux Kernel (OSPM) Summit aims at fostering discussions on power management and (real-time) scheduling techniques. Summit will be held in Ancona (Italy) on April 17-19, 2023.

Although scheduler techniques for reducing energy consumption while meeting performance and latency requirements are the prime interest of the summit, we welcome anybody interested in having discussions on the broader scope of real-time systems, real-time and non-real-time scheduling, tooling, debugging and tracing.


Feel free to have a look at what happened in previous years:


The summit is organized to cover three days of discussions and talks.

The list of topics of interest includes (but it is not limited to):

  • Power management techniques
  • Real-time and non real-time scheduling techniques
  • Energy consumption and CPU capacity aware scheduling
  • Real-Time Virtualization
  • Mobile/Server power management real-world use cases (successes and failures)
  • Power management and scheduling tooling (tracing, configuration, integration testing, etc.)
  • Tracing
  • Recap lightning talks (what has been achieved w.r.t. the previous edition?)
