The Real-Time Systems Laboratory (ReTiS Lab) is one of the world’s leading research teams in the area of embedded real-time systems, time-critical scheduling algorithms, advanced operating systems, and adaptive resource management. The group, directed by Giorgio Buttazzo, was established in 1993 and currently comprises 50 people, including 6 faculty members, 7 research associates, and 22 Ph.D. students.

The ReTiS group has been involved in many European research projects related to several aspects of real-time computing, including scheduling, operating systems support for embedded systems, design methodology and tools for real-time applications, real-time control software, and novel operating systems design for cloud computing and massively parallel and distributed systems. ReTiS was also actively involved in the ArtistDesign European Network of Excellence for Embedded Systems Design, leading a cluster on operating systems and networks, including 20 top European universities, SMEs, and research centers.
