The past five years has seen an emerging recognition of two important issues in computer science and engineering 1 languages and environments for distributed, embedded real-time control, and 2 languages and environments for artificial intelligence. For the past decade, people in real-time computing have been developing the basic concepts and techniques required for correct use of computers in real-time embedded systems. More recently, there have been a growing number of artificial intelligence applications involving real-time control systems. The workshop was originally conceived to have a language focus. As the workshop unfolded, the issues became less a matter of language, and more a matter of algorithms. The goals were addressed in two ways. A small number of experts in key subareas relating to the overall problem were invited to give presentations providing an orientation to that subarea and issue challenge positions on issues remaining to be solved. Secondly, working groups were formed to identify and discuss further issues in each of the subareas. The broad goals given to each of the working groups were to formulate a definition of the problem area and develop prioritized recommendations concerning 1. Major issues needing research 2. Promising directions for pursuit of these issues and 3. Identification of problems already satisfactorily addressed. Keywords Embedded AI languages, Workshop, Algorithms, Real-time systems.
