There is an increasing eagerness to deploy and execute parallel applications on many-core infrastructures, preserving 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
