Call for Papers
What is new
RTSS’19 adopts a new page limit requirement. The main body of each submitted paper is limited to 11 pages of technical content with additional pages permitted for the bibliography only. All submitted papers must comply with the double-blind submission requirements.

Scope of the Conference
The IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS) is the premier conference in the field of real-time systems, and is a venue for researchers and practitioners to showcase innovations covering all aspects of real-time systems, including theory, design, analysis, implementation, evaluation, and experience. RTSS’19, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the event, continues the trend of making RTSS an expansive and inclusive event, striving to embrace new and emerging areas of real-time systems research.

RTSS’19 welcomes submissions of high-quality, original research papers related to both real-time system theory and practice. Submissions can go to either the real-time system track (Track 1) or the design and application track (Track 2) which covers Cyber-Physical Systems, HW-SW integration and system-level design, and Internet of Things (IoT). Details of the tracks can be found below. To be in scope, ALL submissions must address some form of real-time requirements such as deadlines, response times or delays/latency.

RTSS’19 especially welcomes new and emerging topics provided that they address some aspects of real-time requirements as stated above. Such topics may include machine learning techniques for design and analysis of real-time systems, system design approaches for achieving real-time machine learning, resource management in autonomous systems, system-level solutions for real-time applications exploiting domain-specific accelerators, etc.

All accepted papers will appear in the main program and proceedings. A selection of papers will receive recognition as outstanding papers, and will be highlighted as such in the proceedings. Authors of outstanding papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a special issue of a journal. Best paper and best student paper awards will be presented at the conference, along with an award for the best presentation. (Note that submissions are eligible for the best student paper award provided that the first author is a student as of the submission deadline).

The objective of this track is to promote cutting-edge research in real-time systems, especially new and emerging topics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following: operating systems, networks, middleware, compilers, tools, scheduling, QoS support, resource management, testing and debugging, design and verification, modeling, WCET analysis, performance analysis, fault tolerance, security, and system experimentation and deployment experiences.

This track aims to highlight the newest research achievements in designs, implementations and applications that must attend to some aspects of real-time requirements. Continuing with the success in previous years, the track will particularly focus on three specialized areas:

Cyber-Physical Systems

Many applications in the CPS domain (such as transportation, healthcare, industrial control, etc.) possess real-time requirements. Papers are welcomed that identify scientific foundations and technologies that advance the state-of-the-art for CPS. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) new theories for CPS, design methods, simulation/emulation for CPS, tools chains, CPS architectures, security and privacy, hardware/software compositions that include physical components, analysis techniques and tools especially those with multiple temporal and spatial scales, performance analysis, robustness and safety.

HW-SW Integration and System–Level Design

This area focuses on design methodologies and tools for hardware/software integration and co-design of modern embedded systems for real-time applications. Topics include (but are not limited to) architecture description languages and tools, hardware architectures, design space exploration, synthesis and optimization. Of special interest are SoC design for real-time applications, special-purpose functional units, specialized memory structures, multi-core chips and communication aspects, FPGA simulation and prototyping, software simulation and compilation for novel architectures and applications, as well as power, thermal, timing and predictability analyses.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Grand challenges in IoT include extremely constrained resources (energy supply, storage and computational power) in IoT devices, unprecedented scalability requirements as well as uncertain dynamics in their operating environments. Submissions are welcomed that build on solid theoretical foundations, present empirical development, and experimental evaluations for empowering IoT applications. Of special interest is research addressing aspects of scalability, interoperability, uncertainty, reliability, security, power management, energy scavenging, architectures, operating systems, middleware and programming abstractions, protocols, modelling, analysis and performance evaluation.
