Call for Demo/Poster

The 24th IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA 2018)

Location: Hokkaido, Japan
Date: August 28-31, 2018

RTCSA 2018 will take place in Hokkaido, Japan. The RTCSA conference series carry on with the tradition and bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology of embedded and real-time systems and their emerging applications, including the Internet of things and cyber-physical systems.

We solicit demo/poster submissions of early stage work, especially from students and young researchers to promote fruitful discussions with other participants and speed up the research. A demo/poster submission must describe its content, such as the motivation of the work, the idea to approach the problem, and preliminary results (if any). Authors of non-accepted full/short papers are encouraged to submit demo/poster session.

Submissions should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register as full-registration and attend the conference to present their work. RTCSA2018 reserves the right to exclude a paper from publication after the conference (e.g., removal from the web site), if the paper is not presented at the conference.


What’s difference between demo and poster?

Poster booth: Exhibition space and poster panel are provided.
Demo booth: Table and power are provided in addition to a poster booth.
Please choose demo/poster category when you submit your paper.



Researchers and practitioners showing a demonstration are required to bring all necessary equipment and material for the successful operation of their exhibit. RTCSA will provide shipping instructions, if needed, for the delivery of material to the conference site. If special arrangement is needed for your exhibition such as wired internet connection, please make sure that authors contact Demo/Poster Chair no later than 30 days prior to the start of the conference.
