Call for Workshop Proposals

The IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA) is the premier conference of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems located in Asia. The IEEE Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Applications Symposium (NVMSA) is a premier conference in the area of non-volatile memory systems and emerging memory technologies. The RTCSA’18 and NVMSA’18 will take place in Hakodate, Japan, from August 28th to 31st, 2018.

The RTCSA and NVMSA are organizing a joint workshop program on August 28th.  In this workshop, papers will be included in the program and on-site proceedings, but they are NOT published.


The purpose of the workshops are:

  • to strengthen interactions between the real-time/non-volatile memory community and other related research areas;
  • to create a stimulating environment that facilitates the discussion of open or hot research topics.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit workshop proposals. Proposals should consist of two parts. First, a short scientific
justification of the proposed topic, its significance, and the particular benefits of the workshop to the research community, as well as a list of previous or related workshops (if any).


Second, an organizational part should include:

  • contact information of the workshop organizers;
  • estimate of the audience size;
  • proposed format (contributed short papers or long abstracts, invited papers, open discussion, keynote speakers, etc.);
  • potential invited speakers, if any;
  • proposed sponsorships, if any;
  • procedures for selecting papers and participants, if any (program committee, review process, etc.);
  • plans for dissemination, if any (website, special issues of journals, etc.);
  • special technical or audio/video needs;
  • any other relevant information.

Submission of proposals should be made by sending an email to Ryota Shioya (
