Call for Papers

RTCSA seeks both research and industry track papers that describe research or technical aspects in the area of embedded and real-time systems. Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Regular Paper Submission

Both research and industry track papers are solicited. The submitted manuscript must describe original work not previously published and not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Submissions should be no more than 10 pages in the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-column, single-space, 10pt). Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore, and will be EI indexed. The prospective authors should submit their papers through the submission web page at RTCSA 2018 seeks papers that describe original research in these areas, particularly in:
