RTEST international symposium – Call for Papers

Call for Papers
The RTEST International Symposium
June 10-11, 2020
Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM), Tehran, Iran
Submission deadline: January 6, 2020

The RTEST international symposium aims at bringing researchers in the fields of real-time and embedded systems and related research areas, from both industry and academia together. This event was held as a national only event from 1995 to 2014. Starting from 2015 (see http://rtest-conf.org/), RTEST became a successful international symposium. RTEST 2020 will be held on June 10-11, 2020 at the Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM), Tehran, Iran; organized by School of Computer Science. The symposium will have two keynote speeches by leading experts, namely:

  • Lothar Thiele (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich-ETHZ)
  • Arvind Easwaran (Nanyang Technological University-NTU)

RTEST 2020 welcomes high-quality, original research papers, related to real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems theory and practice. Submissions may include all theoretical and application-oriented areas, reporting modeling, design, analysis, implementation, evaluation, and empirical results of real-time and embedded systems, Internet-of-Things (IoT), and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), including (but not limited to):

  • Real-time software and applications
  • Embedded hardware
  • Multicore and many-core embedded systems
  • Networked/distributed real-time/embedded systems
  • Real-time scheduling and resource management
  • WCET estimation
  • Real-time control systems
  • Real-time and embedded operating systems
  • Hardware/software co-design
  • System-level design
  • Modeling and Model-based design of CPS
  • Formal verification of CPS
  • Compilers for embedded systems
  • Testing and debugging of embedded and real-time systems
  • Dependability in real-time embedded systems
  • Quality-of-service (QoS) management
  • Power and thermal management
  • Energy efficiency and optimization
  • Machine-learning techniques in resource-constrained embedded systems
  • AI/ML for IoT and embedded systems
  • Analytic foundations of IoT
  • Reliability, security, timeliness, and robustness in IoT and CPS
  • Data streaming architectures and machine learning analytics for IoT and CPS
  • CPS and IoT applications, including smart cities, healthcare, brain-machine interface, etc.

All accepted papers will appear in the symposium main program and proceedings. After the conference, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work for inclusion in a special issue on “Testing and Verification of Non-Functional Aspects of Cyber-Physical Systems: Theories, Methods, and Tools” of the Elsevier Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA). Another special issue on “Machine Learning in Resource-Constrained Embedded Systems” will also be announced after finalizing the negotiations with another prestigious journal.

The symposium is in the process of obtaining the required permissions
to index the accepted papers in IEEE/Xplore/ Digital Library.


Submissions must be PDFs, written in English and submitted online via the RTEST 2020 EasyChair conference management system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rtest2020). The material must be unpublished and not under submission elsewhere. Submissions must not exceed 8 pages (2 columns, 10 pt) for the main text, inclusive of figures, tables, and references. All papers must conform, at the time of submission, to the IEEE Formatting Guidelines.
