RTSS 2020 – Call for Papers

Call for Papers
41st IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS 2020)
Houston, Texas, USA, December 1-4, 2020

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’20, celebrating the 41st 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’20 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 Trustworthy Intelligent Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, HW-SW integration and system-level design, and Internet of Things (IoT). To be in scope, ALL submissions must address some form of real-time requirements such as deadlines, response times or delays/latency. All accepted papers will appear in the main program and proceedings. Details of the tracks and further information can be found at http://2020.rtss.org/call-for-papers/.

RTSS’20 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.


Paper submission deadline: July 2, 2020 (FIRM)

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.


The RTSS’20 Hot Topics Day showcases new trends and developments related to the real-time system field. Hot Topics Day includes special sessions, tutorials, as well as half-day and full-day workshops. The conference also includes a Brief Presentations session and RTSS@Work demonstrations.
