February 15, 2019 — Camera-ready Deadline
April 16-18, 2019 — RTAS 2019 (part of CPSWeek 2019)
Scope of the Conference
RTAS is a top-tier conference with a focus on systems research related to embedded systems or timing issues. The broad scope of RTAS’19 ranges from traditional hard real-time systems to embedded systems without explicit timing requirements, including latency-sensitive systems with informal or soft real-time requirements.
RTAS’19 invites papers describing original systems and applications, case studies, methodologies, and applied algorithms that contribute to the state of practice in the design, implementation, verification, and validation of embedded systems and time-sensitive systems (of any size). The scope of RTAS’19 consists of three tracks:
- Applications, Operating Systems, and Run-Time Software,
- Applied Methodologies and Foundations, and
- Hardware Architectures and Analysis Tools.
Timing requirements of interest include not only classical hard real-time constraints, but also time-sensitive applications in a broader sense, including applications subject to probabilistic, soft real-time, quality-of-service (QoS), or latency requirements. For example, relevant application areas include (but are not limited to):
- time-sensitive cloud/edge/fog computing systems (e.g., characterized by a focus on tail latency);
- time-sensitive applications in the Internet of Things (IoT);
- time-sensitive distributed event processing systems;
- time-sensitive mobile computing apps;
- timing aspects in robotics middlewares and frameworks;
- machine learning in time-sensitive systems;
- real-time control in smart cities and other large cyber-physical systems (CPS); and
- real-time healthcare solutions.
RTAS’19 welcomes both papers backed by formal proofs as well as papers that focus exclusively on empirical validation of timing requirements. Track 1 further welcomes applied systems papers that focus on practical issues other than timing in the broader field of embedded/CPS/IoT systems and applications.
Please see online for a detailed description of all tracks:
The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE and indexed on IEEE Explore. RTAS’19 follows a double-blind peer reviewing process: author identities and affiliations will not be revealed to reviewers.
