** Overview **

The RTCSA conference series (now at its 27th edition) brings together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology and the theory to design and develop time-sensitive applications. All traditional applications in which temporal aspects need to be considered are in the scope of the conference. CPS, (Industrial) IoT, embedded systems, fog/edge/cloud computing are just notable examples. RTCSA welcomes both research and industrial 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 on IEEExplore and will be indexed by most search engines including Scopus, Web of Science, DBLP.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. RTCSA 2021 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Topic of Interest

** Topics of interest **

The 27th edition of RTCSA will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry to promote cross-fertilization and discuss advances and trends in the technology of embedded and real-time systems and their emerging applications, including the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems. RTCSA 2021 seeks papers that describe original research in the following areas, but are not limited to:


Real-Time Scheduling
Workload models for real-time systems
Temperature/Energy-aware Scheduling
Scheduling over heterogeneous architectures
Scheduling over distributed architectures
Timing Analysis
Formal methods for temporal guarantees
Programming Languages and Run-Time Systems
Middleware Systems
Communication Networks and Protocols of Real-Time Systems
Time-Sensitive Media Processing and Transmissions
Latency and throughput in Real-Time Databases


Systems, Technology and Foundations of IoT and CPS
Applications and Case Studies of IoT and CPS
Smart and Connected Health
Industrial Internet and Industry 4.0
Smart City Technology and Applications
Smart Transportation and Infrastructure
Cyber-Physical Co-Design
Medical CPS
Cloud, Middleware and Networks for IoT and CPS
Wireless Sensor-Actuator Networks for IoT and CPS


Multi-Core Embedded Systems
Operating Systems
Non-Volatile Memory and Storage
Power/Thermal Aware Design
Fault Tolerance and Security
Sensor-based Systems and Applications
Reconfigurable Computing Architectures and Software Support
Ubiquitous and Distributed Embedded Systems and Networks
Embedded Systems for Machine-Learning

*** Submission Guidelines

Both research and industry papers are solicited. The submitted manuscript must describe original work not previously published and not concurrently submitted elsewhere. We welcome high quality papers, adhering to the following two formats:

Full Paper format: paper must fit within 10 pages

Short Paper format: paper must fit within 6 pages

Both types of submission must be formatted according to the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-columns, single-space, 10pt) and must include references and acknowledgements within the page limit.

In some cases, the Program Committee may decide to accept a full paper submission as a short paper, in which case, the authors will be required to reduce its length for the final version. Conference content will be published by the IEEE Computer Society on IEEExplore and will be indexed by most search engines including Scopus, Web of Science, DBLP.

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one author will register at full registration rate to the conference and present the paper (in person or via a teleconferencing system).

*** COVID-19 ***

The diffusion of COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) is constantly monitored by the conference organizers. Since safety of participants is of paramount importance to the organizers, would the infection pose a threat to participants according to the WHO, we will allow speakers the remote presentation via a video-conferencing system.
