Call For Papers

ECRTS is the premier European venue for presenting research into the broad area of real-time systems. Along with RTSS and RTAS, ECRTS ranks as one of the top three international conferences on this topic. ECRTS has been at the forefront of recent innovations in the real-time community such as artifact evaluation and open access proceedings.

ECRTS 2019 will be held at the premises of Bosch in the Stuttgart area at the locations of Renningen and Feuerbach.

Papers on all aspects of real-time systems are welcome. This covers not only hard real-time systems but also time-sensitive systems in general. Typical applications are found in the classical domains of embedded and cyber-physical systems but also beyond, and include automotive, avionics, telecommunications, healthcare, robotics, space, etc. To be in scope, papers must address some form of timing requirement.

We welcome theoretical and practical contributions (including tools, benchmarks and case studies) to the state of the art in the design, implementation, verification and validation of real-time systems. This includes, but is not limited to:

- scheduling design and analysis
- real-time operating systems, hypervizors and middleware
- memory management and bus contention
- worst-case execution time analysis
- networks and communication protocols
- formal models and analysis techniques for real-time systems
- interplay between real-time and other aspects (security, safety, control, power/energy/thermal management, etc.)
- mixed-criticality design and assurance
- hardware/software co-design
- programming languages and compilers
- virtualization and timing isolation

The models, assumptions and application scenarios used in the paper must be properly motivated. Whenever relevant, we strongly encourage authors to present experimental results (preferably based on real data, but synthetic test cases are permitted) and/or to demonstrate applicability of their approach to real systems (examples can be found at We encourage open-source initiatives and computer-assisted proofs in order to increase confidence in practical and theoretical results and to improve their reusability.



ECRTS'19 will host the following workshops.
- CERTS: International Workshop on Security and Dependability of Critical Embedded Real-Time Systems
- OSPERT: International Workshop on Operating Systems Platforms for Embedded Real-Time Applications
- RTN: International Workshop on Real-Time Networks
- WATERS: International Workshop on Analysis Tools and Methodologies for Embedded and Real-time Systems
- WCET: International Workshop on Worst-Case Execution Time Analysis

In addition, ECRTS 2019 will feature
- a guided tour of the Bosch research campus
- a special focus on industrial challenges on the first day of the conference
- an interactive session including work-in-progress and journal-to-conference presentations
- a keynote by Thomas Kropf, president of corporate research and advance engineering at Bosch
- a special welcome for first-time attendees

Open access: We believe that a conference serves the research community and the public best when results are accessible to the largest audience without restrictions. All accepted papers will be published again this year under open access in collaboration with LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics), with no additional costs.

Artifact evaluation: To improve reproducibility of results, authors of accepted papers with a computational component will be invited to submit their code and/or their data to an optional artifact evaluation process.



Stuttgart is the capital and largest city of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Its urban area has a population of around 600,000, making it the sixth largest city in Germany, with another 5.3 million people living in its metropolitan area. Stuttgart is also a transport junction, and possesses the sixth-largest airport in Germany. Stuttgart is spread across a variety of hills (some of them covered in vineyards), valleys (especially around the Neckar river) and parks. This often surprises visitors who associate the city with its reputation as the "cradle of the automobile" and the headquarters of Daimler, Porsche and Bosch. Stuttgart has a rich cultural life featuring a large variety of sights and museums from art to automobiles. For more information, please visit:
