RTCSA 2015 , to be held on Aug. 19-21, 2015, in Hong Kong, China, will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology of embedded and real-time systems, and their emerging applications. The conference has the following goals: to investigate advances in embedded and real-time systems and system design practice and emerging applications; to promote interaction among the areas of embedded computing, real-time computing and system design practice and emerging applications; to evaluate the maturity and directions of embedded and real-time system and system design practice and emerging applications technology. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Embedded System Architectures

- (Heterogeneous) Multi-core Embedded Systems

- Operating Systems and Scheduling

- Embedded Software and Compiler

- Power/Thermal Aware Design Issues

- Fault Tolerance and Security

- Sensor-Based Systems and Applications

- Embedded Systems and Design Methods for Cyber-Physical Systems

- Reconfigurable Computing Architectures and Software Support

- Ubiquitous and Distributed Embedded Systems and Networks


-Real-Time Operating Systems

-Real-Time Scheduling

-Timing Analysis

-Programming Languages and Run-Time Systems

-Middleware Systems

-Design and Analysis Tools

-Communication Networks and Protocols

-Media Processing and Transmissions

-Real-Time Aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks

-Energy Aware Real-Time Methods



- Design Practice for Complex Computing Systems

- Emerging Applications Considering Timing, Power, Reliability, Security, etc.

- Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems

- Smart Cars, Smart Communities, Smart Environment, etc.

- System Validation and Testing

- Use Cases and Study

Special Note for System Design Practice and Emerging Applications Track: Submissions accompanying experimental analyses with real implementations are particularly sought for this track. Since this track puts emphasis on practical experiences, insights and methodologies for building important and/or complex software systems, they will be evaluated with criteria different from those for theoretical work. Submissions from industry are very much welcomed.



  • Regular Paper Submission

    The submitted manuscript must describe original work not previously published and not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Submissions should be no more than 10 pages in the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-column, single-space, 10pt). Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore, and will be EI indexed. See the SUBMISSIONS web page for more details.

  • Work-in-Progress Session  

    This session provides an opportunity for researchers attending RTCSA to present and discuss their research. A one page long abstract describing the in-progress work is to be submitted through the Submission Site. Submissions should be no more than 1 page in the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-column, single-space, 10pt). The title of the submission should start with “WiP Abstract:”. Accepted work-in-progress long abstracts will be included in separate medium other than the formal conference publication; and authors of accepted WiP abstracts will give a short oral presentation at the conference’s WiP session.

  • Special Issues of SCI(E)-indexed Journals

    We are arranging several SCI(E) journals to have special issues for the conference, e.g. Journal of Signal Processing Systems, etc. A good number of accepted papers will be recommended to submit the extended versions to the special issues. Please check our website later for more details.
