IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology. As a professional organization, IEEE’s number one priority is the well-being, safety and security of IEEE RTSS 2019 conference attendees. Given the current situation in Hong Kong, the decision was made not to hold IEEE RTSS 2019 in Hong Kong by IEEE.
The IEEE RTSS 2019 postponed conference will not be held in Hong Kong. The dates and location of the postponed conference will be communicated as soon as that information becomes available.
Conference Registration – IEEE RTSS 2019 will refund conference registration fees only.
Conference Hotel – The Hotel’s terms and conditions apply for hotel reservations made by individuals.
For participants who booked a room at the conference hotel or a nearby hotel in Hong Kong and are no longer travelling there, we recommend that you cancel your hotel booking immediately.
Airlines – Similarly, the Airline’s terms and conditions apply for flight reservations made by individuals.
Following the decision by IEEE not to hold the IEEE RTSS 2019 conference in Hong Kong, the TCRTS Executive Committee has decided that the postponed conference will be held in York, UK in early 2020. The tentative dates are 18th to 21st Feb. These dates are not yet confirmed and may be subject to change.
Further information will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
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’19, celebrating the 40th 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.

At RTSS 2019, we aim to be inclusive and include a large number of high quality papers in the main conference (subject to submissions). To facilitate this, we have the option to use shorter (25 minute) presentation slots thus allowing a significantly larger number of papers to be presented without the need for parallel sessions.The submission deadline for RTSS is Thursday 30th May 2019; later than the traditional deadlines to encourage submissions.
Submissions are welcomed to Track 1: Real-Time Systems Track and Track 2: Design and Application Track, see the Call for Papers tab for details.
The tradition of recognizing excellence at RTSS continues with Awards for Outstanding Papers, Best Paper, Best Student Paper and Best Presentation.
New for 2019
RTSS’19 adopts a new page limit requirement. The main body of each submitted paper is limited to 11 pages of technical content with additional pages permitted for the bibliography only. All submitted papers must comply with the double-blind submission requirements.
RTSS is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on
Real-Time Systems, with support from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Huawei.
