RTSS 2019

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.

RTSS 2019

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.

Recognizing Excellence

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.
