Call for Brief Presentations

Submissions of extended abstracts describing exciting and novel research are invited for the Brief Presentations (formerly Work-in-Progress) session of the IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS 2019). The primary purpose of the Brief Presentations (BP) session is to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss their ideas and gather feedback from the real-time community at large. Ideas and contributions that present significant paradigm shifts, explore unique and unconventional approaches to important problems, or investigate fundamental departures from conventional wisdom in adopted solutions are particularly welcome.

The BP session will accept both Work-in-Progress papers and Journal papers never presented in conferences. Work-in-Progress presentations will introduce on-going research in all aspects of real-time systems, including theory, design, analysis, implementation, evaluation, and experience. Journal paper presentations should provide an extended abstract of the paper, explaining the relevance to RTSS, discussing its impact, and clearly citing the journal work being presented. This would allow participants to present work published elsewhere that is relevant to the RTSS community and might not be widely known.

The brief presentations submissions are expected to showcase on-going or accepted research in the areas of both real-time systems theory and practice. Case-studies of real-time systems are particularly interesting. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Adaptive systems theory and practice
  • Architectural support
  • Case studies
  • Compiler support
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Design and Verification
  • Embedded systems
  • Energy management
  • Formal methods
  • Model-based development
  • Multicore real-time support
  • Multi-criticality analysis and support
  • Multimedia computing
  • Performance modelling
  • Probabilistic Real-Time Systems
  • QoS support
  • Real-time and dependability
  • Real-time databases
  • Real-time programming languages
  • Real-time sensor/actuator networks
  • Real-time systems middleware
  • Scheduling algorithms
  • Security and safety
  • Software engineering
  • System development tools
  • Systems integration
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Worst-case execution time estimation

Submissions will be considered for inclusion in the program based on their relevance to RTSS and the amount of time available for the BP session.

One author of every accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper during the conference. All the papers will be presented orally and in a poster session.

Submission Instructions

  • For a Work-in-Progress paper submission, a 2 to 4-page paper describing original on-going work is required. Please include Work-in-Progress in the title, i.e. “Work-In-Progress: Title of Paper”.
  • For a Journal Paper Presentation submission, a 1 to 2-page extended abstract summarizing the journal paper is required.  The abstract title should indicate that the submission is a previously accepted journal paper, i.e. “Journal-never-Presented: Title of Paper”.

Papers must be submitted as a single pdf document, and the length of submitted documents should NOT exceed the page limit including references and figures – submissions exceeding the page limits will not be reviewed.

Papers should be formatted as single-space, double-column (normal IEEE format), in a 10-point font. Templates are available at:

Accepted WiP papers will be included in the main RTSS proceedings. Accepted JnP papers will not appear in any printed form at the conference (since they are summaries of work published elsewhere).

The submissions should indicate the name of the author(s) clearly on the first page.
