Original unpublished papers on all aspects of real-time systems and networks are welcome. Note that RTNS prefers original results, raising questions and discussions, to technical advances understandable only by a few experts.

RTNS covers a wide spectrum of topics in real-time and embedded systems, including, but not limited to:

* Real-time applications design and evaluation: automotive, avionics, space, railways, telecommunications, process control, multimedia.
* Real-time aspects of emerging smart systems: cyber-physical systems and emerging applications, real-time big data, real-time edge/fog and cloud computing, smart grid.
* Real-time system design and analysis: real-time tasks modeling, task/message scheduling, evaluation, mixed-criticality systems, Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis, quality of service, security, thermal and power-aware system design.
* Software technologies for real-time systems: model-driven engineering, programming languages, compilers, WCET-aware compilation and parallelization strategies, middleware, Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS), virtualization, and hypervisors.
* Formal specification and verification: application of formal models, such as model checking, satisfiability modulo theories, or constraint programming, to solve real-time problems.
* Real-time distributed systems: fault tolerance, time synchronization, task/messages allocation, adaptability and reconfiguration, publisher/subscriber protocols, distributed real-time database.
* Real-time networks: Time-Sensitive Networks (TSN), industrial IoT, wired and wireless sensor and actuator networks, SDN, 5G, Networks on Chip (NoC), end-to-end latency analysis.
* Hardware support for real-time systems: hardware/software co-design, power/temperature-aware techniques, design of predictable hardware, multi-core and many-core platforms, hardware accelerators, cache-related issues, interconnect, and memory.

Double submission model
RTNS 2023 adopts a double submission model, with two rounds.

Submissions done at the first round may be:

Rejected: no re-submission possible to the second round
Accepted: accepted papers will receive a DOI, the list will be published on the conference WEB site, and the author may put an author version on their own web page. The publication will occur after the conference.
Under major revision: the paper may be re-submitted in the second round and will be evaluated again by the same reviewers.

Submissions done in the second round may be only accepted or rejected.

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit English-language research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work, not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The papers are limited to 10 two-column pages (not including references) in ACM conference format. The proceedings will be published by well known editor (ongoing discussions). RTNS accepts only full papers. All accepted papers can extend to 11 pages (excluding references) with the extra page only to address reviewers’ comments but not to add new content.

RTNS tends to be a community, not a bunch of individual experts. Then, authors are invited to present the results in a way such that the main ideas can be understood by any real-time researcher and lead to discussions and exchanges.

As in previous editions, some specific proposal will be done to authors of outstanding papers (discussions still ongoing). Best papers and best student papers awards will be presented at the conference, along with an award for the best presentation.


RTNS 2023 : International conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems will take place in Dortmund, Germany. It’s a 2 days event starting on Jun 7, 2023 (Wednesday) and will be winded up on Jun 8, 2023 (Thursday).

RTNS 2023 falls under the following areas: REAL-TIME SYSTEMS, FORMAL METHODS, CYBER-PHYSICAL SYSTEMS, etc. Submissions for this Conference can be made by Jan 17, 2023. Authors can expect the result of submission by Feb 25, 2023. Upon acceptance, authors should submit the final version of the manuscript on or before Apr 16, 2023 to the official website of the Conference.

Please check the official event website for possible changes before you make any travelling arrangements. Generally, events are strict with their deadlines. It is advisable to check the official website for all the deadlines.
