The 19th IEEE


April 9-11, 2013
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA


15 October 2012 (firm, no extensions)

RTAS’13, the nineteenth in a series of annual conferences sponsored by IEEE,
will be held in Philadelphia, USA, as part of the Cyber-Physical Systems
Week (CPSWeek) between the 9th and the 11th of April, 2013. CPS Week 2013
will bring together four leading conferences, the International Conference
on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN’13), the International
Conference on Hybrid Systems (HSCC’13), the International Conference on
Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS’13), the International Conference on High
Confidence Networked Systems (HiCoNS’13) and RTAS’13.

RTAS 2013 invites papers describing original systems and applications, case
studies, methodologies and applied algorithms that contribute to the state
of practice in the broad field of embedded and open real-time systems and
computing. The scope of RTAS 2012 will consist of four tracks: Applications,

Systems, RTOSs and Tools, Applied Methodologies and Foundations,
Hardware/Software Integration and Co-design, and Wireless Sensor Networks.

Track 1: Applications, Systems, RTOSs, and Tools. Papers submitted to this
track are aimed at presenting specific systems and implementations. They
must introduce the application context and clearly define motivating
application examples. Authors must introduce the related research
challenges and illustrate the theoretical foundations of the methodology
adopted in the considered application/tool/RTOS, with applicability.
Papers in this session must include a section on experimental results with
a real implementation of the proposed system or applicability to an
industrial case study or working system. The experiment/use case discussion
must highlight problems/bottlenecks encountered in the implementation and
show the measurements/evaluations on the prototype. Simulation-based
results are acceptable when the authors motivate the impossibility of an
actual system development.

Track 2: Applied Methodologies and Foundations. Papers submitted to this
track are aimed at basic methodologies and algorithms that are applicable
to real systems to solve specific problems. Authors must introduce the
application context and clearly define motivating application examples.
The system models and any assumptions used in the derivation of the
results must be applicable to real systems and reflect actual needs.
Papers must also include a section on experimental results, preferably on
real case studies or models of real systems, although the use of synthetic
workloads and models is acceptable if motivated. Papers failing to address
applicability as defined in the previous guidelines are not considered
as acceptable.

Track 3: Wireless Sensor Networks. Real-time communication and computation
over sensor networks are enabling sensing/control/actuator networks across
emergency response, critical infrastructure protection, medical care,
intelligent transportation, and smart manufacturing. Topics of interest
for this track include (but are not limited to): sensor network
applications and deployment experiences; real-time operating systems and
middleware for sensor networks; real-time operation issues in sensor
networks; distributed networked sensing; actuation and control; power
and energy management/harvesting; wide-area sensing services; detection,
classification, and estimation; localization and time synchronization;
security and privacy.

Track 4: Hardware-Software Co-design. This track focuses on design
methodologies and tools for hardware/software integration and co-design
of modern embedded systems for real-time applications. General topics
relevant to this track include, but are not limited to, architecture
description languages and tools, WCET analysis, software architectures,
design space exploration, synthesis and optimization. Of special interest
are SoC design for real-time applications, special purpose functional
units, specialized memory structures, multi-core chips and communication
aspects, FPGA simulation and prototyping, software simulation and
compilation for novel architectures and applications, as well as power,
timing and predictability analyses.


All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. Submissions can
be made through the RTAS’13 web site (http://www.rtas.org). The material
must be unpublished and not under submission elsewhere. Submissions should
be no more than 10 pages in IEEE two-column, 10pt format. Papers that do
not comply with these restrictions may not be considered for review.
