Conference aims and topics

RTNS (Real-Time Networks and Systems) is a friendly and inclusive conference with a great sense of community that presents excellent opportunities for collaboration. Original unpublished papers on all aspects of real-time systems and networks are welcome. 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.
  • 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.
  • Software technologies for real-time systems: model-driven engineering, programming languages, compilers, WCET-aware compilation and parallelization strategies, middleware, Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS), 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: Networks on Chip (NoC), Time-Sensitive Networks (TSN), end-to-end latency analysis, wired and wireless communication networks, fieldbuses, networked control systems, sensor networks.
  • 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.
