           43rd IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS 2022)


                     December 2022, Houston, USA

                 Submission Deadline: May 26th, 2022


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’22, celebrating the 43rd 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 


RTSS’22 welcomes submissions of high-quality, original research papers 

related to both real-time systems’ theory and practice. Submissions can 

go to either the real-time systems track (Track 1) or the design and 

applications track (Track 2) which covers Cyber-Physical Systems, HW-SW 

integration and system-level design, and Internet of Things (IoT). To be 

in scope, ALL submissions must address some form of real-time 

requirements such as deadlines, response times or delay/latency. All 

accepted papers will appear in the main program and proceedings.

RTSS especially welcomes new and emerging topics provided that they 

address some aspects of real-time requirements as stated above. Such 

topics may include machine learning techniques for design and analysis 

of real-time systems, system design approaches for achieving real-time 

machine learning, resource management in autonomous systems, 

system-level solutions for real-time applications exploiting 

domain-specific accelerators, etc.

Note the above list of topics is intended only as a rough guide and 

should not be understood as an exclusive list. Papers breaking new 

ground, departing from established subfields, or challenging the status 

quo are most welcome and are encouraged. Empirical survey-based research 

focused on the real-time systems field is also welcome. This type of 

research uses surveys, questionnaires, interviews, use-cases or other 

empirical techniques to obtain information about the past / current / 

future state of play in the research, design, development, verification, 

validation, and deployment of real-time systems. (Note literature 

surveys that classify, review, and summarize existing research papers 

are not considered empirical research and are not in scope of the 


All accepted papers will appear in the main program and proceedings. A 

selection of papers will receive recognition as outstanding papers, and 

will be highlighted as such in the proceedings. Best paper and best 

student paper awards will be presented at the conference, along with an 

award for the best presentation. (Note that submissions are eligible for 

the best student paper award provided that the first author is a student 

as of the submission deadline).


Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must describe original work not previously published or 

concurrently submitted elsewhere. Papers based on previous work presented

at workshops are eligible for submission – if the workshop paper has a 

digital object identifier (DOI) then the submission must contain at least 

30% new material. All submitted papers must comply with the double-blind 

submission requirements. The main body of each submitted paper is limited 

to 11 pages of technical content with additional pages permitted for 

bibliography only. Submissions must be formatted according to IEEE 

conference paper guidelines.
