*Scope of the Conference*

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’21, celebrating the 42nd 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 research.

RTSS’21 welcomes submissions of high-quality, original research papers
related to both real-time system theory and practice. Submissions can go to
either the real-time system track (*Track 1*) or the design and application
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 delays/latency. All accepted papers will
appear in the main program and proceedings.*

RTSS’21 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.

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. Authors of outstanding
papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a
special issue of a journal. 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).

*Track 1: Real-Time System Track*

The objective of this track is to promote cutting-edge research in
real-time systems, especially new and emerging topics. Areas of interest
include, but are not limited to the following: operating systems, networks,
middleware, compilers, tools, scheduling, QoS support, resource management,
testing and debugging, design and verification, modeling, WCET analysis,
performance analysis, fault tolerance, security, and system experimentation
and deployment experiences.
*Track 2: Design and Application Track*

This track aims to highlight the newest research achievements in designs,
implementations and applications that must attend to some aspects of
real-time requirements.  Continuing with the success in previous years, the
track will particularly focus on four specialized areas:
Cyber-Physical Systems

CPS applications (such as transportation, healthcare, industrial control,
etc.) interact with the physical worlds. Hence, they do possess real-time
requirements. Papers are welcomed that identify scientific foundations and
technologies that advance the state-of-the-art for CPS. Topics of interest
include (but are not limited to) foundations of CPS, design methods,
simulation/emulation for CPS, tools chains, CPS architectures, security and
privacy, hardware/software compositions that include physical components,
performance analysis, robustness and safety, and analysis techniques and
tools especially those with multiple temporal and spatial scales.
HW-SW Integration and System-Level Design

This area focuses on design methodologies and tools for hardware/software
integration and co-design of modern embedded systems for real-time
applications. Topics include (but are not limited to) architecture
description languages and tools, hardware 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 commuhttp://2021.rtss
.org/organizers/nication aspects, FPGA simulation and prototyping, software
simulation and compilation for novel architectures and applications, as
well as power, thermal, timing and predictability analyses.
Internet of Things (IoT)

Grand challenges in IoT include extremely constrained resources (energy
supply, storage and computational power) in IoT devices, unprecedented
scalability requirements as well as uncertain dynamics in their operating
environments. Submissions are welcomed that build on solid theoretical
foundations, present empirical development, and experimental evaluations
for empowering IoT applications. Of special interest is research addressing
aspects of scalability, interoperability, uncertainty, reliability,
security, power management, energy scavenging, architectures, operating
systems, middleware and programming abstractions, protocols, modelling,
analysis and performance evaluation.
*Paper Submissions*

Submitted papers must describe original work not previously published or
concurrently submitted elsewhere. 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 the bibliography and acknowledgments only. Submissions must be
formatted according to IEEE conference paper guidelines.

*Submission page and instructions:* http://2021.rtss.org/submission/

*Conference Highlights*

The RTSS’21 Hot Topics Day showcases new trends and developments related to
the real-time system field. Hot Topics Day includes special sessions,
tutorials, as well as half-day and full-day workshops. The conference also
includes a Brief Presentations session and RTSS@Work demonstrations.
