Theme and topics of interest

ECRTS is the premier European venue for presenting research into the broad area of real-time and embedded systems. Along with RTSS and RTAS, ECRTS ranks as one of the three top international conferences on real-time systems. Papers on all aspects of real-time systems are welcome. These include, but are not limited to:

APPLICATIONS: consumer and multimedia; process and industrial control; smart energy, smart buildings; health; avionics, aerospace; automotive; telecommunications; cyber-physical systems.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND HARDWARE: communication networks; embedded devices; hardware/software co-design; power-aware and other resource-constrained techniques; multicore and manycore architectures for real-time and safety; time engines and time synchronization; wireless sensor networks.

SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGIES: middleware, operating systems, run-time environments; virtualization and isolation; software architectures; programming languages and compiler support; component-based approaches; distribution technologies.

SYSTEM DESIGN AND ANALYSIS: modelling and formal methods for design and analysis; probabilistic analysis; quality of service support; safety, reliability, security and survivability; mixed critical systems; scheduling and schedulability analysis; worst-case execution time analysis; validation and verification techniques.


Full papers must be submitted electronically through our web form in a pdf format. The material must be unpublished and not under submission elsewhere. Submissions must be in the same format as in the final published proceedings (10 pages maximum, 2 columns, 10 pt). The paper must be self-contained, but an appendix with supplementary material of up to 2 pages is permitted. Papers exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed. Note that the submission deadline is a firm deadline and will not be extended. A selection of the best papers will receive outstanding paper awards, and will be highlighted as such in the conference proceedings. These papers will form the shortlist for a best paper award, which will be presented at the conference. At ECRTS'15, we aim to be more inclusive and thus accept a larger number of high quality papers than in recent years.


Following a successful tradition at ECRTS, there will be a special Work in Progress (WiP) session. This session is intended for presentation of recent and on-going work. There will also be a continuation of a number of successful Satellite Workshops including: OSPERT: Operating Systems Platforms for Embedded Real-Time applications, WCET: Worst-Case Execution Time analysis, WATERS: Workshop on Analysis Tools and methodologies for Embedded and Real-time Systems, and RTSOPS: Real-Time Scheduling Open Problems Seminar. A separate call for papers will be issued later for both the WiP session and satellite workshops. Please visit the website at
