The IEEE RTCSA conference series (now at its 28th edition) brings together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology and the theory to design and develop time-sensitive systems and applications. Representative examples include CPS, IoT, embedded systems, and fog/edge/cloud computing. IEEE RTCSA welcomes academic and industrial papers describing innovative research or technical results of embedded and real-time systems. Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society on IEEExplore and will be indexed by most search engines including Scopus, Web of Science, DBLP.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. IEEE RTCSA 2022 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Submission Guidelines

Both research and industry papers are solicited. The submitted manuscript must describe original work not previously published and not concurrently submitted elsewhere. We welcome high quality papers, adhering to the following two formats:

  • Full Paper format: paper must fit within 10 pages
  • Short Paper format: paper must fit within 6 pages

Both types of submission must be formatted according to the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-columns, single-space, 10pt) and must include references and acknowledgements within the page limit.

In some cases, the Program Committee may decide to accept a full paper submission as a short paper, in which case, the authors will be required to reduce its length for the final version. Conference content will be published by the IEEE Computer Society on IEEExplore and will be indexed by most search engines including Scopus, Web of Science, DBLP.

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one author will register at full registration rate to the conference and present the paper (in person or via a teleconferencing system).


The diffusion of COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) is constantly monitored by the conference organizers. Since safety of participants is of paramount importance to the organizers, would the infection pose a threat to participants according to the WHO, we will allow speakers the remote presentation via a video-conferencing system.
