Visible to the public RTCSA 2020 - VirtualConflict Detection Enabled

26th IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA 2020)

RTCSA 2020 is going to be held virtually due to COVID-19. The RTCSA conference series (now at its 26th edition) brings together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology and the theory to design and develop time-sensitive applications. All traditional applications in which temporal aspects need to be considered are in the scope of the conference. CPS, (Industrial) IoT, embedded systems, fog/edge/cloud computing are just notable examples. RTCSA welcomes both research and industrial papers that describe research or technical aspects in the area 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.
