RTCSA 2017 is going to be held in Hsinchu, Taiwan and organized by NCTU. The RTCSA conference series carry on with the tradition and bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology of embedded and real-time systems and their emerging applications including the Internet of things and cyber-physical systems.
RTCSA seeks both research and industry track 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. More information about RTCSA 2017 can be found at
The 23rd edition of RTCSA will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry to promote cross-fertilization and discuss advances and trends in the technology of embedded and real-time systems and their emerging applications, including the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems.

  • Regular Paper Submission

    Both research and industry track papers are solicited. The submitted manuscript must describe original work not previously published and not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Submissions should be no more than 10 pages in the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-column, single-space, 10pt). Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore, and will be EI indexed. The prospective authors should submit their papers through the submission web page at

  • Special Issues of SCI(E)-indexed Journals

    Selected papers will be recommended for submission of extended versions to the special issues of journals, such as the ACM Transactions on Cyber Physical Systems (application in progress) and Journal of Systems Architecture: Embedded Software (application in progress).
