Submission Guidelines

Second round is coming!

The first round of RTNS is over. You can now submit your papers to the second round, before Jan 25th. New contributions will be reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Papers marked at “major revisions” in the first round will be reviewed by the same reviewers as in the first round.

Double Submission Model

RTNS 2023 adopts a double submission model, with two rounds.

Submissions done at the first round may be:

  • Rejected: no re-submission possible to the second round
  • Accepted: accepted papers will receive a DOI, the list will be published on the conference website, and the author may put an author version on their own web page. The publication will occur after the conference.
  • Under major revision: the paper may be re-submitted in the second round and will be evaluated again by the same reviewers.

Submissions done in the second round may be only accepted or rejected. The follow diagram should provide an overview of the submission model:

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit English-language research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work, not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The papers are limited to 10 two-column pages (not including references) in ACM conference format. The proceedings will be published by ACM in ICPS. RTNS accepts only full papers. All accepted papers can extend to 11 pages (excluding references) with the extra page only to address reviewers’ comments but not to add new content.

Submission is open on Easychair

RTNS tends to be a community, not a bunch of individual experts. Then, authors are invited to present the results in a way such that the main ideas can be understood by any real-time researcher and lead to discussions and exchanges.

Authors of outstanding papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a special issue of the Springer Real-Time Systems journal. The extended papers must have at least 35% new content. Best papers and best student papers awards will be presented at the conference, along with an award for the best presentation.
