                 RTCSA 2013 Call for Papers
              web site: http://www.rtcsa.org/
-----------------------------------------------------------

The 19th IEEE International Conference on Embedded and 
Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications, August 
19 - 21, 2013, Taipei, Taiwan

Embedded software has become a necessity in almost every 
aspect of our daily life. The types of embedded software 
range from self-contained applications to those embedded in
various devices and services, such as mobile phones, vital 
sign sensors, medication dispensers, home appliances, 
engine ignition systems, etc. Many such systems are mission
/life-critical and performance-sensitive. The 19th IEEE 
International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing
Systems and Applications (RTCSA 2013) will bring together 
researchers and developers from academia and industry for 
the advancing of the technology of embedded and real-time 
systems, and ubiquitous computing applications. The conference 
aims at the investigation of the advances in embedded and 
real-time systems and ubiquitous computing applications, the 
promoting of interaction among people in the areas of embedded 
computing, real-time computing and ubiquitous computing, and 
the evaluating of the maturity and directions of embedded and 
real-time system and ubiquitous computing technology. RTCSA 
2013 invites submissions of papers with a high quality original 
research and development for the conference tracks: 
(1) Embedded Systems, (2) Real-time Systems, and (3) Ubiquitous 
Computing/Cyber-physical Systems.

SCOPES:  Following the tradition of IEEE RTCSA, the conference 
has three tracks: embedded systems, real-time systems, and 
ubiquitous computing. The topics of interest include, but are 
not limited to:

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS TRACK: 
-System level design and HW/SW co-design 
-Embedded system design practices 
-Operating systems and scheduling 
-Software and compiler issues for heterogeneous multi-core 
 embedded platform 
-Embedded system architecture 
-Networks-on-chip design 
-Power/thermal-aware design issues 
-Memory issues for multi-core embedded platform 
-Hardware and software techniques for fault tolerance 
-Reconfigurable computing architecture and software support

REAL-TIME SYSTEMS TRACK:
-Real-time operating systems
-Real-time scheduling
-Timing analysis
-Programming languages and run-time systems 
-Middleware systems  
-Design and analysis tools 
-Communication networks and protocols 
-Media processing and transmissions 
-Real-time aspects of wireless sensor networks 
-Energy aware real-time methods 
-Databases 
-Case studies and applications

UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING/CYBER-PHYSICAL SYSTEMS TRACK: 
-Real-time issues in ubiquitous computing and cyber-physical 
 systems  
-Tools, infrastructures and architectures for ubiquitous 
 computing and cyber-physical systems 
-Devices and enabling technologies for ubiquitous computing 
 and cyber-physical systems 
-Design and verification methodologies for cyber-physical systems 
-Applications of wireless sensor networks 
-Ubiquitous computing applications 
-Cyber-physical systems applications 
-User interfaces and interaction design issues for ubiquitous 
 computing 
-Privacy and security issues and implications of ubiquitous 
 computing 
-Location-dependent and context-aware computing 
-Evaluation methods for ubiquitous computing devices, systems, 
 and applications


Regular Paper Submission:

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 as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. 
The prospective authors should submit their papers through 
http://rtcsa.org/Submissions.aspx


Work-in-Progress Session:

This session provides an opportunity for researchers attending 
IEEE RTCSA to present and discuss their research. More detailed 
information is available on the web.


ACM TECS Special issue:

There will be a special issue of RTCSA in ACM Transactions of 
Embedded Computing Systems. Selected best papers will be 
invited to submit an extended version to the special issue 
for further review. More information on the special issue 
please see http://www.rtcsa.org/
