Welcome to RTNS 2020 webpages

COVID-19 information: The conference is scheduled to be held as planned. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. We are following updates on the situation from the French government, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We urge all attendees to keep informed on risks, precautions, and symptoms to make educated decisions.

Talks from the main conference can be live-streamed. We will make remote presentation arrangements with authors who are not able to attend due to travel restrictions.


RTNS is a friendly and inclusive conference with a great sense of community that presents excellent opportunities for collaboration. Original unpublished papers on all aspects of real-time systems and networks are welcome. RTNS covers a wide-spectrum of topics in real-time and embedded systems, including, but not limited to:

  •  Real-time applications design and evaluation: automotive, avionics, space, railways, telecommunications, process control, multimedia.
  • Real-time aspects of emerging smart systems: cyber-physical systems and emerging applications, real-time big data, real-time edge/fog and cloud computing, smart grid.
  • Real-time system design and analysis: real-time tasks modeling, task/message scheduling, evaluation, mixed-criticality systems, Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis, quality of service, security.
  • Software technologies for real-time systems:​ model-driven engineering, programming languages, compilers, WCET-aware compilation and parallelization strategies, middleware, Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS), virtualization, hypervisors.
  • Formal specification and verification​: application of formal models, such as model checking, satisfiability modulo theories or constraint programming, to solve real-time problems.
  • Real-time distributed systems: fault tolerance, time synchronization, task/messages allocation, adaptability and reconfiguration, publisher/subscriber protocols, distributed real-time database
  • Real-time networks: ​Networks on Chip (NoC), wired and wireless sensor and actuator networks, Time-Sensitive Networks (TSN), industrial IoT, SDN, 5G, end-to-end latency analysis.
  • Hardware support for real-time systems​: ​hardware/software co-design, power/temperature-aware techniques, design of predictable hardware, multi-core and many-core platforms, hardware accelerators, cache related issues, interconnect and memory.
