RTAS’20, the 26th in a series of annual conferences sponsored by the IEEE, will be held in Sydney, Australia, as part of the Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet-of-Things Week (CPS-IoT Week 2020) from the 21st to the 24th of April, 2020. RTAS ’20 is being organised in cooperation with Usenix.
RTAS’20 has two main tracks, and opportunities for Brief Presentations and Demonstrations of Work in Progress.
- Track 1: Applications, Operating Systems and Run-Time Software; and
- Track 2: Applied Methodologies and Foundations.
Expanded scope: RTAS is a top-tier conference with a focus on systems research related to embedded systems and time-sensitive systems (of any size). The broad scope of RTAS’20 ranges from traditional hard real-time systems to embedded systems without explicit timing requirements, including latency-sensitive systems with informal or soft real-time requirements.
Dear CPS-IoT Week Community,
Wish all of you and your family safe during this challenging time.
We have been monitoring the developing COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the guidelines released by relevant national authorities, CPS-IoT Week 2020 is still scheduled to happen 21-24 April, but in an entirely virtual format due to the pandemic. The details of the virtual format will be provided soon.
In accordance to the event guidelines, at least one author registration will be required for each paper to be included in the proceedings. The registration fee has been reduced to a flat fee of AU$340 accordingly. We will arrange to refund the registration fee differences in the following weeks. At the meantime, if you have a non-author registration and would like to cancel your registration to get full refund, please email us (email@example.com@gmail.com).
Dear RTAS community, the following has just been posted on the CPS-IoT Week home page:
“We have been monitoring the developing COVID-19 outbreak. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please email us for further details.”
We obviously regret not seeing you in Sydney next month, but this is unavoidable given the circumstances. We are working out how to organise this fully-virtual conference and will keep you posted as we learn more.
Due to RTSS being deferred, we had to make new arrangements for the RTAS PC meeting, which was to be co-located with RTSS in Hong Kong. The new notification date is 20 December. We will attempt to shift the camera-ready deadline as will, but cannot make any guarantees at this time.
