RTAS’18, the 24th in a series of annual conferences sponsored by the IEEE, will be held in Porto, Portugal, as part of the Cyber-Physical Systems Week (CPSWeek) in April, 2018. The scope of RTAS’18 consists of three tracks: (1) Applications, Real-Time Operating Systems and Run-Time Software, (2) Applied Methodologies and Foundations, and (3) Architectures and Hardware-related Analyses for Real-Time and Embedded Systems.

Expanded scope: RTAS aims to become the premier conference venue for publishing systems research related to timing issues. The broad scope of RTAS’18 ranges from traditional hard real-time systems to latency-sensitive systems with soft real-time requirements.
