Call for Contributions: Demo Session

The demo session at RTAS 2018 will provide a forum for researchers to give a demonstration of their work with concrete systems, tools and prototypes in all areas of real-time embedded technology and applications as part of the CPSWeek joint poster/demo session. Authors are invited to submit short technical abstracts (up to 2 pages) describing what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. In keeping with the spirit of the main symposium, submissions with an emphasis on system and application aspects are especially encouraged. Authors of papers accepted at RTAS 2018 are welcome to propose a demo of their work.

Submission of Papers
Submission website:

Demo abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF. Submissions will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as the potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference. Demo abstracts must clearly describe what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. If a demonstration requires special arrangements (in addition to a table, power, and wireless connectivity), please describe them clearly in the paper.

Demo abstracts should adhere to the IEEE 10-point, two-column conference format (, and be 1 to 2 pages long, including all references and appendices. Demo abstracts must have titles prepended with “Demo Abstract:”.

By submitting a demo abstract, the authors agree and confirm that, in case of acceptance, at least one author will register for the conference and present the demo in person. Instructions for preparing the final version of accepted demo papers and their presentation will be sent along with the notification. Authors of accepted demo papers are expected to give a brief presentation to the RTAS 2018 audience, followed by an interactive demo session on April 11, 2018.
