RTAS 2009 seeks papers describing significant contributions both to the state of the art and the state of the practice in the broad field of embedded and open real-time systems and computing. The scope of RTAS 2009 consists of the traditional core area of real-time and embedded systems infrastructure and theory, as well as two additional areas of special emphasis: cyber-physical systems and embedded applications, benchmarks and tools.

 Core Area. Real-time and Embedded Systems: 

This has a focus on embedded and real-time systems. Papers should describe significant contributions to infrastructure, system support, or theoretic foundations for real-time or embedded computing. Topics include all of those associated with real-time or embedded computing platforms and techniques, including:

 o ad-hoc networks of embedded computers, real-time communications  o real-time resource management and scheduling  o embedded system security  o programming languages and software engineering for real-time or 
   embedded systems
 o distributed real-time information/ databases  o kernels, operating systems and middleware for real-time or 
   embedded systems
 o support for QoS
 o energy aware real-time systems
 o real-time system modeling and analysis  o formal methods  o control theoretic models and performance feedback control  o hardware / software codesign  o WCET analysis  o compilation for real-time or embedded systems  o novel hardware or system architectures for real-time or 
   embedded systems

 Area A. Cyber-Physical Systems: 

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) refers to the tight integration of physical systems with networked sensing, computation, and actuation to realize systems that exhibit new capabilities with unprecedented dependability, safety, security, and efficiency. Applications of cyber-physical systems range from key industry sectors including transportation (automobiles, smart highways, mass transportation and infrastructure, avionics, aviation, airspace management), large-scale critical infrastructures (structures such as buildings and bridges, human environments, the power grid), defense systems, health care (medical devices and health management networks), tele-physical operations (e.g., tele-medicine), and consumer electronics (video games, audio/video processing, and mobile communication devices). This special track calls for papers that identify scientific foundations and technologies that integrate cyber- concepts with the dynamics of physical and engineered systems, with an emphasis on physical processes that include HW/SW co-design. Papers on all aspects of cyber-physical systems will be given due consideration. 
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

 o integrated design methods for CPS
 o HW/SW co-design for CPS
 o simulation and emulation of CPS
 o integrated tool chains for CPS
 o scalable CPS Architectures
 o composability of software, hardware and physical components  o analysis of cyber-physical systems with multiple temporal and 
   spatial scales
 o high-confidence and security in CPS

 Area B. Real-Time and Embedded Applications, Benchmarks and Tools: 

The focus of this track is on contributions associated with systems that are actually deployed in commercial industry, military, or other production environments, including automotive, avionics, telecommunications, industrial control, aerospace, consumer electronics, and sensors. Papers in this area include, but are not limited to challenges, requirements, model problems, and constraints associated with various application domains, use of real-time and embedded technologies in meeting particular system requirements, performance, scalability, reliability, security, or other assessments of real-time and embedded technologies for particular application domains, mining of architectural and design patterns from applications, and technology transition lessons learned. Papers on efforts to establish a set of standard real-time benchmarks are specifically sought, composed of or derived from real applications as well as synthetic benchmarks with representative algorithms. We also encourage papers addressing issues in tools for the development of reliable, scalable, and efficient real-time and embedded systems. Experience papers are also especially encouraged, which may be less formal than traditional research papers, as well as proposals for panels to offer a broader view of industrial activity on a particular subject.

                        SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

All papers must be submitted electronically, in Portable Document Format (PDF).  Instructions for submission will be available at the
RTAS'09 website: http://www.rtas.org Submissions must meet the following criteria:

  - A paper must be original material that has neither been previously
    published nor is currently under review by another conference or
    journal, and
  - Submitted papers should be no longer than 10 pages in IEEE 10-point,
    two-column conference format.

The program committee of each track is independently responsible for reviewing its papers, and all accepted papers will appear in the proceedings.
