25th International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems

Grenoble, France, October 4-6, 2017

RTNS is a friendly conference with a great sense of community that presents excellent opportunities for collaboration.

The purpose of the conference is to share ideas, experiences and information among academic researchers, developers and service providers in the field of real-time systems and networks.

RTNS 2017 will be in Grenoble, France.

RTNS 2017 is the 25th edition of the conference formerly known as RTS (Real-Time Systems, Paris). The first 12 editions of RTS were french-speaking events held in Paris in conjunction with the RTS Embedded System exhibition. Since its 13th edition, the conference language of RTNS has been english.

The proceedings will be published by the ACM in the International Conference Proceedings Series and indexed by the ACM digital library. ACM ICPS

Conference aims and topics

PDF version of the Call for Papers

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 Original unpublished papers on all aspects of real-time systems and networks are welcome.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:

The 11th Junior Researcher Workshop on Real-Time Computing is organized jointly with RTNS.

RTNS2017 > Submission

Instructions to authors

The papers are limited to 10 two-column pages in a font no smaller than 10 points. Submission format is PDF.

The proceedings should be published by the ACM ICPS (approval pending).The LaTeX formatting instructions as well as the Word template can be found here.

A selection of the best papers will be identified as outstanding papers; the authors of these papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the Springer Real-Time Systems journal. RTNS will have the artifact evaluation for the accepted papers, to guarantee the availability of source code and data to replicate the experiments.

Authors submitting a paper to RTNS confirm that neither the paper, nor a version of it, is under submission elsewhere nor will be submitted elsewhere before notification by RTNS, and that if the paper is accepted, at least one author will register by the special registration deadline, and present the paper at the conference.

He has served as Chief Architect for the Platform2012/STHORM project in STmicroelectronics, Grenoble in the period 2009-2013. He is also a professor at University of Bologna and has held visiting and consulting researcher positions at EPFL, IMEC, Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, Stanford University. Dr. Benini's research interests are in the design of energy-efficient digital systems with special emphasis on ultra-low-power System-on-Chip and green HPC systems. He is also active in the area of smart sensors and sensor networks for consumer, biomedical and Internet-of-Things applications. In these areas he has coordinated tens of funded projects, including an ERC Advanced Grant on Multi-scale thermal management of Computing Systems. He has been general chair of the Design Automation and Test in Europe Conference, of the Network on Chip Symposium and of the International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design. He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Circuits and Systems and the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems. He has published more than 700 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences, four books and several book chapters. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the ACM and a member of the Academia Europaea. He is the recipient of the 2016 IEEE CAS Mac Van Valkenburg award.

Visit Grenoble

The city, its layout, and its history then become much clearer:

At the center, the historic heart is dense, rich with a prestigious past going back more than 2000 years in history. To the west, a world renowned scientific complex. To the south, the urban sprawl accelerated by the 1968 winter Olympic Games and to the east, the university campus which welcomes 61,000 students.

Naturally Y-shaped thanks to the presence of the three alpine chains, Grenoble can be accessed from three points: one from the direction of Valence and Lyon, the other from the south and the Route Napoléon, and the last from Chambery and Italy.

A remarkable university and scientific population give Grenoble the image of a young, cosmopolitan city, one that is constantly on the move. The arrival and departure of the students and scientists mean that Grenoble never gets caught up with stereotypes. This is a free city!

Just as comfortable with culture as with sports, Grenoble offers a wide variety of activities. On the cultural side, how could we mention Grenoble without talking about the Museum of Grenoble and le Magasin (National Contemporary Art Center), leaders when it comes to art. Not to mention France's first house of culture, inaugurated in 1968 by André Malraux. Today known as the MC2, this cultural center hosts a multitude of music, film, and theatre festivals, as well as areas dedicated to electronic music.

As for sports, Grenoble is just a few minutes from several ski resorts and you can set out on a mountain hike from the city center, via La Bastille. The city also boasts the first urban via ferrata in France.

With its 300 km of flat bike paths, Grenoble is also a cyclist's paradise.
