Call for papers

Dear authors,

embedded real time systems still undergo development challenges driven by computation, energy, timeliness, or safety demands whilst addressing various design decisions, standards, or architectures. Industrial and research developments continuously have to face those challenges and adapt existing technologies or develop new innovative approaches. For instance, the automotive domain evolves towards an electrified and connected infrastructure intertwined with advanced driver assistant systems or autonomous driving. The dense existence of tools, standards, or frameworks exacerbate to understand systems comprehensively and reusing legacy code may further have spurious influence during the various development cycles.

The SEERTS workshop focuses on technologies to alleviate the spurious influence of diverse constraints in the embedded real-time domain and presents innovative solutions applicable in industrial applications. The easychair CFP is also available.


  • 14.12.2017 Deadline for submissions
  • 31.01.2017 Notifications and reviews
  • 14.02.2017 Submission of camera-ready versions
  • 05.03.2018 Workshop
  • 06 – 09.03.2018 Conference


Please submit your paper in IEEE format (.pdf available at by 14.12.2017 23:59 CET via easychair:

The contribution should consist of 3 - 6 pages that have a well defined scope as well as an evaluation section stating the technology’s applicability to an industrial or prototypical use case. A rough overview of related topics is given in the following Figure:


Typical technologies involve:

  • Parallelization strategies
  • Scheduling analyzes
  • Tracing methods
  • Resource management
  • Simulation technologies
  • WCET analysis
  • Resource blocking analysis and protocols
  • Models and domain specific languages
  • Domain specific extensions of existing embedded real-time technologies

Submissions will be reviewed by at least three committee members.

Accepted submissions must prepare a camera ready submission until 14.02.2017 and attend the workshop to present the contribution among a 25 minute presentation (with slides) at the venue (SE conference). Each presentation is given a 5 minute discussion with the audience.

We are happy to receive any contributions within the described application field and are looking forward to seeing you in Ulm,

Robert Höttger & Jörg Tessmer
