Call for Papers

The workshop is seeking original research and position papers dealing with hot topics in real-time networks. Innovative and/or controversial ideas are specially sought. This year, RTN 2009 particularly encourages submissions on Wireless Sensor Networks and Applications. Prospective authors are also encouraged to address any issues about real-time, QoS and dependability in computer networks. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless Sensor Networks and Applications (highlight of this year)
  • Real-Time Tracking
  • Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things
  • Wireless Technologies (IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee, WiMax, UWB)
  • Communication Protocols: ( MAC and Network layer issues, distributed scheduling, etc.)
  • Networked Embedded Systems
  • Infrastructures for Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing Systems
  • Performance Evaluation, Simulation and Modeling Tools
  • Real-Time Network Management
  • Time Synchronization
  • Quality of Service and Dependable Systems
  • Domotics, Automotive Networks
  • Implementation, Experimentation and Case Studies

To submit your paper (PDF) to the workshop, please visit the RTN'09 online submission system and login with your account. Follow the instructions to submit your manuscript.

Submission of papers: Submitted papers should follow the IEEE conference format and should not exceed 6 pages in length. File formats can be either pdf or postscript. The papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee. All accepted papers will be made available to all participants one week before the workshop so that contributions can be examined prior to the event. Each presentation session will have a “rapporteur”, which enables to enrich the proceedings with a summary of each paper and corresponding presentation and discussions.
