Scope of the Conference:
RTCSA 2002 will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the technology of real-time computing systems and applications. The conference has the following goals:
1. to investigate advances in real-time systems and applications;
2. to promote interaction among real-time systems and applications;
3. to evaluate the maturity and directions of real-time system technology.

Conference attendees will explore the best current ideas on real-time computing systems and applications. Papers describing new ideas, promising approaches, experiences with practical and research systems, and work in progress are considered particularly appropriate. Proposals for panel sessions are also solicited.

Papers on all aspects of real-time systems are welcome, including (but not limited to) scheduling and resource management, real-time requirements and designs specification, formal methods, modeling, operating systems, databases, file systems, networks and communications, multimedia applications, software systems, programming languages and programming environments, architecture, middleware and APIs, instrumentation, fault tolerance, software engineering, performance analysis, signal-processing, embedded systems, distributed control, responsive systems and mission-critical systems, computer-based control applications, tool support, case studies, and any core application area in real-time systems.

Papers should describe original research, and should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages (or approximately 5000 words). All accepted submissions will appear in the proceedings published. If possible, submissions should be made electronically, either in postscript or PDF format. The cover page should contain the title, author's full name(s), affiliation, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, an abstract and keywords.

Details on submission guidelines will be posted at the RTCSA'02 web page (

While electronic submissions are preferred, postal submissions will be accepted for review, provided they arrive by the submission deadline of November 28 December 5, 2001. All authors taking this option should mail four (4) copies of their submitted papers to A text file containing paper title, full name, affiliations, complete addresses, phone and fax numbers, email addresses, and an abstract of up to 150 words should also be emailed to
