Special Issue Call for Papers:

Scope and Objective

Embedded software has become a necessity in almost every aspect of our daily life. The types of embedded software range from self-contained applications to those embedded in various devices and services, such as mobile phones, vital sign sensors, medication dispensers, home appliances, engine ignition systems, etc. Many such systems are mission/life-critical and performance-sensitive.

This special issue invites original and high-quality papers that describe research or technical aspects in the area of real-time and embedded systems. It aims at the evaluating of the maturity and directions of embedded and real-time system and ubiquitous computing technology and the investigation of the advances and trends in the technology of embedded and real-time systems and their emerging applications, including the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics considered for this special issue:

  • Real-Time Operating Systems and Scheduling
  • Timing Analysis
  • Design and Analysis Tools
  • Real-Time Aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Energy Aware Real-Time Methods
  • Embedded System Architectures
  • Multi-Core Embedded Systems
  • Non-Voltaile Memory and Storage
  • Embedded Systems and Design Methods for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Ubiquitous and Distributed Embedded Systems and Networks
  • Applications and Case Studies of IoT and CPS

Notes for Prospective Authors

Authors of the selected best papers from the 23rd IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA 2017) are invited to submit an extended version of their papers to Journal of Systems Architecture for possible inclusion of this special issue. In addition to RTCSA best papers, submissions of non-RTCSA papers that fit the focus of this special issue are welcome. All submissions will be reviewed equally in terms of technical contribution, soundness, and innovation. They should be submitted via the Journal of Systems Architecture online submission system at https://www.evise.com/profile/#/JSA/login. Authors should select “SI:RTESDA 2017”, from the “Choose Article Type” pull-down menu during the submission process.

All submitted papers will be peer reviewed according to the usual standards of this journal, and will be evaluated on the basis of originality, quality and relevance to this Special Issue and the journal, and on the basis of clarity and correct use of English. The submitted papers should be formatted according to the journal style. For more detailed information concerning the requirements for submission, please refer to the journal homepage at:
