ERTS 2022 - CFP New dates

The congress targets all the domains where embedded systems are crucial, such as, but not limited to, transportation (aeronautics, automotive, railways, marine, unmanned vehicles,…), space exploration and satellite applications, e-healthcare, industry 4.0, defence, energy, telecoms. The congress welcomes submissions concerning academic and industrial research, practical experiences and use cases, feedbacks on new technologies, and position papers on challenges or major trends. 

This edition encourages contributions bringing innovative cross-fertilising ideas for the development, deployment and operation of safe and secure intelligent systems, including software and hardware disciplines targeting the support of advanced autonomy. This includes topics related to the design, verification, assessment and certification of critical embedded systems and applications based on artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms.

Original and unpublished submissions are solicited, which may be under two forms: Regular and Short papers.

  • Regular papers presenting achieved results. The selection will be based firstly on the review of extended abstract (4 pages) followed by the review of the full paper (10 pages) for final acceptance. Accepted regular papers will be published in the proceedings and presented in an oral session at the congress (registration and presentation by one author are mandatory).
  • Short papers reporting on work in progress. The selection will be based on the review of the full short paper (4 pages). Each accepted short paper will be published in the proceedings and presented both as a poster and in a five-minute oral presentation at the congress (registration and presentation by one author are mandatory).
