The paper submission deadline is March 3, 2021 (anywhere on Earth). 

Paper Preparation

To be considered for review, submissions to ECRTS’21 must fully comply with

  1. the double-blind submission policy,
  2. the flexible page limit, and
  3. the below formatting instructions. 

In case of questions or doubts about these policies, please contact the program committee (PC) chair prior to the submission deadline. 

It is furthermore strongly recommended that authors use gender-neutral language and generally avoid charged terminology.

    • Submissions must not modify the default LIPIcs style in any way, either directly or via LaTeX packages.
    • In particular, do not change any fonts, font sizes, the line spacing, margins, etc.
