Submission instructions

Scope and Deadline

To be in scope, papers must present novel work and address some form of timing requirement, broadly construed, as elaborated in the call for papers. The conference’s language is English.

The paper submission deadline is March 1, 2023 (anywhere on Earth) and the submission website can be found at

Paper Preparation

To be considered for review, submissions to ECRTS’23 must fully comply with

  1. the double-blind submission policy,
  2. the flexible page limit,
  3. the below formatting instructions, and
  4. in case of resubmission make a noticable effort to address reviewer comments

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.

Formatting Instructions
  1. Use the LIPIcs LaTeX style.
    • 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, line spacing, margins, etc.
  2. Carefully consult and follow the LIPIcs style guide.
    • In particular, do not use custom paragraph labels or nonstandard sectioning commands. 
  3. Use the anonymous option of the LIPIcs LaTeX document class in compliance with the double-blind submission policy.
    Example: \documentclass[anonymous]{lipics-v2021}
Supplemental Materials

Any supplemental materials referenced in a submitted paper (and that reviewers hence should have access to), such as extended online tech reports, source code, demo videos, etc., must be submitted in suitably blinded form along with the paper (see the double-blind policy for details). Please use the submission site’s upload facilities for uploading this material. For larger files that exceed the submission site’s upload limits (e.g., videos), please contact the PC chair directly prior to the submission deadline. 

Presentation Requirement

To appear in the proceedings, each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors at the conference. By submitting to ECRTS’23, authors implicitly agree that for each accepted paper at least one author will register for the conference.


Most reviewers make an effort in suggesting necessary improvements to bring papers to acceptable format. ECRTS would like to acknowledge this effort and ask authors submitting to ECRTS to as well honor the time reviewers have spent. We therefore require authors to make a sincere effort to address reviewers’ concerns prior to resubmitting their work. Resubmission of a paper rejected from a prior conference or journal submission that is essentially unchanged is not acceptable and might lead to rejection without review. Authors, which believe submitting a paper unchanged is appropriate, must contact the Program Chair prior to the submission deadline.

Mutual Respect

Reviewers and TPC members receive no financial compensation for their community service at ECRTS. The technical committee makes an effort to raise the quality of reviewers, which also includes a polite tone and supportive attitude in any communication with the authors. We would like authors to likewise exercise a polite tone in their replies to the reviewers or TPC members. The technical committee reserves the right to reject papers on the ground of authors being impolite to TPC members and reviewer.
