TCRTS is committed to bringing industry and academia in the broad area of real-time systems closer together. We aim to bring relevant industry challenges to academia and help research results land in industry. 

For this purpose, we are building a base of TCRTS Industry Contacts with community members working in the industry in real-time systems-related topics that are available/interested in collaborating in our industry-oriented initiatives. These may include occasional surveys (not more than 1 or 2 a year), invitations to participate in program committees of conferences and workshops, and panels in such events. We count on your collaboration to help narrow the academia-industry gap and build a stronger research community.
