The Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems (TCRTS) is a technical committee of the IEEE Computer Society (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) that deals with all aspects related to embedded systems, and organizes conferences and promotes the exchange of research results on the topic.

The Outstanding Technical Contributions and Leadership Award is an annual award (introduced in 1999) to the researcher who has most distinguished himself over the years in the field of real-time systems due to the relevance of the results obtained and the research coordination skills.
