Submission of Papers

Accepted and presented papers to the FULL track will be submitted to IEEE for inclusion in IEEE XploreⓇ online publication database. (Note: Papers presented at the SHORT track will not be submitted to IEEE Xplore.) Prospective authors in the embedded systems industry and the emerging field of the IoT are encouraged to submit full papers or extended abstract for presentation. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere will be considered. Papers presented at the Symposium should be full papers or extended abstract, in English of maximum 9 pages including figures and pictures, using the supplied template. (Please select A4 paper size.) The minimum length is 2 pages for an extended abstract from busy practitioners. See “Topics of Interest” at the end of this page, for relevant topics that are of interest to the Symposium per se, and the visitors to the accompanying exhibition.
To make it easy for the authors to check the appropriateness, the excerpts of session programs for the past five TRON Symposiums are uploaded. (Click here to download.) TPC will contact you for the appropriateness of the topics explained in the abstract.
2019 TRON Symposium (TRONSHOW) uses EDAS for reviewing papers.
Below, the procedure for registering your paper and final paper submission is explained.

Step 0:
If you are not registered in EDAS, please do so.

Step 1:
Please register your paper (title, author, etc.) to 2019 TRON Symposium (TRONSHOW) at EDAS.

Step 2:
Please input the abstract as plain text into the web submission form in step 1 during registering your paper.
Please finish the above step BEFORE the final submission of the final draft.
The authors are requested to upload the draft of final paper in the manner described above. If you have never used EDAS for submission before, please try uploading one week in advance so that any difficulties encountered will be resolved by the deadline. You can replace the submission until the deadline.
The authors of accepted papers shall upload the final paper to IEEE PDF eXpress PLUS site. The procedure to do so will be notified to the authors.
We look forward to your submissions.
If you have a question or noticed inappropriate/unhelpful messages when you interact with EDAS for submission of paper/abstract to 2019 TRON Symposium (EXHIBITION), please let us know.
