Prospective authors in the embedded systems industry and the emerging field of the IoT are encouraged to submit FULL papers or SHORT papers for presentation. Each of full paper or short paper will be peer reviewed. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
Accepted and presented FULL papers, will be submitted to IEEE for inclusion in IEEE Xplore® online publication database. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere will be considered.
FULL papers should be in English, of maximum 8 pages including figures and pictures, using the supplied template.
The minimum length is 2 pages and maximum 4 pages for an short papers from busy practitioners. See “Topics of Interest” at the end of this call for relevant topics that are of interest to the Symposium per se, and the visitors to the accompanying exhibition. Accepted and presented SHORT papers, will be submitted to IEEE for inclusion in IEEE Xplore® online publication database.
Those wishing to submit papers should first register an abstract (up to approximately 300 words) that explains the main content of the final submission by registering your paper to EDAS. Please finish this step before the paper submission deadline.
Please specify if you would like to submit a FULL paper or a SHORT paper: there is a check box in the submission form at the URL shown below.
The following is the process of registering your paper and abstract.
The submitted papers is peer reviewed and notice of acceptance for presentation will be given by the date of notification of acceptance.For papers that are accepted for presentation, the final version is to be submitted by the date of final paper submission. We plan to use IEEE PDF eXpress for the final presentation submission. The details of using IEEE PDF eXpress to validate the format of the final version for conforming IEEE format will be mailed to the authors whose paper has been accepted.
Authors must present their papers during the presentation time of 2023 TRON Symposium. Since the conference is a hybrid, online presentations are also allowed.
Broadly speaking there are two (2) categories. One is embedded systems and the other is the IoT (or ubiquitous computing) application and services. The boundary of these categories has become blurred thanks to the real-world services applications of the IoT that use RFID tags, small sensor nodes to build ubiquitous sensor network, and the like. Topics of the symposium include the following, but not limited to:
TRON Project was established in 1984. It aims to build the open architecture of advanced embedded systems. It has developed very popular TRON real-time OS (RTOS) family: ITRON specification, and T-Kernel, for example. TRON Project’s original goal included the vision of “Computer Everywhere” which is basically the same as ubiquitous computing or the IoT (the Internet of Things). Today, the embedded systems technology is used widely to support the IoT. The project has influenced ICT industry very much. For example, TRON RTOS family has more than 60% of embedded systems market share in Japan. The project has led the IoT research by introducing ucode, an identifier system as part of its IoT application framework called uID architecture. (See https://www.tron.org/ for the detailed background on TRON Project.)
To disseminate the result of the project and foster communication of interested parties, TRON Project has held the annual TRON Symposium for the last 39 years. TRON Symposium is the place to discuss the applications and services of the IoT in the future such as the home electronic appliances, homes, buildings and cities of the future, and to discuss the nuts and bolts of embedded systems such as RTOS kernel, the implementation issues such as the interaction of the IoT paradigm and Cloud. We welcome discussions of the impact of technology on society.
We will hold the annual exhibition of products, services, and publication related to TRON Project in parallel to the TRON Symposium.
