We are pleased to announce 2017 TRON Symposium, the 33rd TRON SYMPOSIUM to be held on 13th - 14th of December 2017, in Tokyo, Japan. The Symposium, with technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, will feature presentation sessions of papers, poster sessions, panel discussions, tutorial sessions and an accompanying exhibition, TRONSHOW (13th-15th December.)

By popular demands, the deadline has been further extended.
Please check the "Important Dates" in the left.

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. 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 save the time for the authors and the reviewers in case the topic of the submission may not be appropriate for 2017 TRON Symposium, the prospective authors are encouraged to submit an abstract of the final submission (maximum approximately 300 words) to EDAS by July 27 for screening. We have decided to make this step optional since there were voices from people in the Northern Hemisphere that contacting research partners is awkward during this time of the year. To make it easy for the authors to check the appropriateness, the excerpts of session programs for the past four TRON Symposiums are uploaded. TPC will contact you for the appropriateness of the topics explained in the abstract.
2017 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 2017 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.
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 2017 TRON Symposium (EXHIBITION), please let us know.
