We are pleased to announce 2020 TRON Symposium, the 36th TRON SYMPOSIUM to be held on 9th - 11th of December 2020, in Tokyo, Japan. The Symposium, with technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Consumer Technology Society (formerly IEEE Consumer Electronics Society), will feature presentation sessions of papers, poster sessions, panel discussions, tutorial sessions and an accompanying exhibition, TRONSHOW (9th - 11th December.)
Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in Japan and elsewhere, the organizers of the Symposium and TPC had to make difficult last-minute decisions. Thus the late announcement. The deadline is final. The PAPER SESSION WILL BE HELD REMOTELY although the accompanying exhibition WILL be held physically. We plan to hold the session on the second day (Dec. 10). The presenter will be required to be available during the presentation to answer questions, etc. The presentation time will be announced after the accepted papers will be finalized. (It is likely to be late afternoon in Tokyo (UCT +09) on 10th December to accommodate authors in different time zones.) Used conference software, etc. will be announced soon. Interested viewers are welcome to attend to the limit of the conference software.
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.
