Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce 2014 TRON Symposium, the 30th TRON Project Symposium to be held on 10th - 11th of December 2014, 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 (10th-12th December.) Exhibition runs a day longer

Topics of the papers:

Broadly speaking, there are two categories. One is embedded systems and the other is the IoT (or Ubiquitous Computing) application and services. The boundary of these categories have 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.
The full list of topics is found in later section and the full version of this CfP available at the conference website.

Important Dates:
July 21, 2014: Panel Discussion Proposal deadline
July 21: Abstract deadline
August 22: Full paper submission deadline
August 22: Poster session proposal deadline
October 1: Notification of Acceptance
October 31: Final version deadline (for accepted papers)
December 10-11: Presentation

Submission of Papers

Accepted and presented full papers will be submitted to IEEE for inclusion in IEEE XploreⓇ online publication database. 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 call for relevant topics that are of interest to the Symposium per se, and the visitors to the accompanying exhibition.


Those wishing to submit papers or extended abstract should first send an abstract (up to approximately 300 words) that explains the content of the final submission to the Technical Program Committee. Send abstract by 21st July along with the title (provisional), authors' full names, affiliations, contact addresses (postal and e-mail),
and telephone numbers.

Full Paper / Extended Abstract

The authors then should submit the full paper by 22nd August to the program committee in Portable Document Format (PDF). Notice of acceptance for presentation will be sent by 1st October. For papers that are accepted for presentation, the final version is to be submitted by 31st October. (See the author’s guideline posted at the Symposium website). An author must be at the symposium for the presentation of the paper during 2014 TRON Symposium (TRONSHOW).

About TRON Project and TRON Symposium:

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). (See 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 29 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 interaction of the IoT paradigm and
Cloud. We welcome discussions of the impact of technology on society.
