Call for Papers & Workshops
TSN/A Conference l October 7 - 8, 2020 
Deadline Call for Papers: May 24, 2020

Conference on Time Sensitive Networks / Technology and Applications (TSN/A)
For Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Industrial Internet of Things, Real-Time Audio & Video, and Intelligent Transportation Systems

The TSN/A Conference will take place on 7-8 October! Depending on the Covid-19 situation, either as planned in a real-life version or as a virtual conference.

The TSN/A Conference is jointly organized by Avnu Alliance in Cooperation with the German trade publications Computer&AUTOMATION and Elektronik automotive.

We are pleased to issue a call for papers for the fifth annual technical conference focused on Time-Sensitive Networks and Applications to be held at the Marriott Hotel Frankfurt am Main in Germany on 7- 8 October 2020. This event is designed to provide attendees with an overview of current and emerging use cases, standards, and technologies related to real-time and distributed applications and networks where systems interact with the physical world in a way that is time and/or mission critical. Application areas include but not limited to Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Industrial Internet of Things, Real-Time Audio & Video, Aerospace, and Intelligent Transportation Systems.

Please submit an abstract by 24 May 2020 after reviewing the Speaker Guidelines and Milestones below.

Speaker Guidelines

All speakers should keep in mind that they will be presenting to experts across a broad spectrum of industries and therefore the presentations must provide a sufficiently succinct background of the topic before presenting their main idea. Product-focused "sales pitches" will not be allowed.

By submitting an abstract, you agree that you are committed to presenting at the technical conference if your abstract is selected by the committee.

Please ensure that at least one of the authors of a contribution is available to travel to the conference if it is held face-to-face.. Speakers are responsible for their travel arrangements and expenses. All selected speakers must abide by the milestones listed in order to participate.

The language of the conference is English.
