Call for Papers & Workshops
TSN/A Conference l September 26 - 27, 2018 
Deadline Call for Papers: May 8, 2018

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 first common annual technical conference focused on Time Sensitive Networks and Applications for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Industrial Internet of Things, Real-Time Audio & Video, and Intelligent Transportation Systems – to be held at the Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport in Germany on September 26 - 27, 2018. This event is designed to provide attendees with an overview of current and emerging standards and technologies related to real-time and distributed applications and networks where systems interact with the physical world in a way that is tightly coupled in time.

Presentation opportunities will be provided in both 30-minute and 60-minute formats. Please submit an abstract online by May 8, 2018. Prior to submitting your abstract, please be sure to review 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 you are available to travel (if necessary). Speakers are responsible for their travel arrangements and expenses. All selected speakers must abide by the milestones listed in order to participate.

The conference language will be English.
