TSN/A Conference

Call for Papers - Deadline for submission 30 April 2021

Due to the ongoing uncertainties regarding face-to-face events, we have decided to hold the TSNA Conference as a highly interactive online conference again this year.

We are pleased to issue a call for papers for the sixth annual technical conference focused on Time-Sensitive Networks and Applications to be held on 29 - 30 September 2021. This virtual event is designed to provide attendees with an insight to current and emerging use cases, standards, experiments, best practices, 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, Industrial Internet of Things, Real-Time Audio & Video, Aerospace, and Intelligent Transportation Systems.

Please submit an abstract via our online tool by 30 April 2021 after reviewing the Spaeker Guidelines and Milestones below. The language of the conference is English.

Possible Topics
Note: In addition to the base technologies, submissions are encouraged that describe use cases and/or deployments.

  • TSN experiments and best practices
  • Emerging standards for wireline and wireless Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)
  • TSN – advances in the silicon-market
  • Influence of TSN on transforming Industrial Automation
  • Use of TSN in Industrial Automation
  • Heterogeneous TSN Networks
  • Migration to TSN networks
  • Use of 5G URLLC in industrial applications/interworking with TSN
  • TSN and higher layer application Protocols (OPC UA/etc.)
  • Edge/Fog-Computing in combination with TSN, OPC UA, and 5G
  • TSN for automotive in-vehicle networks with functional safety
  • Requirements for automated driving / autonomous vehicles
  • TSN for aerospace; use, requirements, and expectations
  • Current Deployments of Real-Time AVB or TSN in production installation
  • Emerging real-time audio/video over Ethernet with AVB/TSN
  • Security and TSN in distributed real-time systems
  • Safety-Critical distributed systems over TSN
  • TSN support in the Operating System (e.g., Linux+PreemptRT, RTOS)
  • Open Source software stacks for TSN protocols
  • Timing guarantees within computing systems
  • Interworking of IEEE 1588 / PTP Profiles in Time-Sensitive Applications
  • Combination of TSN with DetNet
  • Network hierarchy provided by TSN and DetNet

Please submit your abstract via our online tool!

Prior to submitting your abstract, please be sure to review the Speaker Guidelines and Milestones.We look forward to your submission!

Call for Papers


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. All selected speakers must abide by the milestones listed in order to participate.

Speaker Milestones

  • 30 April – Deadline Call for Papers
  • June 2021 – Abstracts selected, and speakers notified
  • 1 September 2021 – Final presentation due 

Data needed for submission

  • Abstract (not-to-exceed 100 words)
  • 50-word bio from each speaker
  • Target audience



In close cooperation with recognized experts and the responsible editorial staff
of our well-known media brands we organize around 50 national and international B2B congresses, seminars and workshops each year for a defined specialist audience.

These cover topics such as embedded systems, automotive Ethernet, battery technology,
data centers, safety & security, electronic displays, Blockchain, IoT, wiring harness, AI, Smart Building, Digital Workplace, TSN, wireless technologies, cabling and much more.
