The IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS) is Europe’s premier forum dedicated to presenting and discussing scientific results, emerging ideas, hot topics, and new trends, industrial case-studies and applications, in the area of electronic-based circuits and system testing, reliability, safety, security and validation. The 2021 edition of ETS will be a virtual one. The organizing team will strive to keep the spirit of ETS alive, by organizing an event with live sessions and many opportunities for networking and peer interaction. ETS’21 is organized jointly by KU Leuven and imec, which co-sponsor the event together with the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).
The program includes keynotes, scientific paper presentations, panels, tutorials, workshops and highlights/demos from industry.
Besides regular technical papers, ETS’21 provides the opportunity of submitting scientific contributions for Hot-Topic papers presenting early innovative ideas with in-progress results, emerging and future test/reliability/safety problems, or identifying open problems that merit innovative future research. Papers submitted under this category should be of maximum 4 pages in the IEEE 2-column format.
You are invited to participate and submit your contributions to ETS’21. The areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the following topics:
|Analog, Mixed-Signal and RF Test||High-Speed I/0 Test|
|Approximate Circuit Testing||Low-Power Test|
|ATE Hardware and Software||Machine Learning and AI for Test|
