Issues related to on-line testing are increasingly important in modern electronic systems. In particular, the huge complexity of electronic systems has led to growth in reliability needs in several application domains as well as pressure for low cost products. There is a corresponding increasing demand for cost-effective on-line testing techniques. These needs have increased dramatically with the introduction of very deep submicron and nanometer technologies which adversely impact noise margins, process, voltage and temperature variations, aging and wearout and make integrating on-line testing and fault tolerance mandatory in many modern ICs. The International On-Line Testing Symposium (IOLTS) is an established forum for presenting novel ideas and experimental data on these areas. The symposium also emphasizes on-line testing in the continuous operation of large applications such as wired, cellular and satellite telecommunication, as well as in secure chips. The Symposium is sponsored by the IEEE Council on Electronics Design Automation (CEDA) and the 2013 edition is organized by the IEEE Computer Society Test Technology Technical Council, the University of Athens, and the TIMA Laboratory.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following ones:

Reliability issues in nanometer technologies On-line testing of analog and mixed signal circuits
Radiation effects On-line testing in automotive, railway, avionics, industry
Design for reliability On-line testing in the continuous operation of large systems
Design for variability Field diagnosis, maintainability and reconfiguration
