Call for Participation

The increased complexity of electronic systems has seen increasing reliability needs in various application domains as well as pressure for low cost products. There is a corresponding increased demand for cost effective on-line test techniques. This workshop provides an informal forum to discuss all aspects of on-line testing. The Workshop is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Test Technology Technical Committee, co-organized by TTTC On-Line Testing Technical Activity Committee. the European Group of the Test Technology Technical Committee (ETTTC) and NCSR Demokritos. The topics include (but are not limited to) the following areas:

  • Concurrent checking
  • Periodic testing in the field
  • Field diagnosis
  • Self-checking digital, analog and mixed-signal circuits
  • Coding theory
  • On-line and off-line BIST
  • Synthesis of on-line testable circuits
  • Radiation hardened/tolerant processes and design techniques
  • Sensors/detectors for on-line monitoring of current, temperature and other reliability relevant parameters
  • Fault-tolerant and fail-safe systems
  • On-line testing in automotive, railway, avionics, industrial control and space applications
  • To encourage and facilitate informal discussion mandates that participation is limited. Those interested in presenting recent results at the workshop submit three copies of an extended abstract, one to three pages long, or full length paper to the Co-Program Chair D. Nikolos. Please observe the following deadlines:

  • submission deadline: March 3rd, 1997
  • notification of acceptance: April 15th, 1997

    About the location: Sofitel Capsis Beach Resort, is located at the Aghia Pelaghia headland, 12 miles from International Heraklion Airport, in Crete, the largest island of Greece. This luxury resort includes private beaches, 5 restaurants, 5 bars, 3 swimming pools, sauna, jacuzzi, various sports, disco, zoo and greenhouse. Nearby attractions include the famous Knossos Palace and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion.

    Crete has a 4.000 years old history, with the Minoan civilization its crowning achievement. The palaces of Knossos and Phaestos were the royal residences as well as the administrative and religious centres of the region. The frescos, ceramics and golden pieces found during excavations bring us to the soul of that world, peace-loving, light-hearted but also powerful. Crete has a mild, sub-tropical climate, pleasant breezes and a constantly changing scenery among miles of beaches, mountain chains, plateaus, valleys and deep gorges.

    Well connected by air and sea to Athens and by air to major capitals of Europe, Crete makes an ideal venue for this conference.
