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 and the European Group of the Test Technology Technical Committee (ETTTC).
The topics include (but are not limited to) the following ones:

  • 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 be limited. Those interested in presenting recent results at the workshop submit four copies of an extended abstract, one to three pages long, or full length paper to the Program Co-Chair D. Nikolos.
Please observe the following deadlines:

 - submission deadline: March 15, 1998

  About the location: Capri is a small, nice island in the famous gulf of Naples, one of the most attractive towns in Southern Italy. Greeks and Romans first populated the island, which is well known as a spectacular natural setting, for the sunny climate, and for the wealth of historic sites. Following the example of the Roman emperor Tiberius, who built there his mansion, many VIPs moved to Capri to enjoy its beauty, and made it famous in the world. The hotel "La Residenza" is located in a nice position close to the main village of Capri, not far from the Faraglioni rocks.
Daily flights connect the Naples International Airport with the mostimportant European hubs; ferries and hydrofoils link Capri with the Naples harbour in about 40 minutes.
