Publications
ETS'08 will produce multiple publications.
  • Formal Proceedings - Published by IEEE Computer Society, with ISBN number, and to be indexed in IEEE Xplore and other bibliographical search engines. The Formal Proceedings will be delivered on-site at ETS'08 and distributed to all attendees of the symposium. 
  • JETTA - The best contributions will be selected for submission to regular issues of the "Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications" (JETTA), published by Springer.
  • Web-based Electronic Informal Digest of Papers – It will be created and maintained by the ETS'08 organizers. The Electronic Informal Digest of Papers will be accessible through the ETS'08 web site at the time of the symposium (or even some days before). It will contain the pdf files of papers accepted as Poster, as well as those of workshop-type papers, vendor session papers and other type of accepted submissions if made available by the authors. After the symposium it will also contain the slides of the corresponding presentations, if made available by the presenter.
Submission Categories and Review Criteria
ETS'08 distinguishes a number of submissions categories. Different submission categories have different review (and hence, acceptance) criteria. Submissions to a particular category will be judged on the criteria of that category and compete for acceptance against the other proposals in that category. In principle, it is not allowed to send one submission to multiple categories. Also, it is not possible to submit to one category, but get accepted in another category. Hence, if you are planning to submit to ETS'08, please carefully select your submission category.
We distinguish the following paper submission categories:
  • Scientific Papers - Scientific papers should present novel and complete research work, supported by experimental results. Only full papers of a maximum of six pages should be submitted. If accepted for oral presentation in front of a full audience, the paper will be published in the ETS'08 Formal Proceedings. If accepted for poster presentation, the paper will be published in the ETS'08 Electronic Informal Digest of Papers.
  • Workshop-type Papers - These papers include emerging idea papers and case study papers. Emerging idea papers should present novel ideas, but perhaps lack sufficient supporting experimental results. Case study papers should present extensive experimental results of circuits, methods, or tools which by themselves are not necessarily novel. Submissions consisting of Abstracts or Extended Abstracts only are accepted, but preference is given to full papers (of a maximum of six pages). If accepted for oral presentation in front of a full audience or poster presentation, the paper can, at the will of the authors, be included in the ETS'08 Electronic Informal Digest of Papers.
  • Vendor Session Papers - These technical marketing papers focus on new features of test-related products, such as EDA or ATE tools and techniques; true technical content is preferred, but a slight commercial undertone is allowed. Submission is open to all, but corporate sponsors of ETS'08 will get preferential treatment in the selection process. Submissions consisting of Abstracts or Extended Abstracts only are accepted, but preference is given to full papers (of a maximum of length six pages). If accepted for oral presentation in front of a full audience, the paper can, at the will of the authors, be included in the ETS'08 Electronic Informal Digest of Papers.
In addition, ETS'08 considers the following submissions:
  • Special Sessions - Proposals for panel sessions, embedded tutorials, and other special sessions. Proposers of Special Sessions are assumed to be able and willing to serve as organizers of the session, i.e., contact speakers, moderators, etc. Special Session organizers can also be speaker or moderator in their own proposal.
  • Full-Day Tutorials - Proposals on test technology topics. Proposers of Full-Day Tutorials are assumed to be able and willing to serve as organizer of the tutorial, i.e. set up the program, contact speakers, etc. Tutorial organizers can also be speakers in their own proposal.
Submission Process
All submissions should be original and previously unpublished. Only electronic submission of PDF files via the paper submission page of the ETS'08 web site are accepted.
  • Scientific Papers - Only full papers of a maximum of six pages should be submitted.
  • Emerging Idea, Case Study, and Vendor Session Papers - Submissions consisting of Abstracts or Extended Abstracts only are accepted, but preference is given to full papers (of a maximum of six pages).
  • Special Sessions - Submissions of any length are accepted.
  • Full-Day Tutorials - Tutorial proposals should be submitted according to TTEP 2008 submission deadlines (http://computer.org/tab/tttc/teg/ttep).
Submission deadline for Scientific Papers, Emerging Idea and Case Study was extended from December 7, 2007 to December 14, 2007 and is now expired.

Vendor Session Papers submissions will be accepted till January 25, 2008.
 
By means of their submission, authors agree to register for and participate in ETS'08, in case their submission is accepted for oral presentation or poster presentation.


Paper submissions should be formatted as close as possible to the final format: US letter (for the Formal Proceedings) or A4 (for the Informal Digest of Papers) pages, a maximum of six pages, double column, single spaced, Times or equivalent font of minimum 10pt.
Acceptance/Rejection Notification
Multiple members of the ETS'08 Program Committee, all experts in test technology, will review your submission. Your submission will be reviewed according to the description of its submission category. At the TPC meeting early in February 2008, accept and reject decisions will be taken, of which you will be notified by February 17, 2008. You will also receive the review ratings for and comments on your submission.
Final Manuscripts
As specified in the table below, ETS'08 distinguishes four types of accepted submissions.
  • Your Scientific Paper submission has been accepted for oral presentation. In that case, you must prepare a final manuscript of a maximum of 6 pages US letter for inclusion in the Formal Proceedings.
  • Your Emerging Idea, Case Study, or Vendor Session Paper has been accepted for oral presentation. In that case, you are invited to prepare a final manuscript of a maximum of 6 pages A4 for inclusion in the Electronic Informal Digest of Papers.
Your submission has been accepted for poster presentation. In that case, you are invited to prepare a final manuscript of a maximum of 6 pages A4 for inclusion in the Electronic Informal Digest of Papers.

In preparation of all final manuscripts, carefully observe (1) the reviewers' comments and suggestions and (2) the IEEE CS Press camera-ready rules and guidelines while preparing this final manuscript. The deadline for the manuscript is March 7, 2008.
Presentation Preparation
Authors of submissions accepted for oral presentation should prepare a presentation in MS-PowerPoint or PDF. More detailed guidelines will be provided in due time. Authors of submissions accepted for poster presentation should prepare a poster of max. A0 (width × height = 841mm × 1189mm = 33.1” × 46.8”). More detailed guidelines will be provided in due time.
