Workshop on Low Power Design Impact on Test and Reliability (LPonTR)
The 5th IEEE International Workshop on Impact of Low Power Design on Test and Reliability (LPonTR) aims to bring together design, reliability and test engineers and researchers to discuss the impact of advanced low-power low-voltage design methodologies of nanometer silicon systems on test and reliability. Power and thermal issues, leakage, process variations, susceptibility to envi- ronmental and operation-induced interference drive the development of low-power, process-tolerant design techniques and generate a new set of test and reliability challenges, questing for an innovative set of methodologies and tools.

  • Workshop on Processor Verification, Test and Debug (IWPVTD)
    The key objective of this workshop, planned to be held in conjunction with the European Test Symposium, is to provide an informal forum for vigorous creative discussion and debate of Processor Verification, Test and Debug. The aim is to encourage the presentation and discussion of innovative ideas that may not yet have been fully developed for presentation at reviewed conferences to address these challenges. Additionally, the workshop invites embedded talks and tutorials on cutting edge topics related to processor test, verification, debug and reliability.
