Fringe Workshops

IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS, is the leading European conference on test methods for circuit and systems. The 21st edition of ETS, to be held in the end of May 2016 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, is seeking proposals for co-located workshops. The workshops may cover a specific emerging topic related to the ETS core scientific areas listed in the ETS Call for Papers.  They may also focus on test aspects of a particular technology, industry, or class of products. 

The workshops will start on Thursday May 26, after the ETS closing session (around 16:00) and will end on Friday, May 27. The workshops currently accepted can be found here.


Potential organizers are invited to submit a brief (one-page) proposal providing the following information:

  • What will be the title and the topic of the proposed workshop, and what is its relevance to ETS participants?
  • How will the technical program be composed (open call for submissions, invited talks, special sessions)?
  • Were there any previous editions? Were they co-located with larger conferences? How many attendants and paper submissions were observed in previous editions?
  • What attendance can be realistically expected? Numbers can be supported by information such as attendance of earlier editions of this or similar workshops, populous special sessions in related larger conferences, large-scale projects in the area of the workshop.
  • Who are the organizers (at least General and Program Chair)? Specify previous experience in organizing conferences or workshops, in particular TTTC-sponsored events.


Submission deadline: January 30, 2016
Notification of acceptance: February 12, 2016
