Workshop on Intelligent Methods for Test and Reliability IMTR 22

26-27 May 2022, Barcelona, co-located with IEEE European Test Symposium

Workshop on Intelligent Methods for Test and Reliability IMTR 22

Workshop Scope

Data collected during different test-related design, manufacturing, and operation steps bear huge potential that is heavily under-utilized today. As a consequence, test methods are undergoing a transformation triggered by the advent of next-generation artificial intelligence and data science technology.  This workshop aims at bringing the core test community together with interdisciplinary researchers working on various facets of intelligent methods within the test flow.  This workshop will leverage the interdisciplinary potentials to consider intelligent methods for test-related problems from the points of view of both: the ETS community and researchers working in different scientific areas, such as machine learning, data science, security, software engineering, and visualization.

Call for Papers

The workshop invites submissions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Intelligent methods, including machine learning, data and visual analytics, for test and reliability problems (design for testability, post-silicon validation, test application, yield optimization, fault-tolerant operation)
  • Secure and privacy-preserving semiconductor testing
  • Intelligent techniques for system-level test
  • Data-driven software engineering for handling test-related dataIntelligent solutions for ultra-high speed, ultra-high data rate test application

A submission can describe a novel scientific result, provide a position statement about a new and relevant problem, or report a case study on practical experiences with a technique from the list above.  The submissions should not be formally published in the past.  The workshop will have no formal proceedings, so authors will be free to resubmit their work to conferences or journals.  Accepted papers can, at the discretion and with an approval of their authors, be published on the workshop’s website.
