26th IEEE European Test Symposium
May 24-28, 2021
Virtual Interactive Event



The ETS 2021 Ph.D. Forum aims at the exchange of ideas and experiences of young Ph.D. students, whose research interests are mainly related to the areas of electronic-based circuit and system testing, reliability, security and validation.

In a special poster session, the fresh Ph.D. students will have the opportunity to discuss their ongoing research work with very well-known specialists in the field both from academia and industry. This offers a good opportunity to the Ph.D. students to receive valuable feedback while gaining exposure in the job market.            

Furthermore, this forum also provides a great chance to industry experts to meet junior researchers, giving an avenue for incorporating the latest research developments into their companies.

In 2021, the IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS) will be organized virtually on-line. The symposium is organized by KU Leuven and imec, that co-sponsor the event jointly with the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).



Submissions for the ETS'21 Ph.D. Forum should be made electronically as a single PDF file. Detailed submission information and guidelines are posted on the ETS’21 web page. 

The forum will be organized as a special poster session in an attractive time slot. Interested Ph.D. students are invited to submit an extended abstracts of 2 pages.

There will be no IEEE publications, but the abstracts will be made available to all ETS attendees in electronic format. Thus, a later, more complete publication of the work in another conference or journal is still possible.
