About TTTC

The Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC) is a volunteer professional organization sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society. TTTC’s goals are to contribute to the professional development and advancement of its members, to help them solve engineering problems in electronic test, and to help advance the state-of-the art in test technology. In particular, TTTC aims at facilitating the knowledge flow in an integrated manner, to ensure overall quality in terms of technical excellence, fairness, openness, and equal opportunities. As the objectives of GTCQ – building, educating, and strengthening the global test community – fully align with those of TTTC, TTTC has decided to become a sponsor of GTCQ.

GTCQ - the Perfect Online Social Event

For ITC, 2021 is already the second consecutive year in which the conference, forced by the global COVID-19 pandemic, is organized as an online-only event. While online conferences offer a lot of benefits over their traditional in-person counterparts, audience surveys consistently show that what they are missing is the social interaction within the conference community.

That is why GTCQ has been invented. The Global Test Community Quiz is an online social event that brings entertainment and fun interaction with peers, suppliers, customers, university contacts, etc. around topics that bind us together as test community: science, technology, business, and personal aspects.

First Edition: GTCQ @ETS-2021

The first GTCQ edition was held on May 27, 2021 in conjunction with the IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS) and was by many considered a great success. Almost 200 people in 23 different countries in three continents had an entertaining social event late in the night (Japan), in the end of the afternoon (Europe), or before going to work early in the morning (California). GTCQ @ETS-2021 featured two independent but timing-wise interwoven quiz competitions: (1) between individuals and (2) between three teams of eight persons, each representing a continent (Team Asia, Team Europe, Team Americas).

Second Edition: GTCQ @ITC-2021

GTCQ @ITC-2021 is organized on Tuesday October 12, 2021, 3:00 - 4:30pm PDT as online social event in conjunction with the 52nd IEEE International Test Conference (ITC) 2021. Participation to GTCQ @ITC-2021 is free and open not only to all registered attendees of ITC-2021, but to all members of the global test community.

On Tuesday October 12, ITC's technical program finishes at 03:00pm PDT (= California local time). GTCQ @ITC-2021 starts immediately thereafter: 3:00-4:30pm PDT. Here are some local times for this global quiz
