IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS)


The IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS) is Europe’s premier forum dedicated to presenting and discussing scientific results, emerging ideas, applications, hot topics and new trends in the area of electronic-based circuits and system testing. In 2016, ETS will take place in Movenpick hotel, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It is organized by the Delft University of Technology, which co-sponsors the event jointly with the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA). ETS also features a special track on Emerging Test Strategies (ETS2), where new problems and ideas can be discussed in an informal atmosphere. ETS is the major event of the European Test Week that includes TSS (Test Spring School), and fringe workshops.

Amsterdam is the capital city and most populous city of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Amsterdam's name derives from Amstelredamme, indicative of the city's origin as a dam of the river Amstel. Amsterdam is a unique city in the world in many aspects:

  • Amsterdam has hundreds of attractions, including its historic canals, many famous museums (Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, etc), its red-light district, and its many cannabis coffee shops draw more than 5 million international visitors annually!!
  • Amsterdam was ranked the second best city in which to live by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in 2012, and 12th globally on quality of living for environment and infrastructure by Merce.
  • etc.
