The objective of the Electronic Systems Test Workshop (ESTW) is to bring together researchers in all of the fields related to the test of entire systems. The heterogeneous nature of electronic system design calls for coordination between different research communities in order to address the system test problem. Currently research in each related field is performed by largely distinct research communities including digital IC test, mixed-signal test, embedded systems test, hardware/software co-simulation, and software test. As a result, there has been little effort towards the development of a coherent science of system test. This workshop is intended to be a forum for the broad collaboration required to establish a research foundation for the field of system test.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Diagnosis : Resolution vs. Repair Cost
  • System-level Fault Tolerance
  • Self-Repairing Systems
  • Embedded System Testing
  • System-Level Built-In Self-Test
  • Hardware/Software Co-simulation
  • Testing of Concurrent/Globally Asynchronous Systems
  • System Fault Characterization
  • System-Level Functional Test
  • Integration Testing
  • On-line System Test
  • Testing of Real-Time Systems
ESTW submissions must be made electronically in PDF format through the ESTW web site. Reference the ESTW web page for instructions on electronic submissions.

Authors should submit one PDF file which should contain the complete paper including the title and abstract. This file should not be more than 4 pages.

The proceedings of this workshop will not be published. Proceedings will be distributed to workshop attendees.
