3D-TEST Workshop is back

After a four-year break, the 3D-TEST Workshop is back! Well aware of which technical topics are “hot” today, we have expanded the scope of the workshop to include testing of chiplet-based ICs, as this has a very natural fit with the existing focus. This addition caused the workshop acronym to grow from 3D-TEST to 3DC-TEST: the 7th IEEE International Workshop on Testing Three-Dimensional, Chiplet-Based, and Stacked ICs.

The workshop will take place as a virtual event, in conjunction with and starting immediately after ITC, on Thursday November 5 and finish on Friday November 6, 2020 – just like the previous editions. The program has been defined, registration is open, and everyone who is interested in these topics is welcome to join; for more information see the workshop’s website; https://lnkd.in/dhEuEw4. At this website, you can also find the archives of the previous workshop editions.

To whet your appetite, this video gives an impression of the previous six editions of this successful workshop. Enjoy!

ITC 2020 Taking Place Virtually Q&A

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of ITC into an all-digital conference experience – ITC will now be an online event. Therefore, ITC will no longer take place in Washington, DC and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – November 3-5, 2020. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. For questions, contact itc-web@ieee.org.

There are lots of photos within the mobile app that you can download.  You can also download any of the discussions.  The mobile app will stay active for six months after the conference.

The winner of the photo contest was Mr. Makoto Eiki with the most likes on the mobile app for this nice sunset photo.

There are also a few hundred photos from a professional photographer which you can access with this link on dropbox – https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3eicrfi13zk1cow/AAD9N8ok25blbPfJY6dIvYLva?dl=0.
