Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion chair introduction

For the first time, ITC has added a DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Chair to the Steering Committee.  I have the privilege of holding that position this year. The ultimate goal is to increase the attendance of any underrepresented group at ITC. It is well known that diversity, equity and inclusion increase the success of any business and we realize that this is also true for any area or in this case conference. Making all attendees feel welcome is very important to ITC.

Feel free to contact me at it itc-web@ieee.org with any input you, as part of an underrepresented group or as an ally, may have on what would make you excited to attend ITC.


Hope to see you there!


Best regards,

Teresa McLaurin

DEI Chair – ITC 2023

ITC 2022 Retrospective

The first in-person ITC since 2019 was a rousing success! ITC week took place at Disneyland, in Anaheim, California on the 25-30 September and included 12 tutorials, two workshops and a very strong ITC program. The ITC program comprised three keynotes that spanned the future, present and past of DFT and test engineering as well as a visionary talk about ultra low-power AI accelerators. In addition, there were four panels and many technical sessions addressing topics such as AI, automotive, memory and hardware security just to name a few.

However, what made this ITC so special was meeting with and exchanging ideas with colleagues we hadn’t seen in years and making new contacts. The conference started Monday evening with a panel and post-panel reception. On Tuesday, we started with the plenary and first keynote and ended the day with the ITC Grand Reception which took place on Adventure Lawn, a beautiful setting. There was plenty of food and drink, a live band, but most of all a multitude of discussions ongoing the entire night. It was so great to see and talk to everyone in person!

You can still register for ITC 2022 and get access to the presentation videos which are available until 31 December 2022! Registration also includes a copy of the conference proceedings.

Next year we will again be at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. Come join us!

SLM Workshop

IEEE International Workshop on Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) 2022

– hybrid format (inria.fr) SEPTEMBER 29-30, 2022


With increasing system complexity, security, stringent runtime requirements for functional safety, and cost constraints of a mass market, the reliable and secure operation of electronics in safety- critical, enterprise servers and cloud computing domains is still a major challenge. While traditionally design time and test time solutions were supposed to guarantee the in-field dependability and security of electronic systems, due to complex interaction of runtime effects from running workload and environment, there is a great need for a holistic approach for silicon lifecycle management, spanning from design time to in-field monitoring and adaptation. Therefore the solutions for lifecycle management should include various sensors and monitors embedded in different levels of the design stack, access mechanisms and standards for such on-chip and in- system sensor network, as well as data analytics on the edge and in the cloud. The SLM Workshop offers a forum to present and discuss these challenges and emerging solutions among researchers and practitioners alike.
SLM will take place in conjunction with the IEEE International Test Conference (ITC 22); is sponsored by IEEE Philadelphia Chapter; and conceived by the IEEE Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC).
