23rd IEEE FRUCT Conference: News and Updates



This is the final reminder that if you need certificate of participation in the conference please notify us latest by Nov 12, 17.00CET. Otherwise we will be able to email scan copies of the certificate after the conference.


We proudly announce that Dr. Cecilia Metra, full professor at the University of Bologna will give a keynote talk on Reliability Challenges for High Performance Electronic Systems in the Internet of Things Era.
The continuous miniaturization of microelectronic technology has enabled to keep on increasing electronic systems’ performance and complexity, thus offering new opportunities for implementation and realization that were unthinkable a few years before. Nowadays we are assisting to a massive diffusion of miniaturized electronic components, that can be connected to each other through the Internet, thus creating the Internet of Things (IoT). A huge amount of data is consequently generated, collected, elaborated, and distributed again. Human life is more and more dependent on such data, thus making their correctness and their correct elaboration more and more critical. Failure conditions possibly occurring in the field and attempting at the reliability of such data and elaborations, as well as possible approaches to cope with them will be described.
Prof. Cecilia Metra is the 2018 President-Elect and 2019 President of the IEEE Computer Society (CS). She is an IEEE Fellow, IEEE CS Golden Core Member, and a member of the IEEE Honor Society IEEE-HKN. In 2002, she was visiting faculty consultant for Intel Corporation. She has been a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Computer Society since 2013, and of the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation since 2015. She is the Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (2018-2020) and she was Editor in Chief of Computing Now (2013-2016) and Associate Editor in Chief of IEEE Transactions on Computers (2007-2012). She is on the IEEE The Institute Advisory Board, as well as on editorial boards of several international journals. She contributed to numerous IEEE international conferences/symposia/workshops as General/Program Chair/co-Chair (14 times), Vice-General/Program Chair/co-Chair (6 times), Topic/Track Chair (34 times), and Technical Program Committee member (94 times). She has published extensively on design for test and reliability of integrated circuits and systems. Her research has received public and private fundings (from companies such as Intel Corporation, STMicroelectronics, Alstom Transport, etc.) at national and international levels.
