Call For Papers

DFT is an annual Symposium providing an open forum for presentations in the field of defect and fault tolerance in VLSI and nanotechnology systems inclusive of emerging technologies, RISC-V architectures and AI-based solutions. One of the unique features of this symposium is to combine new academic research with state-of-the-art industrial data, necessary ingredients for significant advances in this field. All aspects of design, manufacturing, test, reliability, availability, and security that are affected by defects during manufacturing and by faults during system operation are of interest.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

1. Yield Analysis and Modeling
Defect/fault analysis and models; statistical yield modeling; diagnosis; critical area and other metrics.
2. Testing Techniques
Built-in self-test; delay fault modeling and diagnosis; testing for analog and mixed circuits; online testing; signal and clock integrity.
3. Design For Testability in IC Design
FPGA, SoC, NoC, ASIC, low power design and micro-processors, including RISC-V architectures
4. Error Detection, Correction, and Recovery
Self-testing and self-checking solutions; error-control coding; fault masking and avoidance; recovery schemes, space/time redundancy; hw/sw techniques; architectural and system-level techniques.
5. Dependability Analysis and Validation
Fault injection techniques and frameworks; dependability and characterization, cross-layer reliability analysis, dependability analysis for AI and machine learning.
6. Repair, Restructuring and Reconfiguration
Repairable logic; reconfigurable circuit design; DFT for on-line operation; self-healing; reliable FPGA-based systems.
7. Defect and Fault Tolerance
Reliable circuit/system synthesis; fault tolerant processes and design; design space exploration for dependable systems, transient/soft faults.
8. Radiation effects
SEEs on nanotechnologies; modeling of radiation environments; radiation experiments; radiation hardening techniques.
9. Aging and Lifetime Reliability
Aging characterization and modeling; design and run-time reliability, thermal, and variability management and recovery.
10. Dependable Applications and Case Studies
Methodologies and case studies: 2.5D/3D ICs, IoT, automotive/railway/avionics/space, autonomous systems, industrial control, fail-safe systems, dependable AI.
11. Emerging Technologies
Error management techniques for quantum computing, memristors, spintronics, microfluidics, approximate computing, etc.
12. Design for Security
Fault attacks, fault tolerancebased countermeasures, scan-based attacks and countermeasures, hardware trojans, system obfuscation and logic locking, secure AI, security vs. reliability, interaction between VLSI test, trust, and reliability.

DFT 2024 also seeks proposals for Special Sessions. These should aim at providing a complementary experience with respect to the regular ses-sions by focusing on hot and emerging topics of interest to the DFT community, as well as on multi-disciplinary topics, that are expected to have a significant impact on DFT activities in the next future (e.g. neutron radiation testing, security and reliability of the RISC-V architecture, re-liability aspects in Machine Learning, Approximate Computing, In-Memory Computing, Quan-tum Computing, use of COTS electronics for space applications). A special session could con-sist of a set of individual presentations, embedded tutorial or a panel. Participation of experts from the industry is welcome and encouraged.
