The 2018 ITEA Test Technology Review Workshop is scheduled for September 26-27, 2018 with the theme “Testing Tomorrow’s Technology with Today’s Capabilities”. Current test and evaluation capabilities haven’t kept pace with state-of-the-art technologies being developed and designed into commercial and military systems. Innovative test approaches using current test capability infrastructure as well as more capable instrumentation and measurement systems will be required to adequately address this challenge. Examples of these advanced technologies include robotics, artificial intelligence, nano-scale electronics, high performance sensors, 5G wireless systems, and complex human machine interfaces.
ITEA is a 501(c)(3) professional education association dedicated to the education and advancement of the test and evaluation profession. Registration fees, membership dues, and sponsorships are tax deductible.
Your sponsorship dollars help defer the cost of the Symposium and support the ITEA scholarship fund, which assists deserving students in their pursuit of academic disciplines related to the test and evaluation profession. Sponsorship and related benefits will become effective on receipt of payment.
NOTE: This ITEA event is a non-competitive environment meant for a free exchange of ideas and information.
All presenters will be given the opportunity to have their papers published in The ITEA Journal. Workshop participants will receive, within 30-45 days following the meeting, a link to comprehensive, unclassified materials from key note and special guest speakers, panel sessions, technical tracks and technical papers.
Presentation topics must either be about advanced technologies, challenges in testing advanced technologies, or advanced technologies that could improve current test capabilities. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit both a paper and presentation however the paper is not required. All materials must be cleared for public release, so please start your internal release process as soon as possible.
Deadline for abstract submissions is July 6, 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance by july 27, 2018. Full papers and presentations are due by September 7, 2018.
Full papers are especially solicited and will be considered for publication in The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation. Manuscript guidelines are found at www.itea.org.under the Publications tab. All papers and presentations must be cleared for public release. Full papers are due by October 12, 2018.
If you’ve conducted ground-breaking research, used “best-in-class” techniques, deployed successful processes, or developed unique procedures in the field of test and evaluation, work that your peers would be interested in learning, presenting at ITEA Workshops is an important part of your professional development, by providing you with an amazing opportunity to learn from your peers, share your experiences, and contribute to advancing the Test and Evaluation profession.
Presenting at the Test Technology Review provides you the chance to:
Presentations at ITEA events should:
If you would like to also submit a paper for consideration for publication in The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation you will need to prepare a full manuscript that adheres to the Journal guidelines. The submitting author must also complete and sign a copyright agreement and release form. Visit www.itea.org/Journal for the manuscript guidelines.
The 2018 Test Technology Review will be held in Huntsville, Alabama. We are currently looking at several possible locations within Cummings Research Park for this event.
The Test Technology Review provides 4 contact hours of instruction (4 CEUs) for each half-day, 8 contact hours of instruction (8 CEUs) for each full-day, or 16 contact hours of instruction (16 CEUs) for attending the full Test Technology Review, that are directly applicable to your professional development program, including the Certified Test and Evaluation Professional Credential (CTEP).
