From the organizer:

"D2T Symposium" will be held on 28th September, 2017, as 12th meeting of symposium series first started in 2008. We have been pursuing in "design", "test", and their bridging technologies in the symposia as indicated in the name "D2T" that means "Design to Test".
This year, we will invite four lecturers overseas for their distinguished research topics related to IoT and data analytics; Prof. Kwang-Ting (Tim) Cheng from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Prof. Shawn Blanton from Carnegie Mellon University, Prof. Wolfgang Kunz and Prof. Dominik Stoffel from Technische Universitat Kaiserslautern. We will also have special lectures from Prof. Shin-ichi Takagi and Prof. Hiroyuki Morikawa from the University of Tokyo.
We look forward to all of your participation in the symposium.
