The European Test Symposium (ETS'18) offers the 3 days Test Spring School (TSS@ETS 2018, May 25 - 28) for Ph.D. and M.Sc. students who will be introduced into modern safety and security technology. Renowned experts will give lectures and will cover the main challenges of safety and security of today's hardware infrastructures. The spring school also offers the state of the art design, test, verification and validation techniques tackling safety and security. The spring school will give the opportunity to earn credits and a certificate by passing an exam online. The spring school is open for registered students at a moderate fee and welcomes also industrial professionals at a higher rate.

The overall theme of this year is Hardware Safety and Security. The first two lectures cover hardware functional safety including design, verification, validation and test. The third and fourth lectures cover hardware security, cryptographic hardware essentials and security threats of hardware infrastructures. One of the last two lectures covers in-system runtime test for functional safety whereas the other lecture covers authentication side channel attacks and intrusion in the context of hardware security.

The spring school is organized in conjunction with ETS 2018, and the last two lectures are open for the general ETS attendees without additional fee. The spring school is also organized in cooperation with H2020 TWINN TUTORIAL project, H2020 RESCUE European Training Network and the project SHIVA (Secure Hardware in Information Processing) funded by the BW-Stiftung of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. TSS@ETS is offered to registered students at low cost rate. The spring school is also open for professionals at higher rates, however priority is given to students on first-come, first-served basis, as the number of attendees is strictly limited.

The TSS takes place at the scenic Etelsen castle in the small town Langwedel next to Bremen, Germany where ETS will be held. The registration site is now open. The early registration deadline is April 10th 2018. After this date, accommodation cannot be guaranteed. The number of places in the school being limited, all registrations will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
