2018 IRPS Tutorials

Tutorial sessions offer a supreme overview of reliability in semiconductors, circuits, systems unavailable at any other venue at a tremendous value. IRPS conference has a very long history of dedicating two full days to the Tutorials sessions. Since 2011, IRPS conference has offered 129 tutorial 90 minute sessions with an average of over 21 unique sessions per year delivered by industry, academia, and government experts. IRPS tutorial program is designed for the newcomer, the informed, and the expert so whether one is a university student, a field practitioner, or an IEEE fellow, all may gain knowledge in their area or an adjacent one.
