1st RESCUE Winter Workshop in Cottbus and Frankfurt-Oder

Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg and IHP Microelectronics organise the first 5-day internal RESCUE ETN Winter Workshop in December, 2017. The event will be held in Cottbus, Germany in the BTU campus with one training day at the IHP site in Frankfurt-Oder.

The event targets to gather for the first time the complete RESCUE training network including the 15 recruited ESRs, academic and industrial supervisors, external and internal trainers of technical and transferable skills, partner organisation members and advisory board members.

The intensive agenda of the workshop includes:

- orientation to the European Training Network RESCUE organisation and concepts

- technical academic and industrial tutorials

- training of transferable skills

- half-day discussions of intranetwork research collaboration of ESRs and exchanging ideas for ESRs’ individual career development

- Supervisory Board meeting and meetings with the External Expert Advisory Board

- ESR Assembly caucus

- as well as social and networking activities

One full training day will be held in the premises of the IHP Microelectronics institute allowing RESCUE ESRs to visit the European cutting-edge technology labs for nanoelectronics manufacturing and hardware security research environments.

There is an online exam, where students are requested to answer 2-3 technical questions for each tutorial.
The exam will be a basis for receiving credit points at the host universities, and will also allow lecturers to follow the perception of the material by the workshop attendees.
The set of exam questions and instructions are here.

The workshop is organised in cooperation with the H2020-TWINN TUTORIAL project (overlapping partners: TUT, TUD, PDT). This cooperation has enabled participation in the workshop by selected non-RESCUE PhD students from these universities.

The General Chair for the 1st RESCUE Winter Workshop is Prof. H.T. Vierhaus (BTU).

RESCUE 2017 Workshop on Reliability, Security and Quality

RESCUE ETN co-organizes the Workshop on Reliability, Security and Quality - RESCUE at the IEEE European Test Symposium on May 25-26, 2017 in Limassol, Cyprus. 

Relationship between reliability, quality and security is contradictory: despite pursuing the same goal, i.e. the safe and correct operation of a computing system, they start from completely different assumptions. Quality and reliability address technical errors occurring during design and manufacturing of the computing system and along its lifetime, while security aims at defeating malicious attempts of altering the normal behavior of the system. These design aspects set mutual constraints and contradicting requirements, nevertheless techniques from one discipline can be successfully applied to the other (e.g., fault tolerance to counteract fault injection attacks). Eventually, designers should guarantee the correct operation of the system, regardless of origin of the malfunctioning, i.e. being it malicious or technical. In this context, it is essential that designers are aware of the complete picture, and that researchers from these interdependent disciplines meet and exchange ideas and challenges. The RESCUE workshop establishes an open forum bringing together the security community with the reliability, testing and verification communities to encourage fruitful discussions and collaborations involving researchers from both academic and industrial sectors. The workshop targets at designers of hardware and software layers of computing systems.

The highlights of the event are keynotes and invited talks from distinguished experts, oral and poster presentation of peer-reviewed contributions from the community and a Wine&Cheese Panel organized jointly with the the parallel ETS 2017 Fringe Workshop TESTA. 

The workshop will be followed by the RESCUE ETN Kick-Off Management Meeting (same venue, 16:45-20:00, Friday, May 26, 2017).
