Autotestcon Scheduled for Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City, UT — IEEE Autotestcon 2008 will be held at the beautiful and spacious Salt Palace Convention Center located in the heart of Salt Lake City, UT, Monday, September 8 through Thursday, September 11, 2008. Autotestcon 2008 will occupy 73,000 square feet of exhibit space with over 290 exhibit booths displaying the latest in test technologies and services.

The convention will also host five technical tracks and will use a 45,000 square foot ballroom to accommodate plenary sessions, all within the Salt Palace Convention Center.

The conference theme, "Surpassing the Limits — Forging Ahead", will guide the technical program and focus on the future of automatic test. Attendees will have the opportunity to preview many new products from a wide variety of exhibitors, and to meet with senior military and aerospace leaders to discuss their future needs and expectations.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Engage in discussion about new system readiness technologies.
  • Consult colleagues and industry professionals about the changing needs of client applications.
  • Discover innovative technical and management approaches.
  • Explore well over 250 exhibit booths presented by over 100 exhibiting companies and U.S. military divisions.
  • Interact with weapon systems managers, acquisition officials, engineers and logisticians.
  • Listen to and interact with the world?s best in Automatic Test.

IEEE Autotestcon is the world's only conference that focuses primarily on Automated Test and related technology for military, government and aerospace applications. It has been in existence for over 40 years, and has grown into the premier annual conference for this application field.

The conference, known as the "Systems Readiness Technology Conference" because of its extreme relativity to the readiness of military systems, is owned by the IEEE, an international non-profit technical society with over 350,000 members. The conference also has an expanded focus into commercial areas that share a common technical base, including aerospace, vehicle and automotive, and commercial factory test applications. The attendance profile includes hardware and software engineers, program managers, scientists and researchers, and marketing officials in commercial industry, government, and military.

Autotestcon is a comprehensive technical conference that provides an open forum for leaders in design, development, procurement, applications and operations to exchange information relative to their specific needs and disciplines concerning automated and computer-controlled test systems and software. Heavy focus is given to manufacturing and maintenance testing environments. In addition to the comprehensive Technical Program, which normally runs for 2 1/2 days, there is a full suite of directly related exhibits that provide significant enhancement to the technical focus. There is also a Seminars Program held the Monday prior to the actual start of the conference, that provides a number of courses in the Automatic Test field, covering hardware, software, and Test Program Set topics of interest.
