DDECS Workshop is an event organized by Central European countries; the 5th DDECS 2002 is organized by the Faculty of Information Technology of the Brno University of Technology in Czech Republic and sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC). Four previous workshops were held in Czech Republic (1997), Poland (1998), Slovakia (2000) and Hungary (2001).

The 6th DDECS 2003 Workshop will take place in Poland.

The DDECS Workshop has been conceived as a forum for presenting and discussing trends and hot topics in the area of electronic circuit and system design and diagnostics. These two areas are obviously closely related and covering them jointly brings a big potential for mutual stimulation. The Workshop is intended to give researchers, in particular young investigators coming from both academia and industry, a chance to present their results and discuss trends and needs in the areas related to design and diagnostics. This would have a very positive effect both on the academic life and industrial development in Central and Eastern Europe.
