Announcing MTV 2018

The 19th annual workshop on Microprocessor and SOC Test and Verification will be held in Austin, TX on Dec 10-11, 2018. The Call-for-Paper will come out soon. Please consult the Call-for Papers for important information and deadlines.

General Chair: Magdy S. Abadir
Vice General Chair: Li-C. Wang, University of California at Santa Barbara
Vice General Chair: Jay Bhadra, Advanced Micro Devices
Program Co-Chair: Wen Chen, NXP Semiconductors
Program Co-Chair: Xiao (Sean) Sun, NXP Semiconductors
Security Track Co-Chair: Sohrab Aftabjahani, Intel Corporation
Security Track Co-Chair: Sandip Ray, University of Florida


The purpose of MTV is to bring researchers and practitioners from the fields of verification, security and test together to exchange innovative ideas and to develop new methodologies to solve the difficult challenges facing us today in various processor and SOC design environments. In the past few years, some work has been done on exploiting techniques from test to solve problems in security and verification and vice versa. This is the 19th edition of the MTV Workshop, a testament to its success in providing an ideal environment for cross- examination of test, security and verification experiences and innovative solutions.

MTV 2017 Recap

MTV 2017 was held on December 11-12, 2017 and it was very successful and very well attended by experts from around the globe. The full two-day program featured a keynote speech, invited talks by verification experts, several technical paper sessions and panels. There were also three special sessions on the hot topic of Security. To encourage and promote technical exchange among the attendees continental breakfast and lunch were provided on both days. As customary, MTV attendees enjoyed a lavish banquet dinner at Fogo De Chao Brazilian restaurant in downtown Austin.
