The International Design and Test Symposium is an IEEE-sponsored technical event devoted to exploring emerging challenges and novel concepts related to the design, test, automation, and reliability of electronic systems ranging from integrated circuits through multi-chip modules and printed circuit boards to full systems. IDT is a unique forum to discuss best practices and novel ideas in design methods, tools, test, and reliability in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. The Symposium is initiated by and in affiliation with the IEEE TTTC (Test Technology Technical Council) and the 2017 edition is organized by Kuwait University (KU). It is also technically sponsored by IEEE CEDA (Council on Electronic Design Automation). 

The IDT moves around the countries of the MEA region, making the member countries benefit equally to the fullest extent. This year, IDT will be held in Kuwait. Kuwait is known of its support to advancing research in the region.
