The Program for Test Forum 2006

After many years in different Scandinavian counties,
TestForum will for the first time take place in Finland.
 We have chosen the town of Tuusula close to Helsinki,
for its easy access to the Helsinki Vantaa International
airport  and road access from the capital area. This we
have done based on feedback from previous TestForums so
we do listen to your views

Tauno Jokinen from Oulu University will give a
keynote speech on the topic "Challenges of Testing Over
Innovation Life Cycle". Tauno Jokinen has many years of
experience from various positions in the industry and
academia and will most certainly give an interesting and
entertaining speech.

The topic for this year’s panel debate is "Selecting
the right instrument bus" and will be preceded by
presentations within this topic from providers and users

The sessions covering structural test includes
presentations on X-Ray, fixturing and boundary scan. We
will get up-to-date information on the development of
new boundary scan standards. Additionally this year we
have some Academic presentations, focusing on the future
of testing.

The entire committee and I look forward to welcoming
you at this years TestForum.

Yours sincerely

Knut Båtstoløkken

Chairman of Nordic Test Forum
