saltIEEE Autotestcon
Salt Lake City

8–11 September

Billed as the only conference in the world focused primarily on automated testing technology for military, government, and aerospace applications, Autotestcon has been an annual event since 1965.

This year’s theme is system readiness. The conference features papers on diagnostics, instrumentation, logistics, and verification of automated and computer-controlled test systems and software. Attendees, who can browse more than 250 exhibits set up by over 100 companies and U.S. military groups, have opportunities to interact with acquisition officials, engineers, logistics experts, and weapons systems managers.

Social activities include a golf tournament on 8 September and a dinner on 10 September.

SPONSORS: IEEE Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society, IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society
