16th IEEE Latin-American Test Symposium
The IEEE Latin-American Test Symposium (LATS, previously Latin-American Test Workshop - LATW) is a recognized forum for test and fault tolerance professionals and technologists from all over the world, in particular from Latin America, to present and discuss various aspects of system, board, and component testing and fault-tolerance with design, manufacturing and field considerations in mind. Presented papers are also published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The best papers of the 16th LATS will be invited to re-submit to the IEEE Design and Test of Computers, IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design, Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications - JETTA (Springer) and Journal of Low Power Electronics - JOLPE (American Scientific Publishers).
LATS 2015 will take place in Puerto Vallarta. This beautiful city is located in the center of the Bay of Banderas, the largest bay in Mexico, in the north coast region of the state of Jalisco. Puerto Vallarta is the second most important economic zone of the state of Jalisco and the third most important port in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is actually several destinations rolled into one. The River Cuale divides the town into north and south. On the southern end is the quaint Romantic Zone where the Playa los Muertos attracts sun worshippers to its golden sand and countless beach bars. Further south the seaside villages of Boca de Tomatlan and Mismaloya where The Night of the Iguana was filmed beckon. North of the river, the Old Town meanders uphill to Gringo Gulch and along the bay where is found the Plaza de Armas (main square) and Los Arcos amphitheatre where daily free performances draw crowds.
Puerto Vallarta’s renowned Malecon (seaside promenade) runs from the Romantic Zone to the start of the Hotel Zone. Here you’ll find a whimsical collection of bronze sculptures, including the town’s iconic seahorse.
