The IEEE International Symposium on Design and Diagnostics of Electronic Circuits and Systems provides a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing research results, and presenting practical applications in the areas of design, test, and diagnosis of electronic circuits and systems. The DDECS Symposium series has been organized by these European countries: Czech Republic (1997, 2002, 2006, 2009, 2013), Poland (1998, 2003, 2007, 2014), Slovakia (2000, 2004, 2008), Hungary (2001, 2005), Austria (2010), Germany (2011), Estonia (2012), and Serbia (2015).


DDECS 2016 will take place in Košice, the metropolis of eastern Slovakia. It is situated on the river Hornád near the borders with Hungary, Poland and Ukraine. Being the economic and cultural centre, it is the seat of the Košice region parliament, the Slovak Constitutional Court, three universities, various dioceses, and many museums, galleries, and theatres. Košice has a well-preserved historical centre, which is the largest among Slovak towns. In 2013, it was the European Capital of Culture.
