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: Hungary (2001, 2005), Austria (2010), Germany (2011), Estonia (2012), Czech Republic (1997, 2002, 2006, 2009, 2013), Poland (1998, 2003, 2007, 2014), Serbia (2015) and Slovakia (2000, 2004, 2008, 2016).

Dresden, the capital of Saxony, is situated on the river Elbe near the borders with Poland and Czech Republic. It is the biggest microelectronic center in Europe and has several universities, the biggest is the Technical University. Institutes and divisions from the German major research organisations, like Fraunhofer, Helmholtz and Leibniz, are settled in Dresden. Furthermore Dresden has a lot of theatres, museums and galleries and a long history in culture, industry, and academic research.
