SERESSA combines academic, government, and industrial communities working in the area of radiation effects on embedded systems. Radiation effects are a significant concern for space and avionics systems, as well as for critical applications operating at ground level such as automotive, high energy facilities, medical or even banking. The school is based on lectures, exercises, and practical courses involving real case studies using the common tools of the domain. The intended audience includes both beginning and experienced researchers, engineers, and post-graduate students wishing to enhance their knowledge base in this rapidly evolving field. Topics covered by SERESSA include: radiation environment, spacecraft anomalies, single-event effects (SEE), total dose effects (TID), radiation effects in power systems, radiation effects in solar cells, architecture hardening in analog, and digital circuits and in memories, software hardening, effects in FPGAs, hardness assurance, rate prediction, radiation testing, laser testing and remote testing experiments.

The scope of SERESSA is covered by the following or related topics:

  • Radiation Environment
  • Radiation effects in materials
  • Spacecraft Anomalies
