Advantest's VOICE 2021 Conference goes virtual
Advantest says it’s VOICE 2021 Developer Conference will be held as a virtual event, citing continuing health and safety concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the public health emergency unyielding on a global basis, this decision removes the risk of exposing VOICE participants to potential illness.
Registration for Virtual VOICE, to be held June 21-23, 2021, will open in March.
“VOICE is an extremely important event for Advantest and a valuable way for us to connect with our customers and partners from around the world. However, with the pandemic not backing down in key areas, we have made the difficult decision to transition VOICE 2021 into a virtual format,” said Doug Lefever, Advantest America’s president and CEO. “Despite a preference for an on-site event, a survey of participants indicated that under the circumstances a virtual conference would be prudent as it would still enable the sharing of essential information between Advantest, its developers, and its customers.”
“Virtual VOICE promises a collaboration of minds and opportunities for peer networking. With a full program and a line-up of dynamic speakers, there is no question that the conference will deliver on that promise,” Lefever continued.
Virtual VOICE 2021 will follow a format similar to the in-person event, featuring a comprehensive technical program focused on leading-edge technologies and future trends, thought-provoking keynotes, and a Partners’ Expo. The technical program will incorporate nearly 80 papers covering eight technology tracks and an interactive Technology Kiosk Showcase highlighting the latest Advantest innovations.
A Workshop Day on June 24 will provide further in-depth, practical learning experiences. Participants will attend their choice of a full-day, hands-on workshop session covering topics such as communications, computation and migration.
Sponsorship and other promotional activities are available.
Advantest is committed to holding VOICE 2022 in-person at the OMNI Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia on May 17-18, 2022 with a Workshop Day to follow on May 19.
