Program of Presentations and Tutorials

This matrix presents the program of the presentations, tutorials and other events planned for the 2017 International Applied Reliability Symposium Europe. You can choose to attend presentations in any of the three tracks. The Red and Blue rooms offer presentations on a wide variety of reliability topics. The Green room features topics related more specifically to durability and fatigue.

Optional Free Session: On Tuesday, April 18, we are offering complimentary sessions in reliability and durability/fatigue (10:00 am to 3:00 pm). The sessions are open to the public (ARS registration is not required). However, seating is limited, so you must reserve your spot in advance: Free Reliability Session | Free Durability/Fatigue Session
