The purpose of the symposium is the exchange of scientific information, the establishment of scientific contacts and planning on this basis of joint scientific research in the field of fundamental and applied problems of reliability and quality; as well as communication of scientists, industry representatives, specialists, applicants and graduate students:
• on fundamental and applied problems of reliability, safety and quality of design, production, operation and maintenance of complex high-tech technical products;
on the problems of the development and implementation of methods and means of improving the reliability and quality of innovative information and communication technologies in science, industry and education;
• on problems of training highly qualified personnel.
This will allow us to comprehensively assess the status of work, develop and implement optimal schemes and ways for the development of basic and applied research, high technology, and education, which is confirmed by many years of international practice.

The history of the symposium

The symposium has a long history, which began with scientific and technical conferences on the problems of reliability of electronic equipment, conducted since 1984. by department of "Design and manufacture of radio equipment" Penza State University in Penza. The geography, the list of participants, the topics of the reports gradually expanded and as a result the conference turned into an international symposium. Since 1996, the symposium has been held at the Birch Grove sanatorium, located in the picturesque green area of the Sursky reservoir, 25 km from Penza.
