The Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS®) is the premier event in the reliability, availability, and maintainability engineering disciplines. Combining tutorials, presentations, CEUs, certifications, and networking into one week-long program, the RAMS® delivers cutting edge information to all technical industries.
RAMS® 2015 will be held in Palm Harbor, FL, January 26-29, 2015.
Reliability is not just an attribute to be measured: it can be engineered into your products to provide an objective justification for customer confidence. The 2015 theme: “Unleashing R&M Knowledge”.
RAMS® 2015 will bring together an international audience of R&M leaders and professionals for in-depth sessions and tutorials presented by top experts, exhibits featuring leading companies, keynote session insights, networking and job related opportunities, and more.
The program includes:
• Tutorials, from basic to advanced
• Technical paper sessions
• Panel sessions
• Exhibits program
• Certificate program
• Networking opportunities
• Short Courses
PAPERS – Submit your paper for review and possible selection for publication and presentation at RAMS 2015. Papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings, and submitted for consideration in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library if the papers comply with the RAMS program criteria and IEEE style guide. If your paper is selected, you will present your paper at a half-hour session at the Symposium. Only presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
TUTORIALS – topics range from introductory to advanced, and will be presented in two-hour, in-depth sessions at the Symposium. The two-level RAMS® Tutorial Certificate Program is offered. The first level requires attending five core concept tutorials; the second level requires an additional 10 tutorials based on professional needs and interests, taken across at least two Symposia. Due to the timeliness of the material, the Certificate Program must be completed within four years of the first core tutorial. Upon completion of the program, the participant will receive a RAMS® certificate, a letter of completion, and a list of tutorials attended.
Attendees continue to provide positive feedback on the practical, as well as theoretical, technical content of this symposium. The 2015 content is expected to feature roughly half the sessions presented as tutorials, and the other half as technical papers on reliability advances and case studies.
Unlike some technical conferences where The Proceedings represent the primary product, RAMS® is a professional symposium that emphasizes the benefits to be derived from face-to-face contact with peers facing similar technical challenges.
