Dear Colleagues:

I would like to let you know about the Adaptive Hardware and Systems
Conference in Istanbul in June of this year. Please find the CFP

This is the first international version of a NASA/DoD conference that
was so far held 7 times in the US. This year the sponsor list grew to
include the European Space Agency, University of Edinburgh, Bahcesehir
University, and Technical Research Council of Turkey. The program
includes renowned people such as Stanford's John Koza who pioneered the
area of
genetic programming.

Your participation in this conference with or without a paper will
enrich the event. We are looking forward to seeing you in Istanbul
where East
meets West and are hoping that you will share this information with
your colleagues interested in adaptive, reconfigurable, evolvable
and related areas.

I wish you all the best in 2006.

Conference Venue
AHS'2006 will be held at the Hilton Istanbul , Cumhuriyet Caddesi,
Harbiye, Istanbul, Turkey.

The First Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems (AHS'2006)
will be held June 16-18, 2006, in Istanbul, Turkey,
immediately following the IEEE Conference on Communications (June 11-
15). The purpose of this conference is to bring
together leading researchers from the adaptive hardware and systems
community to exchange experiences and share
new ideas in the field. The conference expands the topics addressed
by the precursor series of NASA/DoD Conference
on Evolvable Hardware held between 1999 and 2005.
Adaptation reflects the capability of a system to maintain or
improve its performance in the context of internal or external
changes, such as uncertainties and variations during fabrication,
faults and degradations, modifications in the operational
environment, incidental or intentional interference, different users
and preferences, modifications of standards and
requirements, trade-offs between performance and resources, etc.
Adaptation at hardware levels increases the system capabilities
beyond what is possible with software-only solutions, and
a large number of adaptation features employing both analog and
digital adjustments are becoming increasingly present
in the most elementary system components. Algorithms, techniques,
and their implementation in hardware are developed
over a diverse variety of applications, such as adaptive
communications (adapting to changing environment and
interferences), reconfigurable systems on a chip and portable
wireless devices (adapting to power limitations) or
survivable spacecraft (adapting to extreme environments and mission
unknowns). This meeting will provide a forum for
discussion on the generic techniques of adaptive hardware and
systems, with a focus on communications and space
applications, with view to its expansion and exploitation in other
applications such as consumer, medical, defense and
security, etc.

Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
Built-in tunable structures and automated tuning
Built-in self-test and self-repair
On-chip learning and adaptation
Adaptive circuits and configurable IP cores
Reconfigurable and morphable hardware
Evolvable hardware
Design for adaptive systems
Adaptive control circuits
Adaptive flight hardware
Search and optimization algorithms for adaptive hardware
Hardware implementations of optimization engines
Learning and evolutionary algorithms for adaptive hardware
Algorithms for exploring design space of adaptive hardware
