         Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
                           Washington, D.C.

                          September 7-9, 2005

   The 8th annual Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Device
   (MAPLD) International Conference will present papers on programmable
   logic devices and technologies, digital engineering, and related
   fields, for military and aerospace applications.   Devices,
   technologies, logic design, verification, flight applications, fault
   tolerance, reliability, radiation susceptibility, and encryption
   applications of programmable devices, processors, and adaptive
   computing systems in military and aerospace systems are topics for

   For 2005, MAPLD will be expanded to 3 full days and will feature
   expanded "Birds of a Feather" Workshop Sessions.  165 oral and poster
   presentations are currently on the program.  Four full-day seminars
   will be offered on September 6, 2005.
