                   6th MAPLD International Conference

           Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade
                           Washington, D.C.
                         9-11 September 2003

   About 120 papers on programmable devices and technologies
   related aspects of digital engineering will be presented at
   the 6th Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices
   (MAPLD) International Conference.  Early registration closes
   Friday, August 8, 2003.

   This year, there will be special emphasis on the following

       Reliability of Hardware and Designs; Fault Tolerance
       Reconfigurable/Adaptive Computing Systems
       Long-term (> 15 years) Space Missions
       Hardware and Software: The Line is Blurring
       Radiation Hardening by Design
       Digital Signal Processing with Programmable Devices
       Design Security
       "War Stories" and Lessons Learned

   CONFERENCE HOME PAGE - http://klabs.org/mapld03 contains
   registration information, paper titles, authors, and
   as well as biographies of all invited speakers and Panel
   members.  Late abstract submissions will be accepted for the
   Poster Session.

   Invited Speakers Include (more to be announced):

      Theron M. Bradley Jr.          Greg Hinckley
      Chief Engineer, NASA           President, Mentor Graphics
      "Welcome and Opening Remarks"  "Mil/Aero and PLD's: A
CEO's View"

   SEMINARS - Two seminars will be presented:
   "Advanced Design: Digital Signal Processing, Programmable
   Architecture, and Military/Aerospace Applications" and
   "Reconfigurable Computing: FPGA-Based, General Purpose, High
   Performance Systems."

   PANEL SESSION: We will have leading engineers and managers
on our
   panel for a spirited "discussion." One question left open
from the
   2002 panel on "Why Is Mars So Hard?" that will be discussed
at the
   2003 panel is ...

                       "Why Is Software So Hard?"
             A Discussion of the Technical, Programmatic, and
           Political Factors That Have Lead To Failures Over
               Last 40 Years and Its Impact for Future Systems
