End of Early Registration and Program Announcement

6th MAPLD International Conference

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

About 120 papers on programmable devices and technologies and 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 themes:

? 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

contains registration information, paper titles, authors, and abstracts, as well as biographies of all invited speakers and Panel Session 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 Device 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 the Last 40 Years and Its Impact for Future Systems
