Call for Papers7th Mil/Aerospace Applications of Programmable Logic Devices International Conference (MAPLD)
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center Washington, D.C. September 8-10, 2004
Hosted by the NASA Office of Logic Design
Abstracts due April 26, 2004 to firstname.lastname@example.org
The 7th annual MAPLD International Conference's extensive program will include presentations, seminars, workshops, and exhibits on programmable logic devices and technologies, digital engineering, and related fields for military and aerospace applications. Devices, technologies, logic design, flight applications, fault tolerance, usage, reliability, radiation susceptibility, and encryption applications of programmable devices, processors, and adaptive computing systems in military and aerospace systems are among the subjects for the conference.
We are planning an exciting event with presentations by Government, industry, and academia, including talks by distinguished Invited Speakers. This conference is open to US and foreign participation and is not classified. For related information, please see the NASA Office of Logic Design Web Site
This year, there will be special emphasis on the following themes:
? "War Stories" and Lessons Learned ? Programmable Logic and Obsolescence Issues ? Implementing high performance, high reliability processor cores. ? Logic design evaluation, design guidelines, and recommendations. ? Verification methods for radiation hardness and fault tolerance. ? Applications such as MIL-STD interfaces, UAV's, and controllers. ? Automated Checkers for low reliability design constructs. ? PLD tools/methods that we need but vendors don't supply.
