Call for Papers

7th 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

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.

an abundance of information on both technical and programmatic
aspects of the conference.
