Program Announcement and Registration Open

6th MAPLD International Conference

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

Over 110 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.

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

CONFERENCE HOME PAGE - 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 Corporation
"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

James Tomayko Carnegie Mellon University
Paul Cerruzi National Air and Space Museum

Opening Case Studies:
Tony Spear, JPL Magellan and Mars Pathfinder

John P. Dimtroff Aircraft Certification Engineer, FAA
Jack Garman Lockheed-Martin (NASA, retired)
Nancy Leveson Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics, MIT
Jim Lewis SynthWorks Design Inc.
