    The MAPLD program features approximately 130 technical presentations
    in a variety of sessions, seminars, and workshops, as well as over 30
    Industrial and Government Exhibits covering 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. Abstracts are
    available on-line, via the conference home page.

    The Invited Speaker program will include:
