    2005 MAPLD International Conference

    Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
    Washington, D.C.

    September 7-9, 2005

    The 8th annual Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Device
    (MAPLD) International Conference will present papers on programmable
    logic devices and technologies, digital engineering, and related
    fields, for military and aerospace applications. Devices,
    technologies, logic design, verification, flight applications, fault
    tolerance, reliability, radiation susceptibility, and encryption
    applications of programmable devices, processors, and adaptive
    computing systems in military and aerospace systems are topics for

    For 2005, MAPLD will be expanded to 3 full days and will feature
    expanded "Birds of a Feather" Workshop Sessions. 165 oral and poster
    presentations are currently on the program. Four full-day seminars
    will be offered on September 6, 2005.
