    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
