SEE/MAPLD Needs Your Help
Sign up / encourage others to join our official email list for workshop announcements
(Opt-In; Managed by NASA/NEPP for Conference and Workshop Outreach)

Please join us during the week of August 30th, 2021 for the virtually held

30th Edition of the Single Event Effects (SEE) Symposium and Military and Aerospace
Programmable Logic Devices (MAPLD)

We are seeking contributions in the following areas, but all submissions will be reviewed. Four sessions are available: SEE, MAPLD, Combined, and Poster. The Combined Session includes submissions that cross SEE and MAPLD themes. The Poster Session can include SEE, MAPLD, or Combined content. Please refrain from technical content reasonably classified as product marketing.

Acknowledging the events of the past year, our technical chairs especially encourage the submission of content focusing on:
1) Standards & Methods 4) Modeling and Simulation
2) Alternatives to Heavy Ion and Proton Testing 5) Relevant Test Facility Updates
3) Space Environments

Submit Your Abstract Here

Deadline has been extended to April 28, 2021
