We are seeking contributions from the following areas:

SEE Symposium MAPLD
Phenomena: Upset, Transients, Latchup, Gate Rupture, Burnout, Destructive Effects in Bipolar Devices. FPGAs, PLD and New Devices: New and/or novel FPGA, PLDs; Benchmarking of FPGAs, PLDs; Applications of spaceborne processing.
Basic Mechanisms and Modeling: Destructive and Non-Destructive Effects, Nanoscale Phenomena, Effect of Operating Speed, Charge Transport and Collection, Impact of Circuit and Environmental Parameters. Mitigation of Single event effects in PLDs, FPGAs, and commercial electronics: Multi-level approaches for high reliability and fault tolerance (redundancy, TMR, SET filtering, etc…), SEU mitigation techniques and SEE automated tools.
SEE Mitigation Methods Including Hardened by Design (HBD) and by Process: Approaches for gaining SEE hardness in commercial devices. Designing with FPGAs and PLDs: Agile methods, ESL/HLS and Model Based Engineering development techniques, embedded processing, and speeding up synthesis and PAR (NSF CHREC).
Environments and Facilities: Space, Atmospheric and Terrestrial environments. Heavy Ion, Proton, Neutron and Laser Test Facilities. Validation and Verification of FPGAs and PLDs: Verification techniques and languages such as co-simulation, System Verilog and OVM/UVM. Simulation speed-up techniques, emulation, new tools and methods for design validation.
Operational Regimes and Performance Data: Systems and Devices at LEO to Geosynchronous and Beyond, High Altitude Aircraft, and Terrestrial. Reliability/Availability/Susceptibility of programmable devices: Failure mechanisms, reliability testing and characterization, packaging reliability, reliable design practices.
Electronic & Photonic Device Data, Techniques, and Diagnostics: Memories, Latches, Analog Circuits, Microprocessors, FPGAs, Optocouplers, DC to DC Converters, Sensors, Commercial and Hardened Components, Data Capture Methods, and Data Analysis. Novel Applications and Case Studies: Reconfigurable computing, high-performance processing using programmable logic, successful deployment of programmable logic, novel applications and design studies.
Systems: Error Mitigation, Error Detection & Correction, Multi-core Processing, and Fault Tolerant Systems. Education: Education practices, market demands for military and aerospace component engineers, and engineer retention.
Event Rate Computation: Analytic, Monte Carlo, Mixed-Level (Radiation Transport + SPICE, TCAD + SPICE, etc.) Technical Management of FPGAs and PLDs: Technical leadership, process management and metrics.
*All options subject to change any time, per the discretion of the conference committee

The 2019 Preliminary Program will become available after abstract submission and review has completed

All meals and evening functions are included in the Attendee registration fee. 

Exhibitor-Specific Registration Details

Each Exhibit Booth registration includes two (2) "Exhibitor Staff" only and one (1) Exhibitor "Technical Attendee" COMP. To assure accurate information for the Attendee Directory, email Susan at STAMP Services ( the correct contact information for the Exhibitor Technical COMP attendee. If you have more than two (2) exhibitor staff or one (1) technical attendee, or additional business guests, additional registration fees are required. Contact Susan at STAMP Services for assistance in adding exhibitor staff or Technical COMP to your Exhibit Registration. 

For Exhibitor Technical COMP: Email name, e-mail address, phone number, and address if different from the booth registration name. This information will be printed in the Attendee Directory.

For Exhibitor Staff: Email names, e-mail address, and city/state (if different from Exhibit Booth registration) as these names are determined. Meals and evening functions are included for Tuesday (all day) and Wednesday (breakfast and lunch) functions. 

Guest Registration

If you have a personal guest that would like to participate in any of the food functions listed, indicate this on the attendee registration. If you would like to charge the guest fee to a different credit card, contact Susan at STAMP Services for assistance.
