ANOUNCEMENT

This is advance notice of and a call for participation for the seventh workshop on space computing. The main sessions are June 17-19, 2014, with working group sessions on June 16, in Albuquerque. Note that the only activities on the 19th are "closed." Details will appear on this website as time progresses.

Like previous years, the topic will be R&D for next generation spacecraft computing systems, including hardware, security/trust, software, and applications.

SOLICITATION FOR PRESENTATIONS

This year, the meeting will be focused on multi-organizational projects and collaborative R&D that could contribute to building space processors. The organizers are issuing through this page an invitation for presentations on projects or capabilities. Please respond via e-mail to any of the organizers and include a semi-formal proposal.

WORKING GROUPS AND SOLICITATION FOR OTHER WORKING GROUPS

We will have working groups as in past years. Some working groups have been organized already and we are soliciting ideas and participation in organizing others: The conference has a capacity for other working groups, and we are soliciting ideas and organizers. If you would like to propose a working group, please contact one of the organizers.

ASSOCIATED USER GROUP AND SOLICITATION FOR USER GROUPS

The meeting organizers have been approached by the Maestro/Tilera user group about holding one of their twice-yearly meetings in conjunction with the space computing conference. The organizers are soliciting other communities of interest that may be interested in meeting in conjunction with the meeting.

ATTENDENCE AND REGISTRATION FEE

Attendance is by invitation only. If you are in the industry and would like an invitation, please call Erik DeBenedictis (505) 284-4017 or e-mail
erikdebenedictis@sandia.gov. The registration fee is TBD, but is likely to be in the range of $150 (but see next paragraph). The fee is set to cover the cost of food due principally to gifting regulations pertaining to government participants. Registration is not open at present.

If payment of a registration fee creates difficulties, please call Erik DeBenedictis (505) 284-4017 or e-mail erikdebenedictis@sandia.gov and we will work out alternative arrangements.
