ANOUNCEMENT

This is notice of and a call for participation for the eighth workshop on space computing. The main sessions are May 27-28, 2015, with working group sessions on May 26 and 29, in Albuquerque. The afternoon session of May 28 will be "closed."

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 and their applications. 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.
