Ninth annual NASA / ESA Adaptive Hardware and Systems conference to take place July 14-18
The University of Leicester will be hosting the 9th annual NASA/ESA Adaptive Hardware and Systems (AHS) conference – the second time in history the event has been hosted by a UK university.
The international event, which takes place from 14 – 18 July in the Peter Williams Lecture Theatre at the University of Leicester, brings together leading researchers from the adaptive hardware and systems community to exchange experiences and share new ideas in the field.
Professor Tanya Vladimirova from the University of Leicester’s Department of Engineering, who is organising the conference, said: “We are grateful to the Conference Steering Committee for entrusting us with the organisation of this prestigious and prominent scientific event.
“We are proud that we have put together a strong multidisciplinary programme featuring state-of-the-art tutorials, keynotes, invited and regular sessions on challenging topics and a related workshop. It is going to be a truly international event with academics, researchers and industrialists coming from all over the world, e.g. UK, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore, China, Jordan, UAE, etc.
“We wish to acknowledge the help, support and hard work of the many individuals who made AHS-2014 a reality. We express our gratitude to the Programme Committee for their vital assistance in the refereeing process. We thank our sponsors: the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the European Space Agency and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. Last but not least, I wish to thank my research team and the Department of Engineering for the enormous contribution to the event. I am looking forward to a stimulating and thought provoking AHS-2014!”
Professor Vladimirova’s research group will be participating with 6 papers at the conference, which will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore - the highest level of publication in the area of electrical and electronics engineering.
Keynote speakers will include Philippe Armbruster, Head of Data Systems Division at the European Space Agency (ESA), who will be discussing ‘ESA Developments for On-board Data Systems’; Andy Bradford, Director of Special Programmes at Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd., who will be discussing ‘Small Satellites – the Disruptive Use of COTS Technologies’; and Avelino Martin, Head of Hardware Design Assurance at Airbus Defence and Space - Military Aircraft, who will be discussing ‘Multi-Core Processors in Critical Applications’.
AHS-2014 is co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (IEEE-CAS) and is organized in Cooperation with ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM-SIGDA).
The 2014 NASA/ESA Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems (AHS-2014) will be held during July 14 - 18, 2014 in the Peter Williams Lecture Theatre, University of Leicester.
