Fwd: Call For Participation: 2011 Flight Software Workshop



Hi,

For those in this domain, this is a wonderful
workshop.  I plan to attend and present again
this year.  If any RTEMS users in the flight
software domain have any suggestions for the
presentation, I am open to ideas.

Call for Participation

2011 Workshop on Spacecraft Flight Software (FSW-11)
October 19 - 21, 2011

Hosted by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory with
support from the Southwest Research Institute, the 2011 Workshop on
Spacecraft Flight Software (FSW-11) will take place from October 19 -
21, 2011 at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in
Laurel, MD.

With the advent of faster processors and advanced hardware
architectures, the modern spacecraft is highly reliant upon flight
software for mission success. Software is integral to most of the
spacecraft subsystems ranging from power to propulsion to instrument
operations. Additionally, spacecraft developers are moving beyond
providing only infrastructure to creating applications that can
revolutionize how these vehicles are operated and how data is
processed on-board.

This workshop provides an opportunity to present current flight
architectures, novel approaches to mission solutions, and techniques
for flight software development, integration, test and verification in
an informal and open setting that facilitates communication across
organizations and agencies. The following is a list of potential
subject areas:

* Flight software engineering and testing
* Autonomy
* Navigation, fault management, & command sequence control
* On-board communication
* Space network protocols
* On-board data processing
* Software modeling, simulation and test-beds
* Spacecraft software architectures
* Guidance and control
* Flight processors and operating systems
* Planning, tasking and execution
* Relation to systems engineering
* Software Verification and Validation
* Lessons learned

This is a PRESENTATION ONLY workshop. Presentations MUST NOT contain
US Export Controlled information (aka ITAR), and notice of this must
be indicated on all presentations.

To submit an abstract or register, email workshop at flightsoftware.org 
<mailto:workshop at flightsoftware.org>
indicating whether you would like to attend or present.

There is no fee for attending the workshop, the cost is FREE. However
attendance will be limited to 120 attendees.

Important Dates:

* First Call for Presentations: March 30, 2011
* Abstract Deadline: July 19, 2011
