This is advance notice of and issue a call for participation for the fourth space computing workshop, May 24-25, 2011, with working group sessions May 23 and 26, in Albuquerque. 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, software, and cross-cutting issues such as trust.
SOLICITATION FOR PRESENTATIONS AND PAPERS
This year, the workshop will include a mix of contributed and invited presentations and papers. The organizers have begun to get commitments from some speakers for invited talks. However, the organizers are issuing through this page an invitation for talks or written papers consistent with the objectives above. If you would like to make a presentation or submit a paper for review, 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:
- Software, including middleware and real time operating systems — Larry Bergman and Marti Bancroft POCs.
- Fault tolerance for space, including system level mitigations — Larry Bergman POC.
- Trust for space — Heather Quinn and Laney Kidd, POCs.
- Architecture for space — Erik DeBenedictis and Terry Cooney, POCs.
- Flight qualification, testing, and experimental validation — Larry Bergman, POC.
The conference has a capacity for up to about another four 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 workshop 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 conjunciton with the workshop.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We are charging a $155 registration fee to all attendees. This fee has been set to cover the cost of food due principally to gifting regulations pertaining to government participants. Register at the Sandia Webpay website at https://cfwebprod.sandia.gov/cfdocs/ccpwa/ and selecting “Fault-Tolerant Spaceborne Computing Using New Technologies 2011” as the event name.
The workshop will include information at various levels of senstitivity.
- Some sessions on the schedule will indicate the information is sensitive (i. e. export controlled and proprietary). Attendees not eligible to receive specific information will be asked to leave the meeting room as needed.
- There will be Government session that may be attended by only Government, FFRDC, and SETA employees.
- While the entire workshop is by invitation only, there may be additional invitation-only sessions not posted on the Internet.
Foreign nationals will require a badge to enter DOE facilities. Foreign nationals should contact the conference sponsors immediately about a badge and should plan on stopping at the Sandia badge office about 1/2 mile away before first entering DOE premises.
The associated hotel is is the Sheraton at Menaul and Lousiana. Please go to this website: http://www.starwoodmeeting.com/StarGroupsWeb/res?id=1104149734&key=AA80E or Call the Sheraton directly 505-881-0000. Group name “SNL Spaceborne Computing Workshop.” Rate: $81 per night.
The workshop will be held at several locations:
- We expect all evening activities to be at a hotel in the uptown area of Albuquerque.
- Except as noted above, open portions of the workshop will be held at Sandia’s Computer Science Research Institute (CSRI) building on 1450 Innovation Parkway, Albuquerque, NM 87123 (map below). This facility is outside of Kirtland Air Force Base; visitors please do not try to enter Kirtland Air Force Base as you will probably not succeed and it will cause quite a delay. US Citizens may go directly to the CSRI building; foreign nationals will need to make arrangements for a badge and then go to the badge office.
- Closed portions of the workshop will be held in other buildings at Sandia; meet at the CSRI building for directions.
