Visitor Parking: Campus visitors may park in any commuter (unreserved) stall on campus with a daily or weekly permit. Permits are required in all campus lots between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Visitor permits are available at automated pay stations at the following locations: Structure #1 (on Wilson Avenue, on the 400 block) .
After Hours Event (PLEASE RSVP): We will have a Meet and Greet Event at El Portal Restaurant on the evening of Day-1, Tuesday December 10th at 6:30PM. The Restaurant is located at 695 E. Green Street Pasadena, CA 91101. Phone number is 626.795.8553
We would like everyone to attend this meet-and-greet event. The purpose of the workshop is to foster relationships within our community. Please make time in your schedule for this dinner event. An evite announcement will go out shortly. Please do not ignore it (it is hard enough coordinating all this). When you see the evite, please RSVP as soon as possible. There will be a nominal fee for the dinner, as goverment rules prevent sponsored dinners for many participants (i.e. you pay for your dinner).
* Workshop: December 10-12, 2013
* Acceptance Notification: Oct 21nd, 2013
* Abstract Deadline: Nov 4th, 2013
* First Call for Presentations: July 24th, 2013
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
* Model based software development
* Navigation, fault management, and command sequence control
* Onboard communication
* Space network protocols
* Onboard data processing
* Software modeling, simulation and testbeds
* Spacecraft software architectures
* Agile software development
* Flight processors and operating systems
* Planning, tasking and execution
* Systems engineering
* Software Verification and Validation
* Testing Technologies
* 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
