The 2018 NASA/ESA Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems (AHS 2018) will be held August 6 - 9, 2018 at The University of Edinburgh, UK.
The AHS 2018 conference will bring together multi-disciplinary researchers from academia and industry and government specialists to communicate the latest research results, share experiences and discuss new applications. The conference has grown from the precursor NASA/DoD Conference on Evolvable Hardware, held between 1999 and 2005.
Adaptation occurs in all living systems and is a desired characteristic of most artificial systems. Adaptation reflects the capability of a system to maintain or improve its performance in the context of internal or external changes (such as uncertainty and variation during fabrication, faults and degradation in the field), changes in the operational environment, incidental or intentional interference, different users and preferences, modifications of standards and requirements, or trade-offs between performance requirements and available resources.
We are organizing special sessions on the following topics:
- Biomedical Sensors and Systems
- Emerging Security Technologies (EST)
- Intelligent Security Systems
- ESA's Special Session on "Emerging Reconfigurable Devices for Space Applications: Configuration, Mitigation Techniques, and Radiation Characterization"
- Extreme Environments and Nuclear Robotics
- Tools and Methods for Reconfigurable Computing
Authors should please visit EasyChair to submit papers.
- “Gerald Estrin Award” ($500) for the best paper on Reconfigurable/Adaptive Computing
- “Ismail Al-Jazari Award” ($500) for the best paper on Mechanical System and Robotics topic
- “Herman Oberth Award” ($500) for the best paper on an Aerospace System topic
