· Spaceborne computing architectures
· Onboard vehicle health diagnosis and repair
Conference attendees may also participate in an event being held in conjunction--the International Workshop on Planning and Scheduling for Space. This workshop, the sixth in an annual series, will focus on the challenges and opportunities the planning and scheduling community faces when addressing the needs of a wide range of space-based applications.
WHEN: Sunday through Thursday, July 19 through 23
