2005 MAPLD International Conference

Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
Washington, D.C.

September 7-9, 2005

Session J. PLD Failures, Analyses, and the Impact on Systems


Session  J. will be in an informal workshop format, open to all MAPLD attendees.   The structure for this session will be a combination of talks and discussions in a small group setting.  Last year was the first time we had this workshop, it was literally standing room, so it will be back for 2005, this time in two 1.5 hour sessions.

Session J will held in the Amphitheater and consist of two segments:


Kay Jobe, Boeing
Session Chairs:
Kay Jobe, Boeing
Mark R. McLean, Department of Defense
