      The paper submission deadline for the 2002 NASA/DoD
      Conference on Evolvable Hardware (EH-2002) has
      been extended to March 15, 2002.


      2002 NASA/DoD Conference on Evolvable Hardware

      July 15 - 18, 2002
      Washington DC, USA

      Tentative Location:
      Holiday Inn Select, Old Town Alexandria, VA

      Sponsored by:

      National Aeronautics and Space Administration
      Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)

      Supported by:

      Center for Integrated Space Microsystems (CISM,
      Life Detection Science and Technology ( LDST ,
      NASA Ames Information Sciences and Technology
      Directorate (NASA Ames)
      NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA Goddard)

      Hosted by:

      NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA Goddard)

      The 2002 NASA/DoD Conference on Evolvable Hardware
      (EH-2002) will be hosted by NASA
      Goddard Space Flight Center in Washington DC area. The
      Conference builds upon the tradition of
      the successful series of NASA/DoD Workshops on
      Evolvable Hardware (the first Workshop hosted
      by JPL in Pasadena, 1999; the second Workshop hosted
      by NASA Ames in Palo Alto, 2000; and
      the third Workshop hosted by JPL in Long Beach in
      2001). Evolvable Hardware is an emerging field
      that applies evolution to automate design and
      adaptation of physical reconfigurable and morphable
      structures such as electronic systems, antennas, MEMS
      and robots. The purpose of this conference
      is to bring together leading researchers from the
      evolvable hardware community, representatives of
      the automated design and programmable/reconfigurable
      hardware communities, technology
      developers and end-users from the aerospace, military
      and commercial sectors.

      Evolvable hardware techniques enable
      self-reconfigurability, adaptability and learning by
      programmable devices and thus have the potential to
      significantly increase the functionality of
      deployable hardware systems. Evolvable Hardware is
      expected to have major impact on deployable
      systems for space systems and defense applications
      that need to survive and perform at optimal
      functionality during long duration in unknown, harsh
      and/or changing environments. It is also expected
      to greatly enhance the capability of systems that need
      modification, upgrade and learning without
      interrupting their operation.

      The focus of this year's conference will be evolvable
      hardware for safer systems. Safety aspects
      range from reliable and survivable NASA/DoD systems
      operating in extreme environments to
      intelligent adaptive and learning systems for
      protection of areas and security of communications.

      Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

      Evolutionary hardware design
      Co-evolution of hybrid systems, such as wetware,
      chemical, mechanical,and electronic
      components, etc.
      Intrinsic and on-line evolution
      Hardware/software co-evolution
      Self-repairing and fault tolerant hardware
      Embryonic hardware
      Novel devices, testbeds and tools supporting
      evolvable hardware
      Adaptive computing and adaptive hardware
      Real-world applications of evolvable hardware.
      Examples of new topics of interest in the light
      of this year's theme are:
      Security and watermarking of digital data
      Detection and identification of biological
      agents and extraterrestrial
      Ultra-safe systems
      Internet security


      Prospective authors are invited to submit the
      electronic version of their full paper (ie PS, PDF,
      MSWord) by email to eh-2002@... . The
      paper is limited to 10 pages and should be
      submitted in single-spaced, 10 point type on a 8.5" X
      11" or equivalent paper with 1" margins on all
      sides. Each submission should contain the following
      items: (1) title of paper, (2) author name(s), (3)
      first author physical address, (4) first author e-mail
      address, (5) first author phone number, (6) a
      maximum 200 words abstract (7) the text of the paper,
      and (8) references. Accepted papers will be
      published in the conference proceedings; details on
      the publication including the style for the
      camera-ready paper will be posted later at the
      conference web site

      The conference will maintain its single-track format,
      however tutorials and posters sessions will be
      held and more panel discussions will be included. Each
      research group is invited to prepare a poster
      describing their research. A one-page abstract of the
      poster should be submitted following the same
      procedures as the paper.
