      Dear Colleague,

      Please find attached the call for papers for
      the 1st Conference on Adaptive Hardware and
      Systems (AHS'2006). The conference will be sponsored
      by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
      European Space Agency (ESA) (To be confirmed) and
      Technical Research Council of Turkey.

      1st Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems
      June 16- 18, 2006
      Hilton Istanbul, Turkey

      Call For Papers

      Sponsored by:

      National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
      European Space Agency (ESA) (To be confirmed)
      Technical Research Council of Turkey (Tubitak)

      Technical Co-Sponsor:

      IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (IEEE, CAS) (To be

      Supported by:

      Life Detection Science and Technology, JPL ( LDST,
      University of Edinburgh, UK
      Institute for System Level Integration, (ISLI), UK
      European Centre for Secure Information and Systems
      Spiral Gateway Ltd., UK

      Bahçeşehir University, Turkey

      Hosted by:

      Bahçeşehir University, Turkey



      The First Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems
      (AHS'2006) will be held June 16-18, 2006, in Istanbul,
      Turkey, immediately following the IEEE Conference on
      Communications (June 11-15) . The purpose of this
      conference is to bring together leading researchers
      from the adaptive hardware and systems community to
      exchange experiences and share new ideas in the field.

      Adaptation reflects the capability of a system to
      maintain, or improve its performance in the context of
      internal or external changes, such as uncertainties
      and variations during fabrication, faults and
      degradations, modifications in the operational
      environment, incidental or intentional interference,
      different users and preferences, modifications of
      standards and requirements, trade-offs between
      performance and resources, etc.

      Adaptation at hardware levels increases the system
      capabilities beyond what is possible with
      software-only solutions, and a large number of
      adaptation features employing both analog and digital
      adjustments are becoming increasingly present in the
      most elementary system components. Algorithms,
      techniques, and their implementation in hardware are
      developed over a diverse variety of applications, such
      as adaptive communications (adapting to changing
      environment and interferences), reconfigurable systems
      on a chip and portable wireless devices (adapting to
      power limitations) or survivable spacecraft (adapting
      to extreme environments and mission unknowns).

      This meeting will provide a forum for discussion on
      the generic techniques of adaptive hardware and
      systems, with a focus on communications and space
      applications, with view to its expansion and
      exploitation in other applications such as consumer,
      medical, defense and security, etc. Topics to be
      covered include, but are not limited to:

      Built-in tunable structures and automated tuning
      Built-in self-test and self-repair
      On-chip learning and adaptation
      Adaptive circuits and configurable IP cores
