Sensors Applications Symposium 2006

7-9 February, 2006
Houston Marriott West Loop by the Galleria, Houston, Texas

Our hearts go out to the people and the city of New Orleans and the entire Gulf coast area affected by the tragedies of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. As New Orleans recovers and rebuilds from this disaster, the conference organizers have decided to move the conference to Houston, Texas. We are confident you will enjoy the Galleria district of Houston as the new venue for SAS 2006.

SAS 2006 Travel Grants for ISHM Education

Integrated System Health Management (ISHM) is  an important new area of development that combines a number of technologies including--but not limited to--smart sensors, health detection, database, data fusion, networking, and visualization. Authors who are submitting an extended abstract in SAS 2006 have a unique opportunity for participation in a workshop exploring future directions for ISHM education. The workshop session will explore ideas for incorporating ISHM into university curricula. Through the sponsorship of NASA-Stennis Space Center, a number of $1,000 travel grants are available to participants in the ISHM education forum. To apply, please forward a 1-page position paper of your ISHM education strategy to Lee Myers. Include "ISHM Education Travel Grant" in the subject line.
