The 2004 IEEE Aerospace Conference was the 25th in a series of one-week long winter conference designed for aerospace experts, academia, military personnel and industry leaders in a stimulating and thought-provoking environment. The Conference promotes interdiscip- linary understanding of aerospace systems, their underlying science and technology, and their applications to government and commercial endeavors. Attend-ants enjoyed exceptional access to authors and invited speakers in a unique setting, with fertile ground for developing lasting relationships benefiting partici-pants, their organizations, and the engineering, scientific, and aerospace communities far beyond the Conference. Papers were peer reviewed and typically provided the technical depth characteristic of journal articles.
The Conference was held at the Big Sky Conference Hall, Big Sky, Montana, USA, on 6-13 March 2004. There were more than 450 research papers presented in this Conference. The authors came from well-known institutes such as NASA, US Air Force, Naval Research Laboratory, CalTech, MIT, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University, University of Southern California, Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, Aerospace Corp., Boeing Co., etc.
With full grant from Assumption University, five research papers from S&T Faculty were accepted for presentation at this Conference. They were:
(i) "An Agent Architecture for Competitive Application Environment" by Supannika Koolmanojwong, Rachsuda Jiamthapthaksin and Jirapun Daengdej of the Autonomous System Research Laboratory,
(ii) "Uninterrupted Learning Agent Using Finite State Machine" by Tapanan Yeophantong and Peerapol Moemeng of the Autonomous System Research Laboratory,
(iii) "Fuzzy Rule-based Processes Scheduling for FPGA-Based System" by Thanachai Thumthawatworn, Kamolchol Jitwongtrakul, Ronnarit Chier-silp and Pratit Santiprabhob of the Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory,
(iv) "Adaptive Fuzzy Rule-based Processes Scheduling in Distri-buted Computing Environment" by Jongkon Sirichuenwichit, Thanachai Thumthawatworn and Pratit Santiprabhob of the Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory, and
(v) "Method for Cluster Heads Selection in Wireless Sensor Networks" by Piyakul Tillapart, Thanachai Thumtha-watworn, Pitiporn Pakdeepinit, Tapanan Yeophantong, Suparwat Charoen- vikrom and Jirapun Daengdej of the St. Gabriel's Telecommuni-cations Laboratory.
