Total success at ACCEDE 2022.

On 19 and 21 October we held the ACCEDE workshop on COTS components in Seville, organized by ALTER and ESA.

The workshop ACCEDE on COTS  intends to act as a forum for experts to share their experience and forecast based on facts and technical evidence. It was a complete success with 30 different countries and 300 registered attendees.

The welcome was provided by Antonio Muñoz, Mayor of Seville, Luis Gómez, our CEO of Alter, Britta Schade from ESA, and Manuel F. Rosa, from the University of Seville.

The development was very complete with 42 talks, 8 technical talks and 2 round tables, in which our colleagues took part: David Nuñez,  Eurospace “Overview of the COTS components selection in European Space Industry”. José Largaespada  “A Novel Integral Approach for COTS Procurement for Space.”, MOSFET commercial plastic components survey and its SEE behavior”. Katrina Elsey “A new and innovative approach to COTS radiation effects simulation”.Aintzane Lujambio PRECEDER: Prediction of the Electrical Behavior of Electronic Devices under Radiation”.

We are so grateful of our sponsors, SENER and MMC, without them this workshop could not have taken place and to the hosters Fundacion la Caixa and Sevilla.

We owe the success of ACCEDE to all the participants who attended and their magnificent talks and to all those who were present both in person and online. We are very glad and hope to see each other again this year.
