*** THANK YOU ***
Thank you to everyone who contributed to an amazing SCC 2021! Our authors and presenters, the captivating keynote speakers, corporate sponsors, the IEEE Computer Society, and the attendees combined to make this an informative and engaging virtual event. A reminder that the content will remain on the conference platform until 23 November. You can still register and gain access to the content if you missed the event. We look forward to coming together for the next instantiation of the Space Computing Conference. Check this web site for updates as the date and venue are determined. Please join the SCC listserv at https://mailman.baylor.edu/mailman/listinfo/spacecomputing-info to get important e-mail announcements related to the conference.

The safety of all conference participants is our top priority. SCC 2021 was held as a fully virtual event and we look forward to gathering in person next time.


Since 2006, the Space Computing Conference has gathered engineers, scientists, and computer architects with the objective of advancing the computational capability and reliability of spaceborne systems. The conference will emphasize current and emerging technologies in radiation-tolerant component technologies, processors, memory devices, space-qualifiable packaging technologies, highly-reliable & low-power electronics, avionics systems, etc. The conference aims to cover computing devices and systems for CubeSats up to “Flagship” missions.

The conference was held August 23rd to the 26th, 2021 online in a fully virtual format.
