June 24 - August 23, 2024


We are proud to have the following sponsors for RIPS2024:

 Aerospace Corporation

The Aerospace Corporation has provided independent technical and scientific research, development, and advisory services to national-security space programs since 1960. We operate a federally funded research and development center for the United States Air Force and the National Reconnaissance Office and support all national-security space programs. We also apply more than 40 years of experience with space systems to projects for civil agencies like NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, commercial companies, universities, and some international organizations in the national interest. Our highly skilled technical people have focused on ensuring the success of every mission and developing the most effective and economic space-related hardware and software in the world. Our insight and involvement in space programs has significantly reduced the risk of launch failure and increased both satellite endurance and performance. Our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities are staffed by some of the leading scientists in the world.

 Air Force Research Laboratory

The Air Force Research Laboratory is a global technical enterprise, boasting some of the best and brightest leaders in the world. We are Revolutionary, Relevant, and Responsive to the Warfighter. We defend America by unleashing the unconquerable power of scientific and technical innovation. Our mission is leading the discovery, development, and integration of affordable warfighting technologies for our air, space, and cyberspace force.


AMD designs and integrates technology that powers millions of intelligent devices, including personal computers, game consoles and cloud servers that define the new era of surround computing.

Analog Devices

Analog Devices, Inc. is a global semiconductor leader that bridges the physical and digital worlds to enable breakthroughs at the Intelligent Edge. ADI combines analog, digital, and software technologies into solutions that help drive advancements in digitized factories, mobility, and digital healthcare, combat climate change, and reliably connect humans and the world.

 Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a mission of strengthening the United States’ security through development and application of world-class science and technology to enhance the nation’s defense, reduce the global threat from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, and respond with vision, quality, integrity and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance.

NASA Ames Research Center

NASA’s Ames Research Center, one of ten NASA field centers, is located in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley. Since 1939, Ames has led NASA in conducting world-class research and development in aeronautics, exploration technology and science aligned with the center’s core capabilities.

 NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Goddard is NASA’s premiere space flight complex and home to the nation’s largest organization of scientists, engineers, and technologists who build spacecraft, instruments, and new technology to study Earth, the Sun, our solar system, and the universe.

Relay Therapeutics

Relay Therapeutics is a clinical-stage precision medicine company that sits at the intersection of computational and experimental technologies. Relay is focused on making small molecule medicines against precision medicine targets with our objective being to make the discovery of medicine both more efficient and effective. Relay Therapeutics was built upon unparalleled insights into protein motion and how this dynamic behavior relates to protein function. These insights are driven by Relay’s Dynamo platform, which integrates an array of leading-edge experimental and computational approaches and enables the company to effectively drug protein targets that have previously been intractable or inadequately addressed.


SimCorp is a company that continuously innovate to create an industry-leading integrated investment management platform. It has recently merged with Axioma by integrating Axioma’s best-in-class asset class coverage, premier risk management, and portfolio construction and optimization tools.
