    IEEE GRID is the monthly newsmagazine of the San Francisco Bay Area Council of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. As a medium for news for technologists, managers and professors, the editorial objectives of IEEE GRID are to inform readers of newsworthy IEEE activities sponsored by local IEEE units (Chapters, Affinity Groups) taking place in and around the Bay Area; to publicize locally sponsored conferences and seminars; to publish paid advertising for conferences, workshops, symposia and classes coming to the Bay Area; and advertise services provided by local firms and entrepreneurs. IEEE GRID is published as the GRID Online Edition

    residing at, in a handy printable GRID.pdf edition at the end of each month, and also as the e-GRID sent by email twice each month to more than 24,000 Bay Area members and other professionals.

    From the Editor

    This is the age of social interaction through the internet. Many of us engineers now keep in touch with other professionals through LinkedIn, track activities in Google Calendar or Facebook, and use our Smart Phones for many other activities.

    So, it makes sense for the GRID – and our SF Bay Area IEEE activities – to migrate to apps. After spending some months studying the characteristics that make many of the popular apps useful and user- friendly, I’m now starting the specs for an e-GRID app – two, actually, for iPhone and Android. As I envision them, they’ll let you choose to scan all upcoming chapter meetings – or only those in one or more of our 11 Categories. You can enter keywords that best characterize your interests, so that the app will show you all complying meetings. Once you find one of interest, you can add it to your Calendar, with reminders so you don’t miss it. And you’ll be able to forward meeting announcements to your friends, so they can also attend.

    My intention is to implement these in HTML5, CSS and Javascript – so that the resultant code can then be compiled into an iPhone app, an Android app, and perhaps other targeted systems. This will give us the best multi-platform capability and updateability going forward.

    Now for the appeal: If you’ve implemented apps before, and would be available to assist me (such as doing the actual coding), I’d like to hear from you. The SFBAC officers have authorized me to offer to cover your basic dues for the next year, as a reward (and you’ll gain recognition as the programmer for the app). Please give me a call or send an email if you can help!

    Best regards,


    NOTE: This PDF version of the IEEE GRID – the GRID.pdf – is a monthly publication and is issued a few days before the first of the month. It is not updated after that. Please refer to the Online edition and Interactive Calendar for the latest information:
