    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

    Education is changing – especially for us working engineers! Did you read the TIME Magazine cover feature on these changes? The online version is posted here.

    New university partnerships (Coursera, EdX, Udacity) and formats (MOOCs, flipped classes) are fermenting and experimenting. Within a few years, many undergrad and graduate courses will be MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), open to tens of thousands – and learning/ comprehension will be significantly improved. For working engineers, though, the best news is that these courses will be funded by our companies, specifically for us to use. Here at last is a way for us to keep up with new technologies and tools, and to re-train for changes in careers that most of us experience.

    Watch the GRID over the next few months: our Education Chapter is now planning a series of meetings (and maybe a seminar) where these trends will be explored, and the methods will be demonstrated to you, for your evaluation and awareness. I think there’s a MOOC in your future!

    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.
