    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.

    Editor: Paul Wesling IEEE GRID PO Box 2110 Cupertino CA 95015-2110 Tel: 408 331-0114 / 510 500-0106 / 415 367-7323 Fax: 408 904-6997 Email: edi tor@e-gr

    From the Editor … I ’ve heard engineers say that there are just

    too many conferences in their special t ies. And wi th the economic downturn hi t t ing travel budgets, i t ’s very di f f icul t to travel to more than one conference or symposium each year.

    But that ’s not a problem for our local engineers and managers here in the SF Bay Area – we have our choice of many leading- edge topical conferences, wi th no need for a irplane t ravel , hotel rooms, etc. Most major conferences come to S.F., San Jose, or Santa Clara at least once every few years – what a great advantage we have.

    So, keep an eye on our GRID Conference Calendar – in the e-GRID every two weeks, on the cover of this GRID.pdf, in our Google Calendar, or in the banner ads on our website. You should spot one that wi l l advance your career, or prepare you for that next project!

    How to save more money? Submit a paper to that conference next year that covers your interests. Speakers usual ly get a substant ial d iscount on registrat ion fees!


    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:
