IEEE Smart Tech Metro Area Workshops: Huntsville
Posted on September 22, 2011 by Tommy McGuireThe two-day IEEE travelling Metro Area Workshop Series called IEEE Smart Tech is coming to Huntsville in November, the 4th and 5th. It looks like a pretty good deal: $99 for IEEE members, $179 for non-members (with a $20 discount for early registration) gets you breakfast and lunch both days, a Friday evening reception with hors d'oeuvres, plenary speakers (in Huntsville, Michael Griffen, former NASA Administrator), and two days of instruction at the scenic Von Braun Center. Oh, and two day-long courses in
- Wireless Communications Engineering: Current Practice,
- Introduction to Smart Grid, and
- Software Engineering Essentials.
I'll be going to the Software Engineering Essentials presentation; while I may not care much for Software Engineering as a field in itself, I do believe software engineering techniques are a wee-bit useful when programming professionally. I'm torn between Introduction to Smart Grid, which just sounds like fun, and Wireless Communications Engineering, which is somewhat close to my network-protocol-ish heart.
If you are in the Huntsville area around November 4th and 5th, or in Austin around October 21st, check it out.
