It’s a long one this year! I’ve already written about how disappointed I was to miss out on the Content Convergence event in Vancouver and the WritersUA event in Seattle. Looks like I’m going to miss the IEEE RFID conference in Las Vegas and DocTrain West (Vancouver again!) as well. I’m also going to miss out on the IEEE MTT microwave conference – this is the biggie, with attendance measured in the tens of thousands. I hope to go next year, maybe even conduct a short course for them.
But then, boy! I will be THERE at two events. First up is STC Summit in Philadelphia. I’m still trying to work out the details here, but I really don’t want to miss this one! I’ve been to almost every STC annual conference since Minneapolis in 1994, and credit these events with the contacts and visibility that have helped me get to where I am today in the tc field.
I’ll also be speaking at the IEEE PCS conference (IPCC 2008) in Montreal. This is more intimate than STC and somewhat more academically-oriented, but always fun.
It’s tough this year because of other commitments – my daughter is graduating from high school (Congratulations, Heidi!) and I’m heading back East for my own 30-year high school reunion.
With all this going on, it’s also important not to forget about the upcoming Fall conference season! I’m working now on proposals for both DocTrain East in Boston and LavaCon in Hawaii.
