More IT BOG Matters, Jan. 30, 2006
Dear BOG member,
I would like your input on three topics.
- Please let me know if you will attend the BOG meeting Feb. 14, 6 PM, in Punta del Este. Dinner will be served.
- I am preparing a preliminary agenda. Please send items that you would like to propose for the agenda.
- It is proposed that we approve Technical Co-Sponsorship of CISS 2007 at Johns
Hopkins in Baltimore. Please vote yes or no.
Background: As you will probably recall, last year we began to seek Technical Co-Sponsorship of conferences, such as CISS and Allerton, at which many of our members present information theoretic work. A principal benefit is that our co-sponsorship permits the conference proceedings to appear in IEEE Explore. This makes the conference more readily accessible, for example to our members, and the IT Society receives credit from IEEE for having added this content to IEEE Explore. We are currently a Technical Co-Sponsor of CISS 2006 in Princeton. It is hoped that this co-sponsorship will become a regular thing.
Best regards, Dave
