Issue 4 - October/November 2008

From the Editor

Your Newsletter this month is little later than usual, as we decided to "hold the presses" until after ITC, so we could include news from the Conference.

Also, with the festive period looming large we'll merge December/January into a single mailing in the New Year.

To change your mailing preferences, scroll to the bottom of this newsletter to find links.

Any comments on this newsletter can be mailed to admin@sjtag.org.

Change of Officers

Due to unfortunate circumstances, the group suddenly found itself in the position of having to make new appointments for the roles of Chair and Vice-chair.

Following elections held on November 10th, the group is pleased to announce that with immediate effect that the positions of Chair and Vice-chair will be filled by Ian McIntosh and Heiko Ehrenberg respectively. Please offer them your support as we take SJTAG forward.

Feedback from ITC 2008

Brad reports that attendance at ITC this year was clearly down compared to previous years, and that content seemed to be tending more towards device test rather that system test.

In light of this, it is pleasing to note that our Poster Session on the Wednesday afternoon was well attended: Despite the "Cheese and Wine" surroundings, Brad was kept so busy that he was forced to forego the luxury of eating. Adam stepped up to the plate, however, and at least ensured that Brad received essential liquid refreshment!

Room booking conflicts meant that the Fringe Meeting couldn't run for the two hours originally scheduled. However, the guests at the meeting provided some interesting and useful observations, proving once again the immense value that comes from having participants from a diversity of backgrounds. The minutes are yet to be published, but will shortly be available using the link below.
