From the Chair

This year, for the first time since the initiative group was formed, SJTAG had no presence at ITC. This was largely a reflection of the difficult times that much of our industry has found itself in, with many of our members subject to restrictions on travel and conference attendance.

Reports from ITC indicate that general attendance at the conference was once again down, although business on trade stands seemed to be encouraging.

We can only hope that the predicted economic recovery continues and that we will have some significant news for ITC 2010.


SJTAG White Paper

The revision of our White Paper reached a significant point during October when we declared Volume 2, our description of the SJTAG Use Cases, as "Stable".

This means that we have both Volume 1 and Volume 2 now available as reference sources, and work has begun on Volume 3 - Hardware Architectures. This volume is proving to be more challenging than we had originally perceived, largely through some of the insights gained while working on Volume 2: It's not as simple as providing an advisory guide on "best practice"!

2009 Survey

Most of the recipients of this newsletter should by now have received invitation to take part in our 2009 survey, which was launched early in November and will run until Christmas.

At some point soon, we will be sending out reminders to anyone who has not yet completed the survey, so if you're one of those, then please try to set aside some time to do this.

We know the survey form may look a little daunting, but please remember that we do not expect everyone to be able to provide answers to all the questions: The survey is aimed at gathering information from several different "types" of user, so if you don't feel comfortable with a question, then we'd prefer that you skip it, rather than guess at an answer.

If you haven't recieved a survey invitation and would like to take part, then simply follow the link below this article.

SJTAG Forums - Session timeouts (Issued: Tue, 15 Sep 2009 19:09:00 GMT)

If you use our forums, please bear in mind that to prevent abuse, there is a session timeout, after which you are required to log-in again. The default in the forum software is one hour, but as we often work on forum posts in the background of other work, this has been adjusted to two hours.
