New regular meeting times for 2009

Trying to arrange a conference call where the participants are in a range of time zones is always a hard task, and is a problem that SJTAG has faced, with members in North America, Europe and Asia. Additionally, business and personal schedules influence the availability of individuals through the course of the day and week. Through 2008 we ran a schedule that was possibly a little "early" for most of North America, and cycled between Monday and Wednesday meetings.

Resignation of Brad Van Treuren

During October, restructuring within Alcatel-Lucent left Brad in a position where he no longer had the time and resources necessary to carry out the role of SJTAG chair effectively. Reluctantly, Brad felt that in the interests of the group he should make way for new leadership.

International Test Conference 2008 - Poster Session

This year, the SJTAG Working Group is presenting a Poster, rather than a full paper. "Posters" are a new feature at ITC for 2008, and offer a means to present an update where a full paper may not be justifiable.

Each poster presenter has the opportunity to make a 5-minute "teaser" presentation during session 19 of ITC (2:00pm-3:30pm on Wednesday 29th October). The main Poster Session then takes place later that evening (5:45pm-7:15pm) during the Octoberfest Reception.

We have produced some simple charts to illustrate some of the data we obtained from your submissions, and these are presented below. However, some of the best feedback was contained in the text comments some people supplied, but there's no easy way to represent that here, unfortunately.
