The same sentiments apply to a lot of the conferences managed by the IEEE - where elese are you going to get such a concentrated bunch of engineers, researchers and scientists who are sharing with you the next 5 - 10 year developments in the semiconductor industry?

Adam,

Are you going to DesignCon? 2015 will be my fifth. I'm moderating two panels again this year. I start looking forward to DesignCon around October.

I couldn't possibly get to everything that I'd like to see at DesignCon. For starters, two of my Wednesday (Jan 28) panelists are presenting tutorials at the same time on Jan. 27. What to do? I'll probably plit the difference.

Wednesday and Thursday (Jan 28 and 29) are crazy because the exhibits are open and every test & measurement company wants an appointment. But, my two panels also run while the exhibits are open. That means I don't get to see technical sessions that run during exhibit hours. Fortunately, the exhibits don't open until noon so I can get to some morning sessions. But even then, there are often 2-3 sessions running concurrently that I'd like to attend.

See EDN's T&M DesignCenter and DesignCon Central for more.

So why is the online registration not working...

Since you were all talking about ECS Boston, I decided to pop over to the site and see what was up there. So far no conference schedule and the online registration doesn't work. This is not encouraging especially since the super early bird pricing ends in a week...

I might be tempted to think that it's a conspiricy to prevent anyone form taking advantge of the super early bird price....

Of course, it's also likely that my project schedul will be such that I might not be able to go anyway... I had visions of using your post to help convince my supervisor but I think he's also going to want to see specific sessions that I want to attend.

Adam, I look forward to meeting you at #ESCBOS. As for Max, we haven't yet decided if he's worthy of entry.
