"Ruth Wolfish, IEEE Client Services Manager, is organizing the first UK area
IEEE User Group meeting on Friday, November 16, 2007, at London South Bank
University at 103, Borough Road, London, SE1 0AA.
Our customers and interested information professionals will spend a day
with IEEE staff hearing about new features for 2008 - offering suggestions
on new developments prior to implementation, and networking with other IEEE
users. These meetings have taken place in North America in Michigan, N.
Carolina, Ontario, California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey and Maryland.
Attendees overwhelmingly liked having a voice in the future of IEEE Xplore,
and networking with other IEEE customers. As a global organization, IEEE
is committed to involving customers in Europe, Asia and Latin America as
well. Your organization has been selected to participate in this important
IEEE UK user group.
Plan to spend a full day with us (9:30 am to 4:30 pm), continental
breakfast and lunch will be provided. This is free of charge as IEEE
appreciates your input and spending the full day with us.
