  • DSC Division General meeting at 2020 ACC at 7:00 pm (US Mountain Time)

    Dear DSC Division Members,

    I hope this email finds you and your family well during these uncertain times. While it is unfortunate we cannot all meet in Denver this year, I am happy that we will still be able to hold the Division meeting, albeit virtually. The meeting starts at 7:00 pm mountain time on Wednesday, July 1st. The agenda with Zoom link is attached. I want to call your attention to the change in meeting format this year. While people will still submit reports regarding conference activities, journal activities, committee activities, etc., which will be made available to the entire membership, after a brief introduction and update from NSF the entire meeting will be devoted to a discussion of the Division going forward. Even before the pandemic the way technical societies communicate had been radically changing, from changes in conference and journals, to the way we stay in touch. This year Kam Leang and Santosh Devasia will lead a discussion on this topic. We want your input and your ideas on how to improve the Division’s activities going forward. Please join us on Wednesday evening for what promises to be a lively discussion.

    Best Regards,


    Robert Landers
