Subject: Participation at the DoD Annual Software Technology Conference

Dear Colleagues -

The annual Software Technology Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah is the
premier conference for software engineering. Every year, it attracts almost
participants from the defense community. The STC 2000 conference will be
held 30
April through 4 May 2000.

This year, SESC has decided to organize its sponsored track with a bit
scope than in previous years. Originally, we had intended to deal with
software engineering "best practices" but decided to expand the track to
deal with IEEE's "best technologies". Therefore, we desire  participation
CS sponsors who deal with software-related technologies. Our preliminary
includes the following sponsors:

   - Internet Best Practices
   - 802
   - PASC
   - SISC
   - Distance Learning

I have attached a copy of our draft track proposal, for your information.

(See attached file: IEEE Computer Society STC 2000 Summary.doc)

We are hoping that each of you would commit to provide a representative to
a presentation (roughly one-half hour) during this broader-focused IEEE CS
track. We would also like your representatives to spend some time in a
Society booth describing the work that they are doing. We think that it
would be
a good opportunity for them to promote your standards to the defense
and to seek wider participation.

We need your responses quickly.  Our track line-up is due to the conference
organizers by COB Friday, October 8.
