August is over and the conference circuit is getting back into full swing. Some of the noteworthy conferences that will be happening in the next few months include the UTC Smart Grid Workshop, Partners Healthcare 2009 Connected Health Symposium and Telco TV. We're planning to get to all of these, and we hope to see you there.
UTC Smart Grid Workshop
With the greatly increased money and focus on Smart Grid, the Utilities Telecom Council's (UTC) gathering in Atlanta on September 29-30, 2009 at the Hilton Atlanta Airport is a great place to get an update on the state of smart grid activities, including legislative and regulatory drivers, standards, technology, architecture and business cases.

Its focus is on moving Healthcare beyond the hospital and clinic and into the day-to-day lives of patients and consumers, and the roles that information technology can play in helping people manage chronic conditions, maintain health and wellness, and age with independence. The conference takes place at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, October 21-22, 2009( www.connected-health.org/events/symposium-2009.aspx )
