STSC Alumni on the Net
For many years, I maintained a list of STSC Alumni and their email (no, not 666 BOX) addresses.
But the email addresses were often harvested by spammers, so I have reluctantly removed it.
In July of 2008 I created an STSC Alumni group on LinkedIn, which is a sort of Facebook for professional people.
Join LinkedIn and then join the STSC Alumni group.

A consolidated version of presentations made at the APL2000 Conferences from 2003 through 2006,
