Subject: [802SEC] Ethernet 40th Celebration


Dear EC Members,

On Monday, November 11, the IEEE 802 will be hosting the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Ethernet.  The event take place  between 7 to 9PM  in the Landmark B Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Reunion in Dallas, TX.


The evening will include a keynote address by Ethernet inventor and 3Com founder, Dr. Robert Metcalfe. Dr. Metcalfe will share his thoughts on this milestone occasion with us and then join Ethernet co-inventor Dr. David Boggs, co-founder Ron Crane of 3Com, Thomas Hogenmüller of Robert Bosch GmbH, and panel moderator Steve Carlson to discuss how the lessons from Ethernet's past can be applied to its future in new application areas such as vehicular Ethernet.


Refreshments will be provided afterwards.


I hope to see all of you there to celebrate 40 years of Ethernet innovation.  Please forward this message onto the members of your respective working groups.


The  event is open to the public. Please feel free to share this invite with any colleagues in the greater Dallas area about this.




John D’Ambrosia

Recording Secretary, IEEE 802 LMSC
