The next IEG meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 25, 2020;  the venue is NIST’s Gaithersburg campus.  Registration details to follow in February 2020; we anticipate no changes from the most recent meeting in registration and other logistical details

SUGGESTIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS for the agenda may be sent to IEG-II [at] (IEG-II[at]nist[dot]gov) .

07/10/2019: Thanks to participants in the June 27 2019 meeting

We had a very productive meeting on June 27.  Thanks to all who participated, particularly the speakers.

SUGGESTIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS for improvements in future meetings may be sent to IEG-II [at] (IEG-II[at]nist[dot]gov) .

06/24/2019:  IEG Meeting, June 2019 - Final Agenda

The final agenda for the upcoming meeting on Thursday 6/27/2019 is here.

03/31/2019:  Update to IEG Meeting Agenda

An updated agenda has been posted here and in the previous announcement .  We have two speakers who are still working on approvals for their presentations.  If anyone has any recommendations, we may have a slot open.  Please send recommendations to ieg-ii [at] (ieg-ii[at]nist[dot]gov) ;   a title, author list and brief abstract would be very helpful. 

Please register (registration is free) as soon as convenient – it makes our planning easier.  All attendees (including speakers) who are not NIST staff need to register to get credentials to come onto campus.

03/15/2019:   Next IEG Meeting Agenda and Registration

Registration is now open for the IEG Meeting to be held Thursday 27 June 2019 at NIST/Gaithersburg in the West Square meeting room adjacent to the cafeteria in the Administration Building, Building 101. 

The agenda for the meeting may be found here .  The current agenda is a draft, it will be updated by the end of March with additional details from the speakers and perhaps some reordering of the talks.  We do not expect major changes.  One of our speakers had to drop out, so we have an open slot.  Suggestions for a replacement are welcome – ieg-ii [at] (ieg-ii[at]nist[dot]gov) .

Follow this link to the registration page.  All attendees who are not NIST staff need to register (including speakers) in order to get credentials to come onto the NIST campus.  Please register even if you have a badge from another USG agency.  Registration is free and will provide you with credentials that will enable you to bypass the line at the Visitor Center – the credentials will make it easier for you and the Visitor Center staff.  Registration is open until June 20.   After June 20,  admission to the campus for this meeting will require personal intervention on the part of the meeting organizers – not impossible, but inconvenient.  It is better to register and be a no show than to call the day before for special handling.

Directions and instructions for arrival are on the registration page and will also be sent to you by email after registration.  Be sure to arrive with the identifying credentials discussed on the registration page and in the email you will receive.  We cannot get you on campus without them.

Free registration means that you will be on your own for refreshments and lunch.  The NIST cafeteria is adjacent to the meeting room and is open from 0730 to 1500.  They take cash and credit. 

You can arrive at the main NIST entrance as early as 0700.

If you have any difficulty registering, please use the help form on the registration page.  If that fails, send a note to ieg-ii [at] (ieg-ii[at]nist[dot]gov) .  You can send any questions about other details of the meeting to that address as well.

02/05/2019:  Next IEG Meeting remains Thursday, June 27, 2019

The recent shutdown delayed preparation of the meeting agenda.  We are still accepting suggestions for topics and authors.  If you wrote earlier and did not receive a reply, please write again (IEG-II [at] (IEG-II[at]nist[dot]gov) ) .  We hope to have the agenda ready by late March.

The shutdown also delayed the setup of the registration page.  We hope to have the registration page running in early March.
