There will be an [ENVI and IDL User Group][registration] organized by Exelis VIS at this year's AGU:

> At the event you will:
>
> * See what’s new in ENVI and IDL and what’s coming down the road
> * Learn how you can access ENVI and IDL functionality in the cloud
> * Share feedback with us over complimentary food and drinks

The event is Wednesday December 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 at Jillian's San Francisco.

I will be presenting a poster right before the User Group meeting. Drop by if you are interested in using GPU's, accelerating curve fitting in IDL, or something else. The poster is IN33A-1529, "GPU accelerated curve fitting with IDL" and will be in Moscone South on Wednesday December 5 from 1:40-6 pm (I won't be there the whole time, will probably do my time at the beginning of the session). I also did some work with IN53C-1744, "A Python Geospatial Language Toolkit", on Friday December 7 at 1:40-6 pm, but I will be gone by that time.

Exelis VIS will be at booth #916. Tech-X will not have a booth this year, I'm focusing my energy on posters and individual meetings. If you are interested in getting together to talk, let me know!
