- Prof Anjan Bose ran an IEEE DL workshop (two hours talk plus one hour round table discussion) on 'The Evolution of Control and Control Centres for the Smart Transmission Grid', 1-4pm, 24Nov 08 in Auckland, about 30 people attended the workshop. He also delivered the same talk (reduced to a one hour seminar) on 25 Nov 08 in Transpower Ltd, Wellington. The seminar attracted about 120 attendants so finally divided in two streams (9:30-10:30am and 12-1pm). Patrick was invited to accompany Prof Bose to Wellington to help organise the seminar and meet people there. The seminar was very well received and stimulated a lot of interests. Transpower sponsored both Prof Bose's and Patrick Hu's fights (Auckland-Wellington return) and accommodation.
