My worst fears from when I joined the Smart Grid effort are being realized. In the past I had little trouble with scheduling conflicts despite being on the BACnet committee, its various working groups and summits, the BACnet Test Labs working group, BIG-EU and its working groups, and ISO/TC205/WG3, because they are all aligned around BACnet and tend to avoid conflicting meetings and teleconferences.

Not so with the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), the Smart Grid Architecture Committee (SGAC) and the Energy Information Standards Alliance (EIS Alliance), all of which come with their own meetings and teleconferences. Avoiding each other, they're landing right on top of a number of BACnet events.

Oh well. This is probably happening to a lot of folks involved in the Smart Grid effort. I'll just have to pick & choose.
