Off to “Peachtree City”

Eric | November 10, 2008

imageDuring the next fee days I will be enjoying FSE in Atlanta, where for some weird reason everything is called Peachtree <whatever>. I guess that must be an American thing. In Canada they don’t do that: if you search for a “Maple Road” in Montreal, where do you land? Wisconsin! Point proven :-)

At FSE, I’ll be presenting our latest breed on static verification using tracematches. Who knows – maybe I’ll see you there?

  • Samstags dann: Tour durch das CNN Centre
  • Tour durch das Georgia Aquarium
  • Empfang und Dinner mit dem Chairman der Deutsch-Amerikanischen Handelskammer, Dr. Eike Jordan, im Capital City Country Club Brookhaven.
  • Sonntags: Besteigung des Stone Mountain auf eigene Faust

Trotz der erheblichen Flugverspätungen durch American Airlines in dieser Woche schafften es zum Glück fast alle Teilnehmer wohlbehalten nach Atlanta, so dass wir mit 32 Teilnehmern mit der bisher grössten Teilnehmerzahl aufwarten konnten.

Annual meeting of the RWTH NAAA in Atlanta

Eric | April 14, 2008

Last weekend I attended the annual meeting of the Association of Alumni, Friends, and Supporters of the RWTH Aachen University in North America, this time in Atlanta, Georgia. The meeting was organized by our local fellow Gerd Schroth. The organization was excellent, so thanks a lot for that!

imageWe visited the Hartsfield/Jackson Airport (Delta Airlines’ main hub), the Delta world headquarters and its Operation Control Centre and had a guided tour of some architectural highlights (including the Hyatt and Marriott Hotels which each have a gigantic atrium, and the Fox Theatre, which has a very unique style because it was once built for the Shriners).

 

 

image We finished up the first day with a fabulous German dinner at the Schroths’ place.

 

 

 

 

imageOn Saturday we visited the CNN world headquarters and the Georgia Aquarium. This night’s dinner took place at the Capital City Club Brookhaven.

 

 

 

 

image Rainer Schuhmann both stayed until Monday and so had enough time to climb Stone Mountain on Sunday afternoon. What a great view!

And all that for only rundabout 150$! Isn’t that a great deal? So if you are an RWTH Alumni and live in the U.S., Canada or Mexico next time there can be no excuse for not joining us ;-)
