Plans are beginning for the 2017 CELUG Co-Located Conference at DAC. More information as we get closer, but mark your calendars for June 20 to June 22, 2017 in Austin!
All aboard! On Wednesday after the conference, we will board busses to take us to the shores of Lady Bird Lake where we will board The Lone Star Riverboat to take a cruise around Austin. The ship offers a covered lower deck with air conditioning and an uncovered upper deck for viewing the famous Austin bats on the Congress Street Bridge.
This is a great opportunity for you to network with the conference goers and go into more depth on topics you heard about during the day. The open atmosphere lets you engage many different people in an intimate atmosphere, without being stuck in the same seat all night as in a traditional sit-down dinner.
All attendees are invited. Dinner will be Texas Barbecue (brisket, chicken and sausage). Vegetarian options will be available. Beer and wine will be served.
For far too long, we have not had a real logo as an organization. I am excited to announce that we have worked with a graphic designer to create 4 logo exemplars. We asked for something simple, professional and that conveys stability. If you happen to like a particular design, but would like to see it in a different color, please use the comments section below to indicate the color you’d like.
Logo #1 — The Mountain
Nothing conveys stability better than the image of a mountain. I’ve always thought that Iron Mountain had some of the best branding out there, combining two tangibly solid images together, conveying to you that your data is absolutely safe. This logo evokes that theme, to indicate that the services we provide are “rock solid”. Also, as a “Game of Thrones” fan, I was somewhat tickled to be able to use that name.
Logo #2 — Understated
Most of us labor quietly and unobtrusively, typically shunning the limelight. Usually if we do find ourselves in the limelight, it’s not for positive reasons. In this entry, we emphasize the vital, yet quiet role we play in our organizations. And the organization is, literally, stated underneath the color emphasis in lower case letters. The epitome of understated.
Logo #3 — The Rock
A more playful entry, this one is an abstract. While we have reasonably defined roles and responsibilities, there are many times when we must adapt to changing conditions and stretch beyond our normal roles. The amorphous shape symbolizes our willingness to go “outside the box”, while the orange shape represents outside forces which act upon us.
Logo #4 — Logo, Interrupted
Many tasks that we perform come in as unplanned, critical work. The artistic accent of this logo falls in the middle of the name, representing how we are the force which contains chaos. We symbolically embrace the urgent interruptions, and literally keep everything together.
Voting begins immediately and goes through July 31, 2016. Make your voice heard on our logo!

Working session: Implementation of Machine Certification
- The EDA Consortium is exploring implementation of Machine Certification, a mechanism to limit unchecked HostID Duplication (and software piracy, intentional or unintentional). This working session will gather thoughts from CELUG members as well as suppliers on how this might be implemented and what the operational considerations of some proposals might be.
Workshop: Flexnet Manager Advanced Reporting
- Get a first look at new reporting functionality being released in FNMEA as Flexera brings in a reporting expert.
Come have a bite and a beverage at the Waller Creek Pub House, located within walking distance of the Convention Center. Waller Creek offers a great view of the Creek as well as inventive pub food and lots of local craft beers. We’ll get started at 7, though I’m sure if you want to go early they won’t turn you away.
