    1. SIGCOMM 2009 follow-up

    Jau gave a short report on SIGCOMM 2009. Overall, things went quite
    smoothly. Two areas for improvement: Internet access, and
    billing/accounting support. Bruce is investigating possible Cisco help
    with the Internet issue for next year. Dolors has provided information
    that should be helpful to future local arrangements chairs regarding
    billing and accounting.
