NASA's Sam Clanton to Speak in San Jose

Got questions about NASA's Linux-based spectrometer control system featured in Embedded Linux Journal? Ask Sam Clanton at SVLUG.

Sam Clanton of NASA's Ames Research Center will speak at the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, June 5, 2002. Sam's work in building an airborne embedded Linux spectrometer control system was featured on the cover of the March/April 2002 Embedded Linux Journal.

Sam is a researcher in Computational Sciences/Atmospheric Sciences at NASA Ames in Mountain View, California, where he is involved in a number of Linux-based projects. His current work is mainly in EEG pattern recognition and real-time data processing for brain-computer interface projects taking place at the NASA Ames Neuroengineering lab. Sam will talk about using Linux as a part of the research projects that he worked on at NASA and what he is up to inside and outside of the space agency.

Sam is currently serving a year-long stint at NASA Ames, before he begins work on an as-yet-unnamed technological development nonprofit he is cofounding in South America.

SVLUG will meet at Cisco Systems, Building 9. Maps and directions are available from the SVLUG web site. Attendees are encouraged to show up promptly at 7pm and bring their GPG keys for signing.
