2007 International Conference AnnouncementI am pleased to invite you to attend the 66th Annual International Conference for the Society of Allied Weight Engineers. The location of this year’s conference in Madrid is particularly important because it reflects the growing membership of our organization from locations outside the United States. We are truly an international organization and the Central European host chapter is our largest in terms of membership. The decision to select Madrid as a host city reflects the Society’s commitment to reflect our diverse and international membership. We anticipate many new attendees that will bring forth new and unique approaches to mass properties as well as vendors from parts of Europe that have never presented their products and capabilities.

We are first and foremost a technical organization. The Vice President/Technical Director and Government Industry Chairman will lead a committee that will provide a professional forum for an exchange of technical papers, presentations and discussion. In addition, the Vice President/Training and his committee have put together training opportunities that will enhance and further the career paths of our membership.

Our conference will conclude on Wednesday May, 30 with an Awards Banquet where we honor those deserving members and chapters that have distinguished themselves by their dedicated service to the society. In addition, we announce the local area scholarship recipient and best paper award for the conference.

The Central European chapter has done a wonderful job organizing a conference that promises to be a new experience in terms of format, technical content and attendance. I look forward to seeing you in beautiful Madrid Spain.

The European Chapter of SAWE is proud to invite you to the 66th Annual SAWE International Conference on Mass Properties in Madrid (Spain). This historical city, with more that 5 million people, is the capital of Spanish Kingdom placed in the center of the Peninsula Ibérica at the South of Europe. This will bring you the possibility to know very interesting places travelling through Spain and Europe.

The International Conference will be held May 26-31,2007, at the Meliá Madrid Princesa Hotel. The location of the hotel in Princesa Street will permit you walking by the most emblematic places in Madrid downtown to enjoy the magnificent evening’s spring ambient in Madrid.

This year the International Conference is organized by the European Chapter outside from USA which represent for us an honor and, at same time, a big challenge to carry out a successfully Conference. Just from the beginning of our nomination, we wanted to get the success of the Conference looking around three axes: Technical, Social and Financial.

From a Technical point of view we are encouraging to the mass properties worldwide community to make Papers or Presentations. We think that we can offer to the attendance a good quantity and quality of Technical works.

From a Social point of view this Conference gives the opportunity to meet new members or colleagues and to know new companies linked to our professional activity. On the other hand, there are planned some events like a tour to Madrid city and surrounding, visit the “Monastery of El Escorial” build in XVI century during the reign of Philip II. Also there will be a day trip to the nearby cities of Segovia and Toledo where you can appreciate their monuments, art and history.

From a Financial point of view we have a big challenge to cover all the spending without an excessive charge to the attendees. This will be done looking for new sponsors, new exhibitors and minimizing costs.

We would like to thank to the SAWE officers the confidence and help received during these years of preparation to make the Conference a success.

We are aware of our big responsibility to organize this Conference, but we believe that putting together our effort and your participation, all of us will get our purpose: to make the conference a success.

We hope to see you in May in Madrid!
