      The international Electric Drive Transportation Association
      <http://www.electricdrive.org/> is holding its North American Conference &
      Exposition 2005 in Vancouver , British Columbia on Tues-Thurs, December
      6-8. This is the first year that plug-in hybrids are centrally included in
      the actual event, rather than being a "related workshop" the day before
      (details below). It's a great opportunity to hear and meet many of the
      people most involved with PHEVs. I'll be there from mid-day Dec 7 through
      Dec. 8, speaking on the 8th.

      The entire event is worth attending. The concluding speaker is Barry
      Penner, Premier of British Columbia. You can see the program from links at

      At <http://www.edtaconference.com> you can see the sponsor list and
      exhibitor list (both also reproduced at the end of this email). CalCars
      material will be available at the booth of Electro Energy (we explain our
      joint project to evaluate industry-standard NiMH batteries for PHEVs at

      Here's the program for the Thursday, December 8 "Concurrent Learning"
