    Is this impacting the upcoming Sem Tech Biz conference in San Jose?

    Hi Andrew,

    The conference is only being impacted in that the dates and location will change from any previously announced. We will make a formal announcement shortly (including opening the CFP), but the conference will still be in San Jose this summer!
