The CSP Execom Meeting
Although I am on sabbatical leave (see "Sabbatical Leave", 6/28/07) I am still actively involved in several professional and service organizations. One of them is the Computing Society of the Philippines (http://www.csp.org.ph) or CSP. I was the president of CSP for 3 years (from early 2004 to early 2007). During the elections of CSP officers held during the 7th Philippine Computing Science Congress (PCSC 2008), the annual scientific convention of the CSP, at the Boracay Regency Resort and Convention Center, in the famous island of Boracay, Philippines, I gave up the CSP presidency and I accepted the position of CSP treasurer. Hence, I am still in the CSP Executive Committee, composed the president (Jimmy or Dr. Jaime Caro of the University of the Philippines), the vice-president (Caslon or Dr. Caslon Chua of De La Salle University), the secretary (Henri or Dr. Henri Adorna fo the University of the Philippines-Diliman), and myself (Raffy or Dr. Rafael Saldana of Ateneo de Manila University).

1. PCSC 2008 (8th Philippine Computing Science Congress)
2. ICMSB 2008 (10th International Conference on Molecular Systems Biology)

4. ACM Philippine National Intercollegiate Programming Competition
