FWIW - if this is the case, this policy is in the disadvantage of the

doubles airfare costs and requires from us to at least one
weekend on the road. Having the IEEE and IETF meetings scheduled in
consecutive weeks is more convenient.
Let me second this - different meetings on adjacent dates are good
*if* they are geographically close and thus eliminate or reduce travel.
And this in independent of which country you are based in - adjacent
meetings in, say, Europe, reduce travel for North Americans, too.
(I do realize that this complicates the scheduling algorithm though.)
