[10GMMF] Contributions for January Interim

Dear IEEE 802.3aq

The 10GBASE-LRM committee will meet at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, 655 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, V6C 2R7, Canada on Monday 24th, Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th of January 2005.  The full IEEE 802.3 meeting notice can be found at:

Please register and book your hotel room ASAP as the block room space usually gets booked up very quickly.

The goals for the January meeting are:

       To complete comment review of the draft D1.0.
       To consider contributions supporting changes per properly submitted comments to D1.0.
       To adopt the baseline draft with amendments agreed during the January meeting.
       To direct the editor to prepare draft D1.1 which must be complete (no TBD's) for task force review and associated comment resolution at the March 2005 Plenary meeting.
       To direct the editor/chair to forward draft D1.1 to IEEE 802.3 for preview in preparation for requesting Working Group ballot of the IEEE 802.3aq draft D1.2 specification at the March Plenary meeting of IEEE 802.3.

The task force will meet for three days at this meeting.  A 0900 hrs start on Monday 24th has also been requested.  It has also been requested that the meeting end by 1530 hrs on Wednesday 26th January to allow European attendees to fly home that evening.  To complete comment resolution it is likely that subgroups will form and meet during the evenings of the 24th and 25th of January.  It is expected that the editor will task these subgroups with proposing resolutions to comments.

To ensure enough time for comment resolution a maximum of 30 minutes will be allocated to any one presentation, including question time.  Therefore, only succinct presentations focused on issues with draft D1.0 or models used to develop the specification will be accepted on to the agenda.  The chair expects that every presentation will be in support of a planned motion, comment resolution or a proposed action of the group.

In order to develop a draft agenda, requests for presentation time should be sent to David Cunningham ( please include the following information:

        Name of presenter

        Title of presentation

        Length of time requested (this should include time for questions and answers)

        Brief description of topic

To relieve some of the tedium of comment resolution, comment resolution and presentation time will be intermixed throughout this meeting.   The editor and chair will group sets of presentations and comments.   During comment review, in support of their own comments, attendees can present at most two slides per comment. Supporting slides do not need to be submitted as presentations in advance of the meeting.

Presentation Procedure
For this meeting we will use the procedure developed by David Law
with the following amendments.  Submissions received after the deadline, Wednesday 20th January, will not be accepted for presentation at the meeting.  Also, amendments to submitted presentations will not be accepted for presentation or uploaded to the website.  These rules are being imposed to ensure a reasonable burden on the Web-Master and an efficient meeting.  Please plan and prepare your contributions accordingly.
Presenters please be sure to complete the PDF document information fields per the procedures for presenters, failure to do so may result in rejection of your presentation.
