Call for presentations; rough agenda

As usual, requests for presentation time are due by Wed, the 1st. PDF versions of the presentations should be uploaded to David Law (see Cc:) by the 1st. Be ready to download presentations from the web site on the fourth. I fully realize that everyone would like to be able to present to the entire committee. This isn't going to happen. If you have a presentation that spans the segments defined below, it should be divided into multiple presentations.
No, I don't expect the segmentation between groups to be simple to do. Yes, there is a great deal of overlap. No, we can't make much progress unless we figure out how to do this effectively. Yes, we have put it off much longer than we did in 1 Gig. No, we can't put it off any longer.

If the schedule is missed, time will be provided on a best-can-do effort following the completion of the regular agenda (or as deemed appropriate by the chair or sub-chair).

If the schedule is missed, the presenter will be allowed to present only if hard copies of the presentation are made available to the committee members at the beginning of the meeting during “document distribution” and a PDF, soft copy version of the presentation is made available to the “Web Master” prior to the beginning of the talk.
