Re: Call for presentations; rough agenda





All,

Further to Jonathan's e-mail you may have noticed that we provide a search tool
for the various areas of the 802.3 Web site. Now for Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files,
the search tool extracts certain elements from the PDF "Document Info" fields
and translates them into HTML tags. It is these tags that are used to locate
documents during searches.

I therefore request that in the future when PDF files are produced for placing
on the web site that the "Document Info." fields of the PDF file are completed
as follows. To do this is in you own interest as it will make it easier for
others to locate your presentation.

Title     :- Place the title of your presentation here
Subject   :- IEEE P802.3ae
Authors   :- Place the presentation authors here


Information on how to access this information is as follows:-

Adobe PDFWriter
===============
To enter this information if you are using Acrobat PDFWriter then when the 'Save
PDF File As' dialog appears hit the 'Edit Document Info.' button, enter the
information, and then hit 'OK' button.

Adobe Acrobat
=============
To access these fields from Adobe Acrobat either use the menu options:
'File' -> 'Document Info' -> 'General' or the shortcut CTRL-D


Thanks in advance,
   David Law

Subject:  Call for presentations; rough agenda




All,

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.
