Call for Presentations:

We will continue the work started last meeting on the PAR and 5C. Also, I expect a some technical presentations and results from the Compatibility Matrix AdHoc. Presentations should be kept to 20 minutes in duration, excluding time for questions and answers. Requests for presentation time greater than 20 minutes will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and the requestor should contact the chair prior to making the request to justify the additional time.

Typically, the rules call for requests for presentation time be made two Fridays preceding the meeting. Since I am delinquent in making this call for presentations, I will place the burden on me to take late submissions and get files posted quickly.

For the July Plenary meeting, requests for presentation time must be made by next Sunday July 7, 2013, 11:59PM EDT.  Requests for presentation time shall be made to me at cmjones@xxxxxxxxx. Please e-mail a PDF (not the PowerPoint) version of the presentation to me by Friday of the week preceding the meeting. For the July Plenary, presentations must be submitted by July 12, 2013. I will make every effort to get files posted on Saturday so that they can be downloaded for review on the plane.

As a reminder, please make sure that all requests for presentations or submissions of presentation material have no restrictive notices at the bottom of the email.  All such emails will be refused and requests / presentations will not be acknowledged.

All individuals submitting presentations should review the Procedures for Presenters Page:
