Re: [802.3_4PPOE] July 2014 Call for Presentations

Reminder that the deadline to request presentations is tomorrow. I’ve only had 6 requests for presentations. 

Adhoc chairs – you do not need to request a slot for an adhoc report. I assume that each one will have a report.

Subject: [802.3_4PPOE] July 2014 Call for Presentations


The IEEE 802.3bt 4-Pair Power over Ethernet Task Force will meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday July 15th, 16th and 17th, 2014 at the IEEE 802.3 Plenary Meeting in San Diego, CA. This is the call for presentations for that meeting. 

For those of you who have not participated in an 802.3 standards project before, here is a list of resources:

The 802.3 Ethernet Working Group Home Page:

The 4PPoE Task Force home page:

Operating Rules of IEEE Project 802.3 Ethernet Working Group:

IEEE 802.3 Patent policy:

There is a newcomer training presentation which gives and overview of the IEEE standards process at:

Call for Presentations:

The goal is to address technical issues resulting in adoption of baselines that will help form the draft. 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.

For the July Plenary meeting, requests for presentation time must be made by Friday June 27, 2014, 5PM AOE.  Requests for presentation time shall be made to me at cmjones@xxxxxxxxx. A PDF (not the PowerPoint) version of the presentation must be emailed to me by Monday July 7, 2014, 5PM AOE. The intent is for me to have time to review the presentations, set an agenda and get this all posted to the website by Thursday 7/9. The link to the Task Force page is above.

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.

As is typical with all these meetings, we are sharing time with PoDL and our time is variable based on their workload. I expect to have two days of meetings (half a day Tuesday and Thursday and  full day Wednesday) but it may slightly less. Therefore I will take presentations on a first come first served basis – if I receive what I consider to be too many presentations for our allotted time.  I WILL NOT ENTERTAIN LATE PRESENTATION REQUESTS NOR LATE PRESENTATION SUBMISSIONS. I’ve been lenient on this in the past and the group has abused my benevolence. Therefore, I have to be hard lined. 

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

Please review your presentation to verify that they have followed the cited Presentation Style Guidelines. Also, to support the web site search tool used by the IEEE 802.3 web site, the 'Document Information' fields of the PDF file must be completed as follows:

Title: Title of presentation
Author: Name(s) of author(s)
Subject: IEEE 802.3bt 4-Pair Power over Ethernet Task Force

I look forward to seeing everyone in San Diego!
