[EFM] Portland Meeting Announcement and Call For Presentations

Dear members of the IEEE 802.3 EFM Study Group,

Our next meeting will take place on July 10-12 at the Downtown
Marriot in Portland, OR. The meeting will start at 8:30 am on 
Tuesday July 10th. We will conclude at noon on Thursday July 12th.

Also note that we have requested a tutorial slot on Monday night, 
July 9th. A group of us will be conducting a tutorial on EFM for the 
rest of the IEEE 802 LMSC membership in order to familiarize them 
with our project.

We plan to ask for approval of our PAR and 5 Criteria documents during 
this week. The first decision is in the hands of the 802.3 WG, where we 
will ask for approval on Thursday afternoon, July 12th. The second 
decision is in the hands of the IEEE 802 SEC, which meets Friday afternoon, 
July 13th. This is a critical step in the standards development process.

Please see the meeting announcement at:

If you haven't made your hotel reservation yet, please do so now.
Also, please remember that since this meeting takes place during
an IEEE 802 plenary week, you must register to attend the IEEE 802
meeting. Registration instructions can be found at the link above.
You get a break on the registration fee if you pre-register for the
meeting by June 27th. 

If you wish to make a presentation at the meeting, you must send me
the following information no later than Monday, July 2nd:

i.   The presenter's name
ii.  The presentation title
iii. The estimated time required
iv.  A brief synopsis of the material (a couple of sentences)

Presentations should address:

1) Refinements of or additions to the Objectives that the EFM study group 
has identified for the project.

2) Additional presentations which support the 5 Criteria. We assigned 
several action items to groups at the St. Louis meeting, and top priority 
will be given to hearing the responses from those groups.

I *strongly* encourage the development of presentations with
multiple co-sponsors.  Jointly sponsored presentations 
*will get preferential treatment* in the allocation of time slots 
on our agenda.

I look forward to seeing you in Portland!

Howard Frazier
Chair, IEEE 802.3 EFM Study Group
