All individuals submitting presentations should review the Procedures for Presenters Page (   I would greatly appreciate presenters reviewing their own presentations to verify that they have followed the cited Presentation Style Guidelines.


Also, to support the web site search tool used by the IEEE P802.3 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 P802.3ba Task Force


In the past, individuals have forwarded presentations to our webmaster, Frank Chang, asking him to post the presentations.  All should note that files are not posted until they have been reviewed, so please follow directions noted above.


As a reminder to the group, we are a contribution driven organization, and we do have a fairly large project underway.  It should not be assumed by anyone that work will just get done without contributions to drive it.  Areas not moving forward will be brought to the attention of the Task Force for consideration on how to address, as such issues can not be allowed to threaten the overall project schedule. 

I look forward to seeing everyone in Munich!


Best Regards,
