[STDS-802-11] Fwd: [802-ALL] Cancellation Notice: 2020 March IEEE 802 Plenary - Atlanta

--- This message came from the IEEE 802.11 Working Group Reflector ---
Dear 802.11 members,

Please see the notice below for details - the March 2020 plenary session is cancelled.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my recent request for input. Over the past days I have received
well north of 100 responses and items of input.

We will schedule additional teleconference calls (10 day notice) over the next weeks to recover some of the time
we would have had in Atlanta, and the advance technical work underway. I request that the the leadership of each TG/subgroup
develop a teleconference plan for their subgroup. On the Monday March 9th CAC call we'll discuss this in more detail.

Note that TGax, TGay, TGba and TGmd are all operating as SA ballot comment resolution committees, and can (already) take technical decisions (voting, drafts to ballot) on teleconferences.

Thanks very much, may you and your families stay in good health -

To: <STDS-802-ALL@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

IEEE 802 and its family of 802 networking standards have paved the way for global connectivity. For 40 years the face-to-face engagement of the 802 community at our plenary meetings has enabled innovation for the future.

With due regard to the health and safety of our volunteers in the 802 community and in light of the growing global concern regarding COVID-19, on 5 March the LMSC made the difficult decision to cancel the IEEE 802 Plenary Session previously scheduled for 15-20 March in Atlanta. This decision recognizes that government and company travel restrictions now make it impossible for the LMSC to hold a successful face-to-face plenary with all constituents of the 802 community fairly represented.

Please expect information from staff of Face To Face Events regarding arrangement for a full refund of your registration fees. 

You are responsible to cancel your hotel reservations. Details for cancelling your Hilton Atlanta reservation will be provided directly via email on Monday the 9th; please wait until you receive those instructions before you cancel.

We recognize that the timing of this decision has significantly inconvenienced many of you. However, this decision was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our volunteers, staff, vendors, and the Atlanta community.
