Dear Task Force
The IEEE P802.3bm Task
Force will be meeting at the upcoming IEEE 802.3 plenary in
Orlando, Florida USA. The IEEE P802.3bm Task Force will be
meeting Tuesday March 19th through Thursday March 21st, 2013.
I anticipate full days on Tuesday and Wednesday, with Thursday
morning reserved for additional time if required. Registration
and meeting details may be found at http://802world.org/plenary/.
You are strongly encouraged to register and make your
reservations as soon as possible.
Our Task Force is to produce baseline
proposals with which to generate a draft. It is highly
recommended that you work within the ad hocs to establish
consensus around a baseline approach and then bring in joint
presentations that may be used as the basis for a baseline
To provide guidance for SMF proposals to move forward based upon
the January straw poll results, I produced a presentation that
was given to the SMF ad hoc. http://www.ieee802.org/3/bm/public/smfadhoc/meetings/feb5_13/dove_01_0213_smf.pdf.
It is recommended that baseline proponents review this
presentation and incorporate new material that will help
persuade the Task Force to adopt their proposals rather than
repeat material that has already been presented.
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 requester
should contact the chair prior to making the request to justify
the additional time.
Requests for presentation time must be made before the second
Friday preceding the meeting. For the March Plenary meeting,
requests for presentation time shall be made to me at dan_dove@xxxxxxxx
and must be made by midnight AOE on March 8,
The presenter shall e-mail a PDF, soft-copy version of the
presentation to me at dan_dove@xxxxxxxx by Tuesday of the week preceding the meeting.
For the March Plenary meeting, presentations must be submitted
by midnight AOE on March 12, 2012.
Please copy our vice-chair, Kapil Shrikhande <kapils@xxxxxxxx>
on your requests and presentation submittal.
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.
For your presentation request, please include
Title of Presentation
We 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 P802.3bm 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s Fiber
Optic Task Force
As a reminder to the
group, we are a contribution driven organization. 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.
See you in Phoenix.
Chair, IEEE p802.3bm Task Force
