[802.3_100GNGOPTX] July Plenary Schedule

Dear Task Force Participants,

I have received a request for our schedule in Geneva to understand alignment with other projects in 802.3.

Given that this is a plenary, time available for our Task Force meetings will be Tues all day, Wed all day and Thursday morning. As usual, IEEE 802.3 will meet on Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon.

Its understood that conflicts in scheduling are going to occur for people who have interest in our project, 802.3bj and the 400G Study Group as they share common electrical and/or optical interest groups. I will work with the group chairs to see if we can align our work to avoid direct overlap on subjects, but no promises can be made.

As I pointed out in March and again in May, this natural overlap of interest groups is a driving force toward our Task Force getting its work done according to our adopted schedule as I anticipate a natural decline in participation will result as other projects take on increased focus in the industry.

Therefore; Please use the ad hocs to advance our progress as effectively as possible and continue to work between meetings toward a complete draft review & finalization of any/all baseline proposals as I have earlier communicated.

Best Regards,

Dan Dove
Chair, IEEE P802.3bm
