[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
Chair, IEEE P802.3bm
