stds-802-16: 802.16.1 presentation plans
Now that the Session #4 contributions for 802.16.1 are in, I'd like
to begin finalizing the presentation plans.
*We received 21 PHY and 14 MAC contributions.
*It seems that we had allocated enough session time to give each
802.16.1 PHY and MAC contribution its full hearing, as originally
planned: 15 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of question time.
The PHY group will have a long day and will need to make use of the
Tuesday evening session we set aside for this purpose.
*By Wednesday November 3, the MAC and PHY Task Group Chairs should
publish their agendas for their Tuesday and Wednesday meetings. There
is no obligation to accommodate submissions unless they were
responsive to the Call for Contributions. For each paper, the agenda
should show the starting time, the document number, the document
title, the contributors, and contributors' affiliations. These
agendas should be presented as formal documents.
*These agendas should be formally presented for presentation at the
802.16 Opening Plenary on Monday. At that time, motions to modify the
agendas will be in order. After the Opening Plenary, the Tuesday and
Wednesday 802.16.1 agendas should be considered final.
*The PHY Task Group meeting will be chaired by PHY TG Chair Jay
Klein. The PHY TG meeting will be chaired by MAC TG Vice Chair Jung
Yee, replacing MAC TG Chair Lou Olsen, who will be unable to attend.
*The Session Chairs must carefully watch the time. Each presentation
must start on time, for two reasons: (1) we don't have any spare time
to run late; (2) it won't be fair to allow unequal opportunities.
Anyone in attendance may (and is encouraged to) raise an immediate
Point of Order when a presentation or the following question time
exceeds 15 minutes. If the presentation finishes early, the remaining
time will be used for questions and answers.
*Session Chairs are responsible to get each speaker into place in
time to start on time, even if that means disconnecting the previous
speaker's laptop before question time is over.
*During question time, the Session Chair is responsible to allocate
the time fairly among all those wishing to ask a question. Those with
a question should step to the floor microphone during the
presentation. After the presentation, the Chair should divide the
available question time by the number of people in line at the mike
and thereby determine the amount of time available per
question/answer. After this time, the answer must be cut off to allow
a opportunity by everyone in line at the start of question time. Each
person in line is allowed a single question but may subsequently
return to the end of the line.
*Session Chairs are responsible to ensure that question time is
limited to clarification of the presenter's points. This period is
not intended as a debate.
*The PHY and MAC groups are each scheduled for a four-hour debating
period on Thursday morning. By 12:30, Voting Members must submit
their evaluation files.
*I will post the final scoring forms as soon as I have the agenda of
proposals to be included. This will give voters a chance to begin
their initial scoring based on the posted documents.
