Please read the 802 LMSC P&P  section 7.4.2




7.4 Study Groups


Study groups are formed when enough interest has been identified for a

particular area of study,

such as a new access method or modified use of an existing access method.

Two types of Study

Groups are specified:


a) An Executive Committee Study Group (ECSG) is initiated by vote of the


Committee and the ECSG Chair is appointed and approved by the Executive


The ECSG Chair has the same responsibilities as a Working Group Chair as

specified in

subclause but does not have Executive Committee voting rights.


b) A Working Group Study Group (WGSG) is initiated by vote of the Working

Group or

TAG and approved by the Executive Committee. The WGSG Chair is appointed and

approved by the Working Group or TAG.


The Study Group shall have a defined task with specific output and a

specific time frame

established within which it is allowed to study the subject. It is expected

that the work effort to

develop a PAR will originate in an ECSG or WGSG. A Study Group shall report


recommendations, shall have a limited lifetime, and is chartered

session-to-session. A study

group is expected to submit a PAR to the EC for consideration within two

plenary sessions of

itıs initiation.  After the Study Group recommendations have been accepted

by the parent body,

the Study Group will be disbanded no later than the end of the next Plenary

establish a new

Working Group or TAG to carry out recommended work items shall be made by

the Executive

Committee with due consideration of advice from the Study Group.


7.4.1 Study Group Operation


Progress of each Study Group shall be presented at Opening Plenary meetings

by the Working

Group, TAG, or ECSG Chair. Study Groups may elect officers other than the

Chair, if necessary,

specified in subclauses and 7.2.4. Because of the limited time duration of a Study Group, no

letter ballots are
