[802.3_100GNGOPTX] Agenda and Call for Presentations - November 2014 Plenary

Dear Task Force Participants,

The IEEE P802.3bm 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s Optical Task Force will be held during the IEEE 802.3 September 2014 Interim Meeting (week of Nov 2nd).  Meeting details may be found at

 The Task Force will be meeting Tuesday, 9am - 5pm and will schedule additional time if required.  As we are recirculating Draft 802.3bm D3.2 for comments, presentations for the week should be focused on comments.   Anyone wishing to present, please provide the following information (per Procedure for Presenters web page: Please copy Pete Anslow (panslow@xxxxxxxxx) our Chief Editor, the editor of the relevant clause, and Kapil Shrikhande (kapil_shrikhande@xxxxxxxx) on presentation requests.

Name of presenter
Title of presentation (Include relevant comment ID)

Length of time requested (this should include time for questions and answers)

Brief description of topic

Presentations should be kept to 15 minutes in duration, excluding time for questions and answers.  Requests for presentation time greater than 15 minutes will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and the requestor should contact the chair prior to making the request to justify the additional time.  As a point of interest, it has been said that "brevity is the soul of wit", so please make your presentations concise and efficient.

The deadline for presentation requests will be Friday, October 24th at midnight AOE.
The deadline for complete presentation submissions will be Tuesday, October 28th at midnight AOE.

Requests after the deadline will be considered only by the Task Force. Complete presentations submitted after the deadline may or may not be accepted by the chair, and will be subject to Task Force approval prior to presentation.

As a reminder, please make sure that all requests for presentations or submissions of presentation material have no restrictive notices within their email.  All such emails will be refused and requests / presentations will not be acknowledged. 
 I 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:
